about us

Meet Zelda Thiebaut

At the bright, young age of 16, I found myself falling in love with the profession of Medical Orthotics and Prosthetics.

For the last 26 years, I have had the great privilege of being able to fulfil my passion at the Department of Health, and now I seek to continue this fulfilment at Du Plessis Orthotics and Prosthetics – a journey I very much look forward to walking!

I believe my God-given talent is to restore hope to all people that come into my sphere of influence, and I intend to do exactly that at DP Ortho.

My husband Mark, and myself have been married for 20 wonderful years and are blessed with two beautiful daughters, Méa(18) and Zoë(11).

I am exited to become part of the professional and dedicated team at DP Ortho, and I am looking so forward to meeting and building a relationship with all new and existing clients. 

Meet Christiaan du Plessis

I studied in Pretoria where I did my B-Tech degree, after which I worked in Cape Town at Conradie and Groote Schuur hospital where I trained in Corrective Spinal Bracing and Prosthetics. My sweet spot is my practice, where I find fulfilment in my work. I’ve realised that a smooth sea never made a skilled sailor. Thus, I work with all patients regardless of their age or gender, whether short or long term.

My profession is unique because it combines art with science and compassion. I prefer to meet my patients emotionally where they are, learning who they are, listening to what they want and trying my best to meet their expectations. I listen to what they are and what they are not saying. Listen, listen, listen – trying to cherish my patient’s needs and not only consider what the problem is. I believe in my emotional intelligence enough to judge situations and patients accurately. I realise that my business is about them and not me.

I am a keen gardener, devoted dog owner, and a very proud husband.
