PLASTIC surgeon, Mr Howard Webster could see a big gap in the Goulburn Valley’s health care system with a local need for Plastic Surgeons. Mr Webster grew up in Euroa and for 21 years now, Mr Webster has worked part time in Shepparton.

In the early days, typically seeing 80 patients a day during the three days a month that Mr Webster came to town, he got to a point where he understood that the waiting times for patients were too stressful and in 2008 he established GV Specialist Centre.

GV Specialist Centre was purpose built with a commitment to providing the people of the Goulburn and Murray Valleys with a local centre for leading visiting medical specialists.  The GV Specialist Centre offers a continuity of care with nurses and GP’s along with specialists under the one roof.

The services include plastic surgery with several plastic surgeons, a GP Skin Cancer Clinic, a Molemap service with trained melanographers enabling early detection of skin cancers and a dermatology service.

Mr Webster said, “I wanted to reduce the waiting time for people in need of skin cancer treatment, and now people are being seen quickly and are looked after by an excellent team of people under the one roof.”

Located at 20 Wyndham Street in Shepparton, GV Specialist Centre provides a team of GPs and specialists who really know their patients. For more information, phone 5820 0500.
