Private Hospital gynaecology care

Dr McCallum operates at Knox Private Hospital, Ringwood Private Hospital, and Mitcham Private Hospital. It is usually possible to organise surgery quite promptly and as a private patient, you may be assured that your operation will be performed by Dr McCallum himself.

Public Hospital access

As well as practicing in private, Dr McCallum is the Director of Gynaecology for Eastern Health.

He sees uninsured patients at Craignish Specialist Centre who may require treatment through the public system and operates at both Box Hill Hospital and Angliss Hospital. He is able to book uninsured women requiring operation onto the waiting list for surgery at these hospitals.
