10 June 2014

AMA Victoria President, Dr Tony Bartone, today paid tribute to the Victorian doctors who have been recognised in the Queen's Birthday Honours list for their service to medicine, which included AMA Victoria Vice President, Dr Gary Speck.

"All of these well-deserving recipients are true assets in our community and today's awards are a great way to acknowledge and thank them for their years of medical service to the community," Dr Bartone said.

"I would especially like to praise AMA Victoria Vice President, Dr Gary Speck, who has been made a Member of the Order of Australia for significant service to medicine as an orthopaedic surgeon, and to professional organisations.

"Gary is a leading authority in the treatment of spinal disorders, advising and instructing fellow doctors and international colleagues in the field of spinal care, in particular minimally-invasive surgery.

"Outside the operating theatre, Gary is a respected educator, conducting lectures at Monash, Melbourne and Latrobe universities. AMA Victoria is very grateful to have him on our Board, and his knowledge and passion for medicine are also benefited by the Spine Society of Australia, Australian Orthopaedic Association, North American Spine Society, SICOT, the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and he is the Australian delegate to the International Society for Minimal Intervention in Spinal Surgery. 

"I congratulate all of today's recipients for their ongoing and exemplary services to medicine as practitioners, researchers or educators, Dr Bartone said.
