Who are we?
Shinbone Medical is a small community clinic offering a range of health and sports related services in a unique location in the heart of ‘Shinboner’ territory in North Melbourne. Founded in 2012 by Dr Mitchell Anderson, the historic site is situated opposite the Arden Street oval and as such, has been named in honour of the mighty North Melbourne AFL club.

Mitch has gathered up a great team to compliment such a beautiful workspace. The team at Shinbone focus on providing a holistic approach to medicine, focusing on mind, body, diagnosis, and rehabilitation for elite athletes through to weekend warriors. Whilst sport is a keen area of interest, the team has a diverse mix of skills to support all members of the community. Book in for a corporate health check, adult, children and sports counselling, a back tune-up or support and management of a specific health problem.
We have a great team to help.
