Melvin D. Schursky, Jr., MD
Dr. Melvin SchurskyDr. Schursky specializes in general surgery. He chose general surgery because he "loves the broad range of surgical care that he provides for all ages at Riverside Surgical Specialists."  

General surgery also provides Dr. Schursky with opportunities to continually use the latest in advanced minimally invasive surgical techniques. As he puts it, "My goal is to provide excellent, state-of-the-art care to all patients in our community." He has a special interest in surgical treatments for peripheral vascular disease and venous stasis disease. Dr. Schursky uses a new, minimally invasive procedure to treat varicose veins and their underlying cause with little or no pain.

Dr. Schursky graduated from Temple University School of Medicine and competed a fellowship at the Children's Hospital Boston. He has been board-certified by the American Board of Surgeons since 2009.

Originally from the Philadelphia area, Dr. Schursky and his wife enjoy being outdoors playing golf, fishing, sailing and gardening in their spare time. They particularly enjoy how close and personable everyone in the Gloucester community is.
