Upson Welcomes Plastic Surgeons

Upson Regional Medical Center is pleased to welcome Chattahoochee Plastic Surgery physicians Dr. Shenita White and Dr. Vincent Naman.


Dr. White is a world-class, board-certified plastic surgeon from the Atlanta area. She received her Bachelor’s Degree from Emory University and her medical degree from Morehouse School of Medicine. She completed her plastic and reconstructive training at Detroit Medical Center and her internship and residency in general surgery at Howard University hospital in D.C. She is currently employed by Chattahoochee Plastic Surgery in Columbus, Georgia but will be accepting patients at Upson.


Dr. White specializes in plastic surgery procedures for men and women. She has a special interest in breast revision cases, patients who have overcome breast cancer, hand surgery, and body contouring techniques.


Dr. Naman will be available to assist with cases when collaboration would be needed. Dr. Naman, originally from New York City, has been practicing in the Columbus area since 1995. He is a graduate of Princeton University and Albert Einstein College of Medicine at Yeshiva University. He completed his internship and residency in General Surgery at New York Medical College and earned a fellowship to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota where he completed his training in plastic surgery. Naman is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and stays current in his specialty by attending many national and international educational meetings in plastic and cosmetic surgery.


Dr. Darryl Knight of Upson Surgical Associates said “I feel our patients and hospital are extremely fortunate to have access to the new services that Dr. White and Dr. Naman offer.  One of the most important advantages of having plastic surgery and reconstructive services as part of the Upson team will be that our patients receive the option of reconstructive surgery immediately after mastectomy, instead of waiting for an appointment and traveling outside of our community.”


Dr. White will be taking appointments at Upson Surgical Associates. For appointments, call 706-494-7700.
