Children’s Mercy of Kansas City, Mo., is starting a general surgery clinic for children in Wichita at 3243 E. Murdock, Suite 201.
The clinic, which will be done using telemedicine, will allow surgeons to see patients for pre- and post-operative appointments remotely. The clinic is intended to help reduce travel time for families who need to go to Kansas City for the actual surgery, according to a news release.
Children’s Mercy expects it will see about 120 patients in the general surgery clinic each year.
Since it first opened a clinic in 2012, Children’s Mercy has rapidly expanded its Wichita clinics.
