Kansas Surgical Arts to open second clinic at the Waterfront

Kansas Surgical Arts is expanding with a new east-side clinic at the Waterfront at the northeast corner of 13th and Webb Road.

“We’re growing, and we offer a lot of different services,” says Tori Deatherage, marketing director.

The clinic will open in the former New Leaf Vein and Aesthetics space next to Bonefish Grill.

The first Kansas Surgical Arts clinic is on the west side in the Ridgewood Medical Building on Ridge Road just south of K-96.

Deatherage says the clinic’s physician, Stephanie Oberhelman, feels that the second clinic is necessary to better serve patients, some of whom come from as far away as Oklahoma.

As the practice has grown with new employees, Deatherage says it’s also added services. It offers cosmetic surgery, vein care and general surgery. New services include such things as facials and skin-care treatments.

“We’ve really grown a lot over the last year as far as our cosmetic patients,” Deatherage says.

The new Waterfront practice will focus mostly on facials, laser treatments, waxing and consultations, she says.

Don Piros of Landmark Commercial Real Estate handled the deal for the 3,532-square-foot space.

He says there’s been a lot of inquiries for space at the Waterfront due to Whole Foods opening at Waterfront Plaza, which is on the northwest corner of the intersection.

Piros says he has three prospects for the former Metro Grill space. After that, there’s only one vacant space left in that part of the Waterfront. It’s a 2,100-square-foot space where an interior decorating business used to be. There’s also 1,300 square feet on a balcony, but Piros says a tenant would have to pay only for the ground level.

The new Kansas Surgical Arts office will open just after the first week of November.

Deatherage says that will be it for expansion plans for now.

“It’ll be perfect for right now,” she says. “We’re just kind of taking it a step at a time.”
