Wichita Surgical Specialists, P.A,. is dedicated to promoting health by providing innovative, quality surgical care to our patients.
In 1963, George J. Farha, MD established his private surgical practice in Wichita, Kansas, and the following year his brother S. Jim Farha, MD, joined him. In 1967, the two brothers added a third surgeon to their practice, David E. Street, MD, beginning the formation of Wichita Surgical Specialists. Their goal was to recruit the best surgeons they could find so that the people of Wichita did not have to leave town every time they needed surgery.
Dr. George Farha was also among the founders of the University of Kansas School of Medicine-Wichita Department of Surgery in 1971, where he taught for more than three decades. Drs. George and Jim Farha were passionate about teaching, and saw it as an investment in the quality of medical education. Their contribution to the Wichita community and the medical industry is beyond measure, and we are proud to continue this legacy.
Today, Wichita Surgical Specialists is led by Alex Ammar, MD. We have gathered some of the most experienced and innovative surgeons into one of the largest private surgical groups in the nation. In addition to our main Wichita locations, our services include the practices of Breast Care Specialists and Vein Care Specialists. Mid-Kansas Ear, Nose and Throat Associates is a division of Wichita Surgical Specialists.
Our commitment remains the same, when you visit us, we will help see you through your surgical needs, serving you with integrity, innovative care and compassion. We are grateful for the trust and support of our patients and the Wichita community throughout our many years, and will continue to meet the surgical needs of our patients for years to come.
