Aaron M. Nilhas, MD

I have the privilege of teaching medical students and future surgeons for the state of Kansas, and Wichita is very strong about providing future surgeons for Kansas.

Dr. Aaron Nilhas is a general surgeon specializing in gallbladder, hernia and endocrine surgery; colon resections; upper and lower endoscopy procedures; as well as acute care surgery.

He grew up on a farm in WaKeeney, Kansas, and received his medical degree from the University of Kansas School of Medicine. Dr. Nilhas believes that patients are their own best advocates, and that open communication is essential to achieving the best overall outcomes.

“Having the opportunity to teach medical students and help shape the future of Wichita’s medical community is just one of the many reasons I enjoy being a part of our great city and practicing with Wichita Surgical Specialists,” said Dr. Nilhas.
