Why I became a colon-rectal surgeon is one of the most common questions I get. I think being able to prevent and cure colon cancer is one of the biggest privileges I have.
Dr. Lindsay A. Strader is a board-certified colon and rectal surgeon.
Dr. Strader felt compelled to practice with Wichita Surgical Specialists not only because she is a Wichita native but because of the residency and training programs available.
“We teach and mentor medical students as well as residents, and that was important to me,” said Dr. Strader. “It was important to me during my residency here in Wichita and I wanted to pass that on as well.”
Dr. Strader’s surgical interests include laparoscopic and robotic colon resection, endoscopy, endorectal ultrasonography, and transanal minimally invasive surgery.
