(Topeka, Kan., Jan. 2, 2017) – Stormont Vail Health is proud to announce that Brenner Dixon, M.D., has joined our medical team and will practice as a general surgery physician.
Dr. Dixon joined a pre-medicine group in college on a whim and found his passion and calling in life.
“I have always enjoyed working with my hands,” said Dixon. “But being able to see immediate relief for patients who have yet to find success in relieving their pain has been my favorite part of working in medicine.”
Dr. Dixon received his medical degree at the University of Colorado, Denver, Colorado, in 2008. He completed his general surgery residency at West Virginia University, Morgantown, West Virginia, in 2014 and his minimally invasive surgery fellowship at St. Vincent Hospital, Indianapolis, Indiana, in 2015.
“The general surgery field is in a state of major transition,” said Dixon. “With an emphasis on minimally invasive procedures, patients are often pleasantly surprised to find out that their procedure is either outpatient or requires a very short hospital stay.”
He enjoys spending time with his wife and two young children, playing card games and spending time outdoors hiking, biking and skiing.
