Manhattan Surgical Hospital offers new neuro, spine

surgery services

Manhattan Surgical Hospital is now offering spine surgery as a part of its growing list of surgical specialties. The hospital’s partnership with Stormont Vail Health has resulted in bringing two Cotton O’Neil physicians to Manhattan to regularly hold clinics and complete complex back and spine surgical procedures.

Dr. Matthew J. Wills, M.D., Neurosurgery, and Dr. Michael L. Smith, M.D., Orthopedic Surgery, are two physicians who will be performing back and spine procedures at Manhattan Surgical Hospital.

“We feel this is the first of many opportunities to expand the services available to the region through our new partnership with Stormont Vail Health,” said CEO Chris Stipe. “Local access to specialized neuro and spine surgery is a huge win for Manhattan.”

Both Dr. Wills and Dr. Smith will hold regular clinic office hours on a rotating schedule at the Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Center, at 1600 Charles Place. Call (785) 354-9591 for an appointment.
