About Me

Surgical Philosophy

            Offer excellence to patients.  Surgical illnesses initially present themselves with little lead time notice.  From a patient’s perspective there are a lot of unknowns.  I am mindful of theseuncertainties and the discomfort, disruptions, and anxiety they can bring.   I deliver a calm explanation of what is going on, what to expect, and bring quick resolution and recovery.


Benjamin H. Stone, M.D., F.A.C.S.

Laparoscopic and General Surgeon

            I was born and raised in Kansas.  I graduated with honors from Kansas State University (2000) and went on to receive my medical degree at the University of Kansas.  I trained at the University of Kansas for 5 years, completing my surgical training with distinct honors in 2009.

I am a board-certified General Surgeon with over 10 years of practice experience delivering quality surgical care.  I am passionate about achieving excellence.  This is demonstrated throughout my schooling, career, and professional development.  I completed residency at the University of Kansas Hospital with strong programs in General Surgery, Level 1 Trauma/Critical Care, Surgical Oncology, and Liver Transplant.  I maintain interests in surgical oncology and general surgery.
