Christopher Morrissey

I am a husband, father of 9, and a board certified general surgeon. I have been in Winfield, KS since June 2012.

I was born and raised in Phillipsburg, KS. I graduated from Phillipsburg High in 1995. I then went on to Fort Hays State University where I got my Bachelor's of Science Degree in Physical Education with an Athletic Training emphasis. When I was nearing graduation, I decided to further my career by going into medicine. I married my wife on July 17, 1999 and then we moved up by Concordia, KS. I went to Cloud County Community College to obtain my pre-requisite courses for medical school. I worked as a nurse's aid and also did on the job training as a respiratory therapist. I was accepted to Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences College of Osteopathic Medicine in August 2002. I graduated in 2007; I also took a year off and did an Undergraduate Fellowship in Osteopathic Manipulation. After medical school, my family and I went to Grand Blanc, Michigan where I was accepted into my residency of general surgery. I graduated from there in June 2012.

Before residency was over, I accepted a general surgery job at William Newton Hospital in Winfield, KS where I am still a hospital employed physician. Since starting here, I have helped start our wound center where I serve as the Medical Director. I am also the Medical Director of our Trauma program. I work in our ER most Monday nights from 6pm-6am. I am also the Medical Director for Rejuvv med spa, here in Winfield as well.

My hobbies include concurrent training, being a garage gym athlete, and constantly trying to learn something new. I am a huge fan of music, specifically death metal. The louder and faster it is, the more I love it!! I also love watching movies with my family as well.
