physician assistant

Mark Vail, PA-C

Mark joined Mid-America Orthopedics in January 2019. He knew he wanted to choose a career in orthopedics for a few reasons. He had a lot of sports injuries that led him to orthopedic surgeons and physical therapy. After having a positive experience, that is when he knew this was the specialty he wanted. Mark is mechanically minded and enjoys building and repairing things, so orthopedics is the specialty that most closely relates to this. He works alongside John Babb, MD and treats patients at the West Wichita office. Outside of work, Mark enjoys wood working, home improvement projects, coaching his daughters in soccer, exercising, playing video games with friends and his daughters, and playing card games with family.
