About Dr. Kindel
Levi W. Kindel, M.D. grew up in Aurora, Kansas. He graduated from Concordia High School. While attending Kansas State University Dr. Kindel experienced an ankle injury and sought care from Dr. Daily in Salina, KS. He then shadowed Dr. Daily throughout college, ultimately attending University of Kansas School of Medicine in Salina where he obtained his M.D.
He spent his time after high school at Butler County Community College as a member of the football team. After Butler he attended Kansas State University where he was a member of the Track & Field team throwing the weight and the hammer. Eventually he would move to Salina and attend medical school where he continued to work closely with our community physicians.
Following medical school, Dr. Kindel completed Orthopedic Surgery Residency at the University of Kansas School of Medicine in Wichita, Kansas. His training included work at Wesley Medical Center, Ascension Via Christi St. Francis, Robert J. Dole VA Medical Center, and six months of training in Pediatric Orthopedics at Shriners Children’s Hospital in St. Louis.
Dr. Kindel is excited to return to Salina to begin his practice. He looks forward to providing care to the community and working with the medical school.
Outside of his professional career, Dr. Kindel enjoys spending time with his wife, Amber, and their children Emma, Ensley, and Harrison. As a family, they are active in their children's sporting activities. During his free time Dr. Kindel enjoys wood and metal-working. He enjoys working on vehicles and has plans to one day fully restore a family antique pickup.
