Kelly Gabel, D.O., General Surgeon received his Doctor of Osteopathy (DO) from Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences and completed his residency in General Surgery at Botsford Hospital, Farmington Hills, MI (Michigan State University).

“Of all my rotations, General Surgery was the one that allowed me to use my hands as well as my knowledge and fulfill the vision I had growing up. I love that I can make a significant difference in a short amount of time. From caring for the critically injured, to screening for colon cancer, people come out of surgery and feel a relief they haven’t felt in months. I am able to see the impact I am having on my patients take place before my eyes. General Surgery has also challenged me in ways I never would have thought, which keeps me focused and interested every day.”

General Surgeon Kelly Gabel is originally from St. Francis. “I saw the needs in northwest Kansas while growing up in Cheyenne County. It was always my goal to return and provide what I knew we needed. Coming to Colby seemed to fall into place, and when we considered all aspects, it became an easy decision,” he said.

Dr. Kelly is married to Dr. Sarah and they have three children, Elijah, Aleha and Korin. He enjoys wrestling, guitar, golf and hunting. He is dedicated to his family and faith and is a proud native of northwest Kansas.
