If you need neck surgery, you don’t need to travel to Sioux City or Omaha.

Dr. Lee Merritt, a fellowship-trained orthopaedic spinal surgeon, has clinic appointments and performs surgeries at Burgess. Dr. Merritt has spent 20 years in private practice, doing orthopaedic trauma and complex spine surgery.

She not only performs neck surgery, she also provides a wide variety of minimally invasive procedures in the Burgess Surgical Center. These include rotator cuff surgery, carpal tunnel & trigger finger release, sciatic nerve decompression, fracture repair, and knee & shoulder scopes.

She is also available to consult with patients for treatment of conditions such as bursitis, gout, plantar fasciitis, joint disorders, osteoarthritis, and neck and back pain.

After many years as a spine surgeon in Arizona, Dr. Merritt moved back to Logan, Iowa, to the house in which she grew up. She then began work as a private contract surgeon, in underserved areas of Iowa. Dr. Merritt thoroughly enjoys the practice of medicine, and in her spare time, living the rural Iowa lifestyle. She believes that health requires purpose and happiness.
