Providence neurosurgeons now accepting Humana Medicare products

Neurosurgery of South Kansas City, whose physicians are on the Providence Medical Center Medical Staff, Kansas City, Kan., has recently begun accepting Humana Medicare products.

The group’s Kansas City, Kan. office is located at 2040 Hutton Road, Suite 105, near The Legends and just blocks from the Providence campus.

The board-certified neurosurgeons who see patients at this location include Frank Holladay, M.D., Norman Bamber, M.D., and John Clough, M.D. The physicians provide comprehensive neurosurgical care for the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of disorders affecting the nervous system.

They perform surgeries for back pain, ruptured discs, spinal fractures, spinal abnormalities, brain tumors, congenital abnormalities, hydrocephalus (fluid on the brain) and many other conditions affecting the neurological system.

“While Providence has accepted Humana Medicare coverage for some time, we’re excited that our neurosurgeons are also participating in these plans,” says Randall Nyp, president/CEO, Providence and Saint John Hospital, Leavenworth, Kan. “This will make it possible for our patients that need neurosurgical procedures and have Humana Medicare to receive their care closer to home.”

The hospital’s neurosurgeons use the latest techniques to perform many procedures using microsurgery and minimally invasive procedures that minimize risk and enhance recovery.
