MARYSVILLE – Community Memorial Healthcare (CMH) is pleased to announce the addition of a neurosurgeon clinic to their lineup of outpatient services, starting this July.
Dr. Benjamin Bixenmann, neurosurgeon, has been approved by the hospital’s board of directors to begin practicing in Marysville, beginning with his first clinic on July 11, 2018.
“We are thrilled to be adding Dr. Bixenmann to our outpatient clinic schedule. He is highly skilled in his field, and his services fill a need in our community,” said Curtis Hawkinson, CEO.
Dr. Benjamin Bixenmann is a board certified neurosurgeon who comes to Marysville from the Nebraska Neurosurgery Group, Lincoln, Neb. He specializes in surgery of the spine, brain and peripheral nerves, including repairs for disk herniation, spinal deformities, compression fractures, back or neck pain, brain tumors, glioblastomas, carpel tunnel syndrome, nerve compression, brain aneurysms, hemorrhagic stroke, traumatic brain injury, epilepsy, and more.
Dr. Bixenmann grew up in Lincoln, Neb., graduated Magna Cum Laude from Hillsdale College in 2005, and received his Doctorate of Medicine with High Distinction in 2009 at the University of Nebraska College of Medicine, Omaha, Neb. He completed a neurosurgical residency at the Mayfield Clinic and University of Cincinnati Medical Center in 2015. He is on staff at various Lincoln hospitals and outreach clinics, and has received multiple research awards and publication in both national and international peer reviewed medical journals throughout his training.
“Dr. Bixenmann already has several patients scheduled for his first clinic, and we are pleased to bring his specialty skills to the patients in this area. Any time people don’t have to travel to see a medical provider they would otherwise have to make accommodations to go see, that’s really important to our patients here,” Hawkinson said.
Patients need a referral from their primary care provider to be seen by Dr. Bixenmann. If you would like to be schedule an appointment, please request a referral from your primary care provider at your next appointment. Providers may contact the CMH outpatient clinic at 785-562-4459.
