Dr. Anna Esparham (She’s known as Dr. Anna Banana to the littlest patients!) is a board-certified pediatrician at the University of Kansas (KU) Program in Integrative Medicine. She received her bachelor’s degree in ecology and environmental biology from the University of Colorado in Boulder, Colorado and went on to pursue her doctorate degree (MD) at the KU School of Medicine and finished her residency in Pediatrics at KU Medical Center.
Dr. Anna has the expertise and the experience to address the needs of young patients through a unique approach to stimulating the body’s natural healing response.
Our mission at KU Integrative Medicine is to nourish the whole person– body, mind and spirit. We combine the best therapies from conventional medicine with our integrative medicine approach, to form a comprehensive system of biomedical care.
From a patient’s very first visit with us, we attempt to uncover the underlying story of the patient’s journey from wellness to disease. We listen. Based on our findings, we tailor a plan for each individual patient based on their lifestyle, their needs and their preferences. We consider the patient an integral part of the treatment team, and encourage patients to take control of their medical care.
Practitioners at KU Integrative Medicine include physicians, a naturopathic doctor, nurses, certified neurofeedback technicians and registered dietitians. We hope that you want to learn more about us, our services, and how we can help you forge a new path to healing and wellness.
Because Integrative Medicine attempts to dig deeper, very specialized lab work is often ordered. This also enables us to personalize your care and cater to your biochemical individuality.
