ENT (otolaryngologist) Ear Nose & Throat

Lincoln Health is excited to have Owen Reichman, MD of ENT of Denver as a specialist at our Specialty Clinic.

Dr. Reichman founded ENT of Denver PC in 2001. He spent much of his upbringing in Chicago and practiced otolaryngology for 10 years at Emory University before relocating to Denver. His practice includes adult and pediatric disorders of the ear, nose, sinuses, larynx, head and neck. He has been voted a Top Doc by Denver’s 5280 magazine the last 10 years in a row. He attended medical school at the University of Utah and completed his residency at University of Texas – San Antonio.  He is board certified in the specialty of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery.

 

An ear, nose, and throat doctor (ENT) specializes in everything having to do with those parts of the body. They’re also called otolaryngologists.

ENTs deal with anything that has to do with the head, neck, and ears in adults and children, including:

General Surgery

Charles Frankum, MD
Surgical Specilist, General

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal), hernia repair, PowerPort placement, cyst removal.

Hernia repair refers to a surgical operation for the correction of a hernia—a bulging of internal organs or tissues through the wall that contains it. It can be of two different types: herniorrhaphy; or hernioplasty.

Plastic and Hand surgery

Morry Olenick, MD
Plastic Surgeon
Hand Surgeon

Carpal tunnel release, lesion removal with skin grafting if necessary, trigger finger release, amputation of finger/toe

Carpal tunnel release is a surgery used to treat and potentially heal the painful condition known as carpal tunnel syndrome. Doctors used to think that carpal tunnel syndrome was caused by an overuse injury or a repetitive motion performed by the wrist or hand, often at work.

Ophthalmology

John M. Roberts Jr., MD
Ophthalmologist

Cataract surgery, YAG procedure

Cataract surgery is a procedure to remove the lens of your eye and, in most cases, replace it with an artificial lens. Normally, the lens of your eye is clear. A cataract causes the lens to become cloudy, which eventually affects your vision.

YAG Laser Capsulotomy is a laser procedure where the eye(s) is dilated, giving the doctor a view of the protein buildup behind the implanted lens. The YAG laser clears protein film to restore vision.

Urology

John Logan, MD
Urologist

Cystoscopy

Cystoscopy (sis-TOS-kuh-pee) is a procedure that allows your doctor to examine the lining of your bladder and the tube that carries urine out of your body (urethra). A hollow tube (cystoscope) equipped with a lens is inserted into your urethra and slowly advanced into your bladder.

Orthopedic Surgery

Jeffrey Schopp, MD
Orthopedic Surgeon

Arthroscopy of shoulder and knee

Arthroscopy (also called arthroscopic or keyhole surgery) is a minimally invasive surgical procedure on a joint in which an examination and sometimes treatment of damage is performed using an arthroscope, an endoscope that is inserted into the joint through a small incision.

Cardiology

John Ord, MD, FACC

NucMed stress tests. We also do HIDA scans, thyroid scans, and bone scans with NucMed.

A nuclear stress test uses radioactive dye and an imaging machine to create pictures showing the blood flow to your heart. The test measures blood flow while you are at rest and are exerting yourself, showing areas with poor blood flow or damage in your heart.

Pulmonary Function Testing (PFT)

Lincoln Health now offers Pulmonary Function Testing, or PFT. PFT is a test used to measure how well the lungs work. It measures how much air the lungs can hold and how quickly air is moved into and out of the lungs. It also measures how much oxygen is used and how much carbon dioxide is given off during breathing. A PFT can be used to diagnose a lung disease and to see how well treatment for the disease is working. Also called lung function test and pulmonary function test.

Pain Management

Managing Pain on a personal level.

Holistic Pain Management takes a holistic approach to managing your chronic pain. We are not a “block shop” that simply takes a short meeting, prescribes a medication, and sends you on your way. Instead, we take a multi-faceted approach to treating a wide range of pain types, patient types, and personal goals. At HPM, we make it a priority to build personal relationships, taking additional time to educate you on options and expectations.

They offer cutting- edge opioid alternatives to treat chronic pain conditions. Rather than make patients rely on addictive prescriptions or mask the pain for a short while, they treat the cause. They also offer non-operative spine, operative spine, orthopedic, and radiological services to better serve a wide range of needs.

What you can expect for your first appointment:

For new patients, will set aside one hour for them to share their pain story. We will comprehensively evaluate their cause of pain during that time which allows us to provide an accurate diagnosis and develop a personalized treatment regimen that will best benefit future treatment recommendations.

We will present the patient with education regarding their diagnosis and our plan to reduce pain and improve function. We will then order imaging and personally review those findings; refer patient to physical therapy, massage therapy, chiropractic care, and/or counseling; and prescribe appropriate non-opioid medications and/or order injections when believed to be beneficial. All data is further synthesized for clear communication back to the referral source ensuring all service lines in the patient’s continuum of care are working in unison.

NEXT STEPS

After each patient’s initial consult and implementation or completion of any conservative recommendations or injections, we will review the outcomes of those treatments. We will then determine the next steps and continue ongoing management and support of their chronic pain needs.

CONTINUOUS SUPPORT

Our goal is to improve the patients function and mobility by reducing pain. Chronic pain is a complex disease process that requires long-term management. We value not only the initial approach and interventions implemented to treat their pain, but also the long-term therapeutic relationship built with patients that is necessary to ensure adequate acute and chronic treatment of their ongoing pain management needs.
