Grand County will still have services of urology team

Two trusted specialty urological surgeons who have served Grand County for years are winding down their individual careers but their established practice will thrive thanks to the commitment to continued, quality health care by well-known partner Dr. Stacy Childs and new partner Dr. Jamie VanOveren.

Drs. Lyman Brothers and James Haden will be retiring from their home-based practice in Steamboat as well as their outreach clinic to Kremmling Memorial Hospital Specialty Clinic in order to spend more time enjoying their families and the activities available in northwest Colorado. Both plan to remain in the community and, for a limited time, continue to assist the practice as needed during the transition.

Drs. Brothers and Haden have established a reputable practice that took roots first as a satellite clinic in northwest Colorado in 1980.

“Now, in 2008, the practice is a state of the art facility, in conjunction with Yampa Valley Medical Center, that provides top of the line urologic care,” says Dr. Brothers.

Drs. Brothers and Haden have also provided services at Kremmling Memorial Hospital for years that include consultations for urinary tract infections, kidney stones, impotence and infertility issues as well as surgical consultation for various procedures including prostate surgery. They also offer the diagnostic cystoscopy procedure at Kremmling Memorial. Ancillary services such as laboratory and radiology, located next door at the hospital, are an added convenience for both physician and patient, allowing for fast results and thorough evaluation.

Drs. Stacy Childs, (voted to America’s Top Doctors for four consecutive years and to Best Doctors since 2007), and Jamie VanOveren are dedicated to continuing the same services at Kremmling Memorial with the full confidence of their retiring colleagues.

“I have entrusted the future care of my patients to Dr. Stacy Childs and Dr. Jamie VanOveren,” Dr. Brothers said, adding, “I have the utmost confidence that patients will continue to enjoy outstanding care.”

Dr. VanOveren, who has multiple research awards in the area of urology, both from the American College of Osteopathic Surgeons as well as from the Michigan Osteopathic Association, is pleased to be moving to the area with fiancee, Angela.

They look forward to enjoying outdoor activities.

“My goal is to treat the whole person with a focus on their urologic needs and quality of life,” Dr. VanOveren said.

“I welcome all patients and I look forward to providing urologic services to the community,” he said.

“I am looking to continue the excellent health care that has been provided in the area and continue to expand with new techniques and technology to further benefit my patients,” he concluded.

Dr. VanOveren and Dr. Childs rotate monthly visits at the specialty clinic at Kremmling Memorial. Appointments can be made by calling 724-3115.
