- Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine
An osteopath is a physician who is trained in the philosophy of osteopathic medicine. These doctors have a D.O. degree which stands for Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, as opposed to M.D. for Medical Doctor.
Osteopathic medicine differs from conventional medicine, which is sometimes referred to as allopathic medicine, in that they incorporate a type of manual therapy called Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM) into their treatment in which they manipulate the spine in order to relieve pain when other methods have not been successful. This is reflective of the philosophical difference between the two types of physicians; osteopaths are trained to treat the body as a whole in the belief that the body is structured with the ability to heal itself while medical doctors treat specific illnesses or symptoms.
Overall, osteopaths and medical doctors in the US are both equally qualified to treat patients and they work in the same settings and provide the same treatments.
- Plastic Surgery
A plastic surgery specialist is a physician with extensive training in the execution of plastic surgery procedures.
Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts. Congenital defects, such as a cleft lip or palate, can be corrected by a plastic surgery specialist. Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.
The other category of plastic surgery is cosmetic plastic surgery. Plastic surgery specialists often perform procedures like breast augmentation, face lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and lip injection as elective surgeries for patients who wish to make aesthetic improvements.

Dr. Stephen Colen is a gifted surgeon with an artistic eye for enhancing the unique beauty in each client. I'm so pleased with my facelift and brachioplasty which has restored the glow of the refreshed and revitalized appearance I had 20 years ago. Not only is Dr. Colen an artist and top surgeon but he is also very kind and attentive- always responsive to my questions. His expert and pleasant staff helped me to feel supported and informed during the entire process. I'm so thrilled and excited that I gave myself this wonderful gift and am so pleased to highly recommend Dr. Stephen Colen and share this treasure with others.
Dr Stephen Colen is by far the best plastic surgeon I have ever been to. I have consulted with many. I have had every problem with my breast impants that you could have. Capsular contractions, symnastia, scar issues only to name a few. After multiple surgeries it is very difficult to find a doctor that is confident and has enough experience to take on the task of caring for a patient with breast that have been operated on so many times.I had a severe case of symnastia from a Dr. that put implants in my chest that were way to large. No Plastic Surgeon even wanted to touch me after seeing my problem. I was referred to Dr. Stephen Colen by one of the top plastic surgeons in NYC. He told me that Dr Colen was the best breast reconstruction Surgeon that there is and that if anyone would be able to help me that he would. He was right. Dr. Colen was honest when he explained that it was a difficult problem to fix and explained that one surgery might not fix the problem 100%. He was wrong. He resolved the problem completely in one surgery.About two years later I noticed that my one breast had a "dent" under the nipple. I was distraught. It made my breast look completely deformed. I thought it would be something I would have to live with forever. I went to see Dr. Colen and he told me that it was scar that had attached to the muscle and was pulling in the aureola. Once again he made me feel like he could take care of it for me. He has a way about him that he makes you know that he will always do his best and be honest about the outcome.I had the procedure today and could not be happier, he did all he promised and best of all my dent is gone!!! He is so experienced and such a good surgeon that a procedure that would be very complex to another surgeon is simple to him. I truly don't know what I would do if I hadn't found him. Anyone that reads negative feedback on Dr Colen should really completely disregard it. I could never imagine any of it being true and I mean that. If you don't choose Dr. Colen you will regret it and land up having to go to him in the future with a worse problem then you started with. I am so grateful to have found him. There is no need to shop around for a surgeon, don't waste your time. Dr Colen is the best.
Procedure performed: Mini-abdominoplasty, nipple reduction, and breast Augmentation all at the same time. Dr. S. Colen is a complete star, an artist and a professional through and through. Would recommend him highly. I researched Drs for a long time, went to numerous consults with various recommended practices, and hands-down felt he was the most competent, and guess what the research paid off; as the results are outstanding.
