(Annapolis, MD March 2021) In an exclusive update, the physicians at Regenerative Orthopedics & Sports Medicine confirmed that Dr. Jim Lynch had joined their team. The ROSM team reported that Dr. Lynch made the significant move after serving three decades in Army Medicine, where he cared for an exclusive Special Operations Community. The ROSM staff was enthusiastic that Dr. Lynch will bring to their team extensive experience supporting elite athletes in global competitions, including multiple World Championships and the Olympic Games. As a senior physician with the U.S Olympic and Paralympic Committee Dr. Lynch has supported USA Swimming as a National Team Physician for over ten years and was selected again to serve as Team Physician for USA Swimming at the Tokyo Olympic games this summer. Dr. Lynch has cared for some of this region’s most gifted athlete heroes like Katie Ledecky and Michael Phelps. This physician has dedicated his entire career to enhancing sustained optimal health and performance of Special Operations soldiers and elite athletes competing at the highest level of international sport and will now bring that same dedication to his patients in Annapolis.
Dr. Lynch’s clinical interests which include traumatic brain injury, posttraumatic stress disorder, regenerative injection therapies, and musculoskeletal ultrasound will supplement the expertise already found at ROSM. The team reported that he is a pioneer in the world of PTSD treatment through innovative use of stellate ganglion block (SGB) and will now partner up with the other key leader in SGB for PTSD, Dr. Sean Mulvaney also at ROSM Annapolis. They noted that SGB enhances standard mental health and medical treatments for posttraumatic stress disorder. They reiterated that the SGB procedure is best used together with psychotherapy, and the effects are lifesaving and accelerate benefits achieved in talk therapy. Dr. Jim Lynch strives to create more awareness about the value of SGB to the millions of Americans who have PTSD, their loved ones, and their healthcare providers.
The physicians said that Dr. Lynch earned a bachelor of science in Psychology from the United States Military Academy at West Point. He obtained his master of science in healthcare improvement from Dartmouth College and his medical degree from Brown Medical School.
