Our own Dr. Tyler Nathe, sports medicine specialist, served his sixth year as a medical pool physician for the US Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA). Dr. Nathe was proud to assist at the X Games Aspen providing medical coverage and emergency orthopedic care for the athletes on the US Ski and Snowboard Team in this major event prior to the Olympics. Pool physicians complete USSA training courses and then volunteer to provide medical coverage to athletes and support at events around the world. They serve as the primary resource to coaches and trainers, provide emergency care and oversee medical issues relating to an athlete’s ability to train and compete at these events. Proliance Orthopaedics and Sports congratulates all the athletes selected to represent the United States in Korea and wishes them a successful 2018 Winter Olympics!

Dr. Nathe: “As an avid skier myself, it inspires me to watch these athletes compete. It is my pleasure to support them as they pursue the highest levels of this sport.”
