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.”

Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Your health is of upmost importance to us. Proliance Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine remains open at our Bellevue and Issaquah locations to serve the medical needs of our patients and community.

We wish to evaluate you as soon as possible. In an effort to do so, we are now offering virtual visits through a secure video-call application. Now, you can meet with your provider from the safety of your own home. Please call to schedule or speak to a staff member who can help answer questions and schedule an appointment (either virtually, or in person if necessary) as soon as possible.

We are prioritizing visits for the treatment of time sensitive conditions per recommendations from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the Washington State Department of Health. For the safety of you and other patients, we will be screening everyone before they enter one of our clinics. All providers and employees are also being screened twice daily at all of our locations, in compliance with the latest guidelines

To best protect our patients and staff, all providers you encounter during your visit will now be wearing personal protective equipment (PPE), such as masks.

We ask that you remain at home if you have a cough and/or fever or if you have been exposed to someone with these symptoms. Please contact your primary care provider immediately if you have any of these symptoms. We ask that adult patients who do not need assistance come into the clinic by themselves to limit visitors.
