POA Welcomes Dr. Haloman

We are very excited to announce that we have a new orthopedic surgeon joining the Proliance Orthopedic Associates team in June – Dr. Haloman! Dr. Haloman is a talented fellowship-trained specialist in hip preservation, sports medicine and arthroscopic/minimally-invasive surgery of the shoulder, hip, elbow and knee. He also performs surgery for general orthopedic conditions and trauma. Read on for a more in-depth look at the education, experience and personality of our newest POA team member.

Dr. Haloman understands the impact and devastation that injuries and pain have on all aspects of life. Therefore, he works together with his patients to create evidence-based treatment plans that suit the goals and needs of each patient. He strives to ensure that his patients not only return to their previous performance or activity level but are also less likely to be reinjured.

As a magna cum laude graduate of the University of Wyoming, Dr. Haloman brings plenty of knowledge and reputable experience to POA. He earned his medical degree from the University of California San Diego School of Medicine and was the recipient of the Merck Award for Outstanding Academic Accomplishments. Dr. Haloman completed his residency in Orthopedic Surgery at the University of Washington, where he received the Victor Frankel Research Award. He then completed a sports medicine and arthroscopic surgery fellowship at the Southern California Orthopedic Institute, learning advanced arthroscopic techniques for the treatment of the hip, shoulder, elbow, knee and ankle. Dr. Haloman also had the opportunity to help care for high school, college, NBA NFL and MLB athletes. Later, he traveled to Switzerland to complete an additional fellowship in hip preservation with world-renowned experts and the originators of the field.

Dr. Haloman has a personal interest in injuries of the hip and shoulder, minimally invasive arthroscopic surgical techniques, and hip preservation (the treatment of hip impingement and dysplasia to reduce the risk of hip arthritis). He believes in an individual-based approach to medicine and that restoring normal anatomy after injury is only a small part of keeping his patients active and healthy.

When he’s not helping our patients get back to their active, healthy lifestyles, Dr. Haloman can be found exploring Seattle and the Pacific Northwest with his wife and children, traveling, playing sports, exercising, reading and listening to podcasts. Please join us in welcoming Dr. Haloman to our team of orthopedic doctors!

At Proliance Orthopedic Associates, we are committed to quality care, specializing in total hip replacement, ACL reconstruction and more. For more information about our services or our orthopedic surgeons in Seattle area and beyond, contact our orthopedic clinic today!
