Michael J. Sailer, MD, is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon. His specialty area is sports medicine, with a focus on shoulder and knee surgery—both arthroscopic and joint replacement. Dr. Sailer’s patients range from “weekend warriors” to high-level athletes.

Dr. Sailer is a native Seattleite, attending Whitman College for his Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry and Biology and graduating with Honors from the University of Washington Medical School. He completed his Sports Medicine fellowship at the Steadman-Hawkins Clinic in Vail, Colorado after a year on the orthopedic faculty at the University of Washington, before joining Proliance in 1994.

He and his wife have three children. They enjoy snow skiing, water sports, biking, and are involved in their kids’ sports teams and activities. Dr. Sailer is the team physician for the Skyline High School Spartan football team, providing care since 1997.

Dr. Sailer’s philosophy of care is simple. Take good care of people and treat them like you would a family member. He listens to the patient, puts them at ease, and thoroughly explains their condition so they can make an informed decision about their care.
