Overview

Paul Haeder (“Hay-der”), MD, is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon with fellowship training in sports medicine. He joins Proliance Pacific Rim Orthopaedic Surgeons after practicing in North Lake Tahoe, California, where he gained extensive experience treating professional, Olympic, elite, and recreational athletes in a wide range of outdoor sports.

Dr. Haeder specializes in advanced arthroscopic techniques of the knee, hip, and shoulder aimed at getting athletes back to their pre-injured level of sports participation. He believes getting back to full activity is important for not only the elite, professional, and Olympic athletes, but also for the recreational athletes and weekend warriors.

In addition to his sports medicine surgery, Dr. Haeder also performs shoulder, knee, and anterior hip replacements to help the aging athlete after a lifetime of activity has taken its toll. He is also one of a few surgeons north of Seattle who treat hip labrum tears and who perform PRP injections.

Dr. Haeder moved to Whatcom County with his wife Amanda, who grew up in Ferndale, and his 3 children. When not at work, he enjoys exploring the outdoors with his family, playing soccer, skiing, CrossFit, hiking, and biking.
