Date:11/9/2009

Partnership to bring next generation of sports medicine to U.S. Olympic and Paralympic athletes.

Colorado Springs, CO and Marina del Rey, CA (PRWEB) November 9, 2009 -- The United States Olympic Committee (USOC) and D.I.S.C. Sports and Spine Center today officially announced a strategic partnership in which D.I.S.C. will become an Official Medical Services Provider through the 2012 Olympic Games. With this agreement D.I.S.C. will collaborate with the USOC sports medicine team to develop and implement a comprehensive sports medicine program with unmatched continuity of care to meet the medical needs of America’s greatest athletes.

“The addition of D.I.S.C. to the USOC’s sports medicine program is significant as we strive to provide first class, consistent medical care to America’s Olympic and Paralympic athletes and hopefuls,” said USOC Acting CEO Stephanie Streeter. “With D.I.S.C. as Team USA’s partner, we will be able to provide world class surgical care as well as state of the art rehabilitation and preventive care services to keep athletes in the best condition possible to compete at the highest levels. The USOC is proud to partner with D.I.S.C. and looks forward to a long relationship.”

Athletes will have unprecedented access to a wide-array of distinguished sports medicine specialists at D.I.S.C. who can provide comprehensive outpatient care in a wide range of fields, including spine and orthopedic surgery, chiropractic care, acupuncture, performance psychology, nutrition, and rehabilitation.

Under this partnership, D.I.S.C. will administer USOC medical records and streamline medical care. This enables the athlete, the physicians and USOC medical personnel to easily track and follow, in real time, the care of the athlete from any location in the world. This innovative program will improve the standard of care by providing easy access to medical history, treatment plans and performance data in order to ensure comprehensive care and communication.

“We are honored that the USOC has entered into this partnership with D.I.S.C. Sports and Spine Center as we embark on this progressive endeavor,” said Dr. Robert S. Bray, Jr., DISC CEO and Founding Director. “Our philosophy at D.I.S.C. has always been to set a higher standard of medical care for our patients and we are committed to bringing this approach to the Olympic family. American athletes deserve every chance to go for the gold and we intend to do everything in our power to help them live their dreams.”
