For patients with foot or ankle issues, Morrison Community Hospital is proud to offer the services of its new Podiatrist, Dr. David A. Yeager. Dr. Yeager is treating patients in MCH’s Family Care Clinic from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm every weekday.
Dr. Yeager is Board Certified in Foot and Ankle Reconstruction by the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery. He has performed over five thousand surgeries to date, and has lectured in the U.S. and abroad on Wound Care and Surgical Procedures. Dr. Yeager is one of only a few surgeons who performs total ankle implants. He specializes in Wound Care, and heals wounds that other facilities have decided are too difficult to treat.
“I enjoy taking on difficult cases where I can use my skills to help my patients walk pain-free,” said Dr. Yeager. “I believe in a team approach to medicine; without key players on our health care team working together, there’s no way a patient can achieve a healthier lifestyle.”
Dr. Yeager has served as President of the Illinois Podiatric Medical Association, and sat on the Board of the American Podiatric Medical Association. He served as Chair of the United Way in Lee County, and for ten years has been volunteering his time for the Elks’ Crippled Children Clinic.
“Serving the people of Whiteside, Lee, and Ogle counties has always been a passion of mine,” said Dr. Yeager. “The most rewarding experience a podiatric surgeon can achieve is seeing his patients walk without pain.”
Dr. Yeager is excited about the opportunity to work with Morrison Community Hospital, and looks forward to the challenges of his new environment. “I welcome new patients with same-day appointments,” he said. “Patients are the heart and soul of our clinic. Without a solid bond between physician and patient, good health is difficult to attain.” To make an appointment with Dr. Yeager, please call (815) 772-5511.
