This was my 2nd hip replacement. Went with Dr. Yerger this time because my son had such a great experience with his hip surgery with Dr. Yerger . It was truly amazing the difference in the two surgeries. Hospital stay was also the best among the 5 surgery’s that I have had in past.

Yes , I already have been recommending Dr. Yerger to family and friends. After looking at two bad bull legs for 71 years and now they are straight as a arrow. The right knee was done 8/2019 and could not be happier with it. the left was done 7/6/2021 and is work in progress, but I am sure it will be as good as the right.

Absolutely without a second thought. Dr Yeager is professional, courteous, and skillful. My outcome from total knee replacement has been extremely successful thus far. I am a 77 year old lady 3 weeks post op. The whole team (Jason, Annie,nurse practitioner,x-Ray techs, just everyone) have gone the “extra mile! I’m very thankful and appreciate. Thank you

Partial knee replacement- 2 weeks later, while still painful, I’m walking around on it and it feels much more stable than the original knee. It was an easy decision based on Dr.Yerger’s clear and comprehensive explanations of the case at hand. Pre-surgery care and Hospital care at Lafayette General Orthopedic Hospital was excellent.

I never thought I would have to beg for pain medicine after Hip Surgery. Tylenol? Before you let him cut on you. you will need to negotiate what he will be giving you after and when pain sets in . He maybe a great doctor? but one should care about the pain and suffering one must endure .

Dr. Yerger and his team are the best. I was a little nervous for my surgery but his team was very reassuring that everything was gonna be OK and that they would be there for me if I needed anything. I really like that they do the get well loop because it is very informative and shows they care about their patients. Thanks again for everything Dr. Yerger to you and your great team.

Dr. Yerger is very knowledgeable and is very informative on the diagnosis and the procedure required. I saw 3 other doctors for the same issue and his explanation of the methods, accuracy and results of his work made me feel very confident that a hip replacement was the right choice for me. Dr. Yerger, his staff and the staff of LG Orthopedic Hospital made me feel very comfortable throughout the entire process. I highly recommend Dr. Yerger and his team.

Dr Yerger and his staff are very good and professional. The hospital was lacking in proper care at times. Took 8 sticks to insert an iv. Sent me home with a low oxygen level, had to go to urgent care the day after leaving the hospital. Oxygen level was 93. Very difficult to breathe. Was prescribed steroids, etc. The hospital was aware of my difficulty breathing.
