- finger amputation
“My 92 year old father partially amputated two fingers using a table saw. The medics took him to a Pgh hospital (he just wanted to go Heritage Valley Beaver) where I can say we encountered nothing short of a debacle. My father just wanted the fingers completely amputated and stitched up. They refused, bandaged him and said he have to see the doctor in his office the next day. After a grueling night and what would have probably turned into many trips back and forth to Pgh, I called Dr. Yakish's office and he took us immediately. He looked at the fingers, x-rayed them and made the sound decision to amputate just as my dad had wanted. He went in the next morning through out patient surgery and under a local, Dr. Yakish did the procedure. It took less than an hour and a half from the time we entered the hospital to the time we exited. Thank you Dr. Yakish for saving my dad from an unnecessary surgery and many anxiety inducing trips back and forth to Pittsburgh. You are the BEST!”
