PRESS RELEASE: Wellness Forum: “Flat Tires: Treatment of Lower Extremity Wounds” Dr. Dekker McKeever, DMP will present a free WOW! Working on Wellness Forum on Wednesday November 14th at 2:30 pm at Trinity United Methodist Church, 100 South Blake Avenue, in Sequim. Seating is limited so please arrive early.


This presentation will focus on foot wounds, why and how they happen, and what can be done to help. Dr. McKeever is often conservative in his diagnosis, seeking non-surgical approaches to healing and rehabilitation. However, when surgery is indicated, he is experienced in the most advanced contemporary technologies for wound care, ankle, Achilles tendon, rear foot and forefoot reconstruction, and total replacement.


Dekker McKeever was drawn to foot and ankle surgery when he injured his foot and suffered Jones fractures, surgical repair, and arduous rehabilitation. He developed tremendous respect for his podiatrist and determined then to pursue podiatric surgery as a DMP.
