MURRAY, Ky. (7/12/14) — Orthopedic surgeon Dr. John Yezerski is joining the office of Charette, Morgan and Compton Orthopaedics to form Murray Orthopaedics.

The four doctors of Murray Orthopaedics, Dr. Ray Charette, Dr. Stephen Compton, Dr. Derek Morgan and now Yezerski, represent nearly 75 years of experience across a multitude of orthopaedic services such as hip replacement, knee replacement, carpal tunnel, reverse total shoulder, sports medicine and arthroscopic procedures.

“We’re glad to have Dr. Yezerski join us as we form Murray Orthopaedics,” said Jerry Penner, MCCH CEO. “This brings four of the area’s brightest and skilled orthopedic surgeons together under one roof to serve our community. They all live right here in Murray and work every day right here in Murray.”

Yezerski has more than 27 years of orthopaedic experience and has worked in the Murray area since 1987 including two stints as Chief of Surgery and one as Chief of Staff on the MCCH Medical Staff. A graduate of Baldwin-Wallace College in Berea, Ohio in 1973, he went on to Baylor University in Waco, Texas for a Master of Physical Therapy degree. He served in Active Duty in the U.S. Army as an Assistant Chief of Physical Therapy for five years and was a member of the U.S. Army Reserve for 13 years before receiving an honorable discharge in 1991. After graduating from medical school at the University of Louisville in 1982, he completed an internship in Orthopaedic Surgery at the Albert B. Chandler Medical Center at the University of Kentucky. He also completed his residency in Orthopaedic Surgery there, where he was named Chief Resident in 1986-1987. Yezerski also was a Christine Kleinert Fellow in Hand Surgery at the University of Louisville in 1986.

Charette has more than 37 years of orthopaedic experience and previously worked at MCCH from 1980 to 2004, which included four years as Chief of Surgery. In 2011, Charette returned to MCCH. He is a board certified and fellowship trained orthopaedic surgeon and a fellow in Total Joint Replacement and a member of the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons. Charette graduated Magna cum Laude and completed his medical degree from the University of Ottowa in 1974, followed by a residency in General Orthopaedics at the University of Ottowa Faculty of Health Sciences at Montreal General Hospital. He also completed a Total Joint Replacement fellowship at Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Morgan has worked in the orthopedic field in Murray since 2008, and is a board certified and fellowship trained surgeon. He graduated from Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas and earned his medical degree at the University of Arkansas for Medical Services. He then completed a residency program in orthopaedics at the University of Kansas School of Medicine where he was awarded Resident Teacher of the Year. He then completed a pediatric rotation at the Shriners Hospital for Children in St. Louis and a fellowship in Adult Hip and Knee Reconstruction at Stanford University.

Compton graduated from Murray High School prior to graduating Murray State University Summa Cum Laude with a degree in Biology. He continued his education at the University of Louisville School of Medicine where he graduated Summa Cum Laude and received his medical degree. Prior to coming to Murray, he completed his orthopaedic surgery residency program at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City, Iowa (one of the top orthopaedic surgical programs in the United States).

Murray Orthopaedics is located in the MCCH Medical Arts Building at 300 South 8th Street, 284 West Wing. To make an appointment with Charette, Morgan or Compton, call (270) 761-5756. For Yezerski, call (270) 759-1444.
