William Bush, DPM

I would like to take this opportunity to tell you more about myself and my experience in healthcare. I am originally from Belvidere, Illinois and I attended Rockford College before continuing my studies at Dr. William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine, earning a doctor of podiatric medicine (D.P.M.) degree in 1984. Following my graduation, I pursued advanced podiatric surgical training as part of my internship and residency at Chicago Center Hospital. My practice is focused on surgical treatment of foot and ankle disorders, with a special interest in revision foot and ankle surgery. It is my mission to provide you excellent service, as well as compassionate care. I always strive to provide you with the same high-quality podiatric care that I would offer to a member of my family.

In addition to my extensive medical commitments, I enjoy reading, movies, art, and spending time with my family. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to further improve your experience at OrthoIllinois. My goal is to provide you the best medical care available.

I am looking forward to meeting you.
