Yankton Medical Clinic patients who see Reissig can expect that passion and her personal philosophy to come through at every visit. “I am dedicated to discovering the underlying diagnosis for the pain the patient is experiencing,” she explains. “I will exhaust all nonoperative measures available before indicating a patient for a surgical procedure.”
Reissig explains why she chose the foot and ankle specialty: “It’s one of the only specialties in orthopedics that incorporates all the different procedures–sports procedures, joint replacements, fusion surgery. It is incredibly gratifying to help people get back to doing activities they love!”
Her hobbies of CrossFit, hiking, horseback riding, cooking and yoga occupy her time outside the clinic. She’s participated in the CrossFit Open, a worldwide competition, every year since getting involved in CrossFit. “I’m certainly not anywhere near the top, but it is always a lot of fun. Last year I did it eight weeks pregnant and this year I did it five months postpartum!” she says.
Reissig, born in Germany, grew up in a bilingual household. “My mom, sister and I only speak German to each other,” she explains. “Now my sister and I are both exclusively speaking German to our children as well.”
Scuba diving is another passion of hers, and she was certified by her sister, a former scuba diving instructor, who lives in Grand Cayman. “It’s a great activity that we get to do together. Being under the water is like seeing a completely different world,” she says.
