My husband had knee replacement surgery with Dr Rubin. I Was blown away by the professionalism. He and his staff are top notch. Appointments are on time. He is efficient and clear in his communications. The surgery was an incredible success. I was surprised how quickly he was up and around at 69 without a cane or walker. Up and downstairs the day he came home. I would not recommend “Vera” the AI PT. It was useless and annoying. The fan ran 24/7 in our bedroom for weeks. No replacement for PT with a person. Other then that it was a great experience and despite Vera he is making great progress at a rapid rate to full recovery. Thank you Dr Rubin and your staff!

I had a total knee replacement by Dr Rubin at Yale New Haven hospital. I am now 6 weeks post surgery and have near complete recovery, and absence from joint pain for first time in years. I was walking without aids 2 weeks after surgery. Now, after extensive PT, have full range of motion and continue to be pain free. Dr Rubin and his wonderful staff made the process as easy as could be expected. I would highly recommend for anyone needing this procedure.

Dr. Rubin and his staff were straightforward from the first meeting as to the process for my partial knee replacement. I was told what to expect before, during and after the procedure. It was performed at the McGivney Advanced Surgery Center at St. Raphael's campus of Yale New Haven Hospital. I was at the center in the morning and home for dinner!! I would highly recommend Dr. Rubin for any type of joint replacement surgery!

Dr. Rubin, his team, and the staff at the St. Raphael's campus are all amazing! I had my right and left hips replaced in the past year or so, and the results are simply life altering! As a consequence of Dr Rubin's skill and technique, there were no restrictions after surgery, and I was back to my active lifestyle of cycling, dancing, etc. within a couple of weeks. Don't hesitate to have work done by this team, it wound the clock backwards, physically, ten years for me, and I'm so thankful!!!

Dr. Rubin is an excellent doctor. I also enjoyed his sense of humor and the fact that he regularly publishes. I had a THR in August and though patience is hard for me, I can honestly say my pain level is miniscule compared to the decade of pain I had before. I'm still recovering and trying not to overdo it but I can walk a mile, bike a mile and need no support. The incision is so small. He's amazing.

Dr. Rubin performed 2 partial knee surgeries on me this past year, the first in March and the other knee in October. He was a godsend. I am now pain free and back to bicycling, skiing and tennis. I had lived with pain for many years. I found Dr. Rubin to be very professional, knowledgable, and took time to listen and answer my concerns. He is up to date on techniques and rehab. I would definitely recommend him to family and friends.

I suffered from osteoarthritis of both knees as well as being severely bow-legged. Met Dr. Rubin and he worked within my schedule to repair both my knees. I couldn't be happier with the results. I could and have recomended Dr.Rubin to family and friends. Also, every member of his office and nursing staff went above and beyond my expectations. I believe my experience could not have been better.

I am so very fortunate to have found Dr. Rubin. Because I have many extenuating circumstances, Dr. Rubin did not agree to my knee replacement surgery until he took a month to do research and consult with colleagues about my case. When he finally agreed to the surgery, I had the utmost confidence that this was a viable option for me. Dr. Rubin is a compassionate individual who takes the time to answer all questions (and I had many), to listen to concerns, and to explain all aspects of the process

I suffered needlessly for several years over concerns of getting my hip replaced, potential problems and recovery time. Wow, did Dr. Rubin show me how unnecessary my years of pain was. The surgery was so easy. In recovery I could tell I was already feeling better. I was back to work in 4 weeks, and just over two months since the surgery, I am pain free and ecstatic that I can walk, sit, drive and sleep without pain. Thank you Dr.Rubin! BEST. SURGEON. EVER!
