Bi-lateral Total Knee Replacements Dr. Shahan Yacoubian replaced both my knees in two separate operations, about five months apart. Best decision I ever made. Unbearable pain eliminated 100 percent. Without the replacements I would be in a wheelchair now instead of enjoying all my normal activities, including Pilates. Okay, I did give up yoga but I already lost it when I could no longer kneel without agony. I will tell you the rehab is crucial but it doesn't remotely compare in difficulty or pain with what I was dealing with before. And I tried every alternative out there before resorting to surgery. My only regret is waiting so many years for the real fix. Now it's been five years and I still feel great. Even the scars are minimal now. You can't do better than Dr. Y for expert explanations, talent as a surgeon, bedside manner and follow-up care. I know it's scary, but it is SO worth it. Go get your life back!

Dr. Yacoubian performed hip replacement surgery for my 101 year old mother, who lives with us and is very sharp. He did a wonderful job and she was in the hospital for 1 week after surgery, then was able to return home with us where she had a few Home Health Physical Therapy visits and one Home Health Occupational Therapy visit. She has totally recovered to baseline status, and we are so appreciative of Dr. Yacoubian's surgical skills and his caring bedside manner. We cannot say enough about how grateful we are! LH

I was recommended to Dr. Shahan Yacoubian for knee replacement. His staff was helpful in guiding me through the process and in early December, Dr. Yacoubian replaced both my knees. I have had a remarkable recovery and I attribute that to skilled surgeon, Dr. Yacoubian. 2 1/2 months out and I am driving, walking and getting around great. I am sure this all started with my surgery, and Dr. Yacoubian. I am looking towards a new life with my good knees. Thank you. Dr. Yacoubian.

Had a severe fracture of the tibia, so severe that it required two operations, one to install an external fixator and a second to set the bone (closed reduction), which required 6 screws and a 12” steel plate. Dr. Yacoubian saw me on short notice and performed both surgeries perfectly. He and his wonderful staff helped me through a long and difficult recovery time. I’m now back on my feet again and operating at 100%. If you’re ever in need of an orthopedic surgeon, see Dr. Yacoubian first.

I have known Dr. Shahan Yacoubian for the last 11 Years. We worked together at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center. He is one of the most skilled and compassionate Surgeon’s I know. I went to him for my own medical reason’s about 3 years ago for arthritis in my left hip. 1st he did shots, and that relieved the pain for a long time. Then the pain intensified to the point that I needed a total hip replacement. It has been 4 weeks post op and I’m now walking without a cane. Yeah for the Dr

I am extremely satisfied with the services I received from Dr. Yacoubian and his staff for my TKR surgery in September 2016. From the moment it was decided to move forward with the surgery, I received the information I needed when I needed it. The staff did the leg work to set everything up and told me where to go and when. The surgery and recovery was great. The first two weeks a nurse and a Physical Therapist visited me at home, no problems. Later, the physical therapy I received was top notch
