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. He’s a miracle worker!
I want to thank you and your staff for helping me to enjoy life again. I was in excruciating pain when I first saw. You told me that I would need a total hip replacement, explained the procedure, and had your staff help me make all the arrangements necessary before the procedure. I was very lucky as I did not suffer pain after surgery, as I had been told I would, and healed quite quickly. Your office staff was helpful and professional. My follow up visits with you were professional and friendly. I think you did an excellent job. Roberta A. Schwartz
After surgery ignores your concerns. Check your records after a visit. He does not do what is written down. 30 days after second knee done. I could not sit without strong pain from knee. I told him every visit the right knee does not like sitting. Was okay u till day 30 when I walked more. He did nothing checked nothing. Said was my back. His partner misdiagnosed the back. 18 months wasted. Now chronic pain and bone spurs on upper and lower knee caps. So not my back. Turns out bilateral anterior knee pain. He never once asked where the knee pain was. Got second opinion on back. Doctor checks everything, reads MRI. Finally says where is your pain. I said my knee he says where. I said must be my knee caps as I want to get a hammer and smash them. Back doctor says I am 90% sure it is not your back but your knees. Yep my knees. Now bone spurs on upper and lower knee caps both knees. Chronic pain meds have never worked. Not worth it better doctors.
I was referred to Shahan V. Yacoubian, M.D. by a friend after I had experienced an extremely bad left hip replacement surgery by another doctor. After meeting with Dr. Shahan Yacoubian, I had a right hip replacement surgery by him and he paid special attention to my specific issues as a result of the prior bad surgery experience with the other doctor, and this time I had an excellent experience and fast and easy recovery. His staff was always professional and made the experience a pleasure. I cannot say enough to recommend Dr. Yacoubian and his staff as well as St. Joseph Hospital in Burbank for their care and professionalism.
