NMO Dr Yaghoubian 2015Dr. Robert Yaghoubian is dedicated to restoring his patients' quality of life. As the region's leading specialist in orthopedic disorders of the upper extremity – from shoulder to elbow to hand, and all points in between – he helps patients regain their normal range of movement, as quickly and painlessly as possible.

With his surgical subspecialty training, Dr. Yaghoubian's expertise is comprehensive. He cares for the full range of upper extremity needs, extending from the shoulder's rotator cuff to the finger tips. His day-to-day practice includes sports related injuries and common usage conditions, as well as complex reconstructive and joint replacement surgeries.

Dr. Yaghoubian also offers advanced expertise in microsurgery for shoulder, elbow and hand. Microsurgery deals with the repair of small structures such as nerves and blood vessels.

Dr. Yaghoubian's philosophy of care is to be as non-invasive as each individual patient's condition allows. "We try to make sure we get patients back to their usual level of activity, work and hobbies, without any pain or discomfort, at the lowest possible level of intervention," he affirms. "In that sense, our approach is conservative. The patient's comfort and speed of recovery are always key factors."

In addition to Dr. Yaghoubian's conservative approach, patients are reassured by his extensive knowledge base. His practice offers the right mix of the latest, most innovative techniques combined with his 17 years experience in upper extremity care. He is a fellowship-trained specialist who holds diplomas from NYU School of Medicine, NYU Hospital for Joint Disease and University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.

As a member of New Milford Orthopedics, Dr. Yaghoubian works closely with other health professionals, caring for patients throughout northwest Connecticut, the Hudson Valley region and souuthern Berkshires. He works collaboratively with his patients' primary care doctors and even welcomes referrals from personal trainers who are observing mobility issues in their clients. As noted by healthcare providers at Nordicare Physical Therapy in Sharon, CT, "Dr. Yaghoubian's extremely professional and responsive approach to patient care is unique in the area. For over 15 years, we've seen his patients heal quickly, often ahead of schedule with excellent results."

Patients of all ages, from teenagers in school sports programs to adults with sports or common usage injuries, to geriatric patients with advanced wear-and-tear, can rely on Dr. Yaghoubian for the right solutions to musculoskeletal conditions of the shoulder, hand and upper extremity.

To my patients,

It is my my pleasure to introduce Peter Ackerman, PA-C, to my practice. Pete is a certified Physician Assistant who is now working with me full-time to provide the best care for you. Prior to becoming a PA, Pete had more than twelve years of experience as a certified athletic trainer and strength and conditioning specialist. His excellent training and experience, coupled with his professional and personable style, make him an exceptional addition to my team. During the years I have worked with Pete, he has demonstrated outstanding judgement in patient care and clinical prowess beyond his years of experience. Not only is Pete academically and technically outstanding, he is compassionate and understanding of patients' injuries and concerns.

Since joining Danbury Orthopedics in 2011, Pete has been trained in my style of orthopedic history taking, physical examination techniques, and the diagnosis and treatment of common injuries. He is qualified to perform injections in the office, provide routine fracture care, and assist with surgical procedures. He has been my First Assist with minimally invasive shoulder, knee and hip arthroscopies, complex fracture fixation, and all inside arthroscopic anatomical ACL reconstructions.

Pete will be seeing patients with me, and independently when I am out of the office. The true benefit of working with my own Physician Assistant is that he knows each patient and my approach to their care. We are in constant communication with each other, and he can reach me at any time. While I aim to always be here for you, I know you will feel comfortable with Pete when I am unavailable. Please join me in welcoming him to my practice.

Sincerely,

Dr. Angelo Ciminiello

DUNLEAVY-2-2015Total knee replacement surgery can be difficult for patients, often requiring a hospital stay and lengthy rehabilitation. Ongoing medical advances have made these procedures less invasive than in years past, but successful outcomes still require the patient to commit significant time and effort.

More recently, partial knee replacement has become a popular, less invasive option for select patients. Now, in its commitment to superlative care, Danbury Orthopedics is offering partial knee replacement at their newly opened outpatient Surgical Center – officially known as the Western Connecticut Orthopedic Surgical Center (WCOSC), located at 226 White Street, Danbury.

"This marks the first time that patients in the Danbury area do not have to go to a hospital to have this advanced procedure," says Dr. John Dunleavy, a Danbury Orthopedics surgeon and one of the region's leading total joint and knee specialists. "They can come to our new Surgical Center, have their partial knee procedure performed in a highly specialized orthopedic environment, go home the same day, and have all their follow-up care right here. They receive total patient care in total convenience."

Why Partial?

Patients whose knee deterioration is primarily isolated to one part of the joint may be candidates for a partial knee replacement. Because the partial procedure involves less tissue damage than a total replacement, recoveries are generally faster. Also, in part because no ligaments are removed, many patients say their post-surgical knee feels and functions more normally. These are some of the reasons why partial replacements are considered ideal for the select patients whose joint deterioration is at a contained stage.

Beyond Convenience

Of course, a patient's primary concern is quality of care, and here again Danbury Orthopedics offers many advantages, including a team of Fellowship-trained specialists with the highest credentials. As a dedicated orthopedic center, all surgeries are performed on an outpatient basis. "The process is extremely streamlined, and coordinated by a highly integrated team of specialists, including nurses and anesthesiologists skilled in orthopedics," says Dr. Dunleavy. "Because everything is geared towards outpatient, we function smoothly and can deliver a better patient experience than might be possible in a larger and more general institution."

In a culture where people are focused on living long and aging well, medical professionals envision a growing demand for joint replacement surgeries. With its state-of-the-art outpatient Surgical Center, Danbury Orthopedics is solidly positioned to serve the needs of the greater Connecticut area with compassion, expertise and convenience.
