Hospital administration announced today that Leonid Dabuzhsky, MD will join the emerging Center for Orthopedics & Joint Replacement at Carney Hospital.
“I am thrilled to have Dr. Dabuzhsky join us here at Carney” said Walter Ramos, Carney Hospital President. “To have a physician of such quality as a part of our team cements Carney’s orthopedics program as one of the best in the region. Our patients have access to top orthopedic surgeons, conveniently located right in their community.”
With the addition of Dr. Dabuzhsky, Carney’s patients now have exclusive access to OMNIBotics, an advanced robotic-assisted treatment option for total knee replacement. The OMNIBotics procedure utilizes advanced software and instrumentation to tailor each procedure to the patient’s unique anatomy in order to optimize implant fit and alignment. The surgeon maintains control and decision-making regarding the total knee replacement while providing a customized, patient-specific surgery. OMNIBotics also allows for a less invasive surgical technique, compared to traditional knee replacement surgery, which may promote a quicker recovery. Carney Hospital is alone in the region to offer the OMNIBotics robotic-assisted total knee replacement procedure to its patients.
“I was drawn to Carney Hospital because of their patient-first approach with everything they do”, said Dr. Dabuzhsky. “From the moment they step onto campus, the team here is committed to ensuring that not only does every patient receive high-quality care, but that that care is delivered with compassion and respect. I could not be more proud then to align myself with Carney Hospital in their mission to serve the community.”
Dr. Dabuzhsky received his medical degree from Russian State Medical University and has been in practice for more than 30 years, including previously practicing at Carney Hospital among other institutions in the region.
