Dr. Garabekyan is one of the best doctors I have seen. He is incredibly knowledgeable, professional, and kind. Three years ago another orthopedist diagnosed me with bi-lateral hip dysplasia and offered me no remedies to ease my pain and discomfort nor outlined a plan for me. This happened with two other doctors and I felt frustrated.
The pain had recently gotten so bad that I went and saw Dr. Garabekyan. I brought my images and after reviewing them he explained in a very detailed manner what was going on with my hips, why I am having the pain I am having and identify exactly where the discomfit and pain was.
He gave me three options to explore now to minimize my pain and discomfort in the time between now and either a hip replacement surgery or PAO surgery. I am now finally on the right path to managing my pain and feeling like I have a doctor who understands and cares about what is going on.

Late 2017 I was diagnosed with Avascular Necrosis (AVN) in my right hip and an arthroscopic surgery was needed. Finding Dr. Garabekyan was a blessing at such a depressing time where it was affecting every part of my life. He is not only an expert on everything hip related, but his approach with his patients is always calm, clear, and with great care. I went into the surgery with a peace of mind, largely due to the demeanor/expertise/personableness of Dr. Garabekyan.
He performed my hip arthroscopy in early January and it was done without a perineal post, enabling him to carry out simultaneous bilateral hip arthroscopy. This is an innovative method of performing the procedure that not a lot of surgeons use yet. This minimized my recovery time/complications I may have had. Eight months later, I played my first competitive basketball game, marking a huge milestone in my recovery, something unimaginable this time last year.
The relationship I have with Dr. Garabekyan did not end after the surgery. He has guided me every step of the way throughout the recovery process. He provided a well written packet catered specifically to me. It included screenshots of the arthroscopic images (with thorough explanations of each image), along with exercises and do’s/don’ts for each week of recovery. He has been a text message away for any questions I have had and has been very supportive and genuinely interested in the well being of my hip.

Dr. Garabekyan is truly an amazing doctor. He knows how to make you feel welcome in his office, how to keep you calm as you are about to go through a procedure – big or small. He even followed up with me over email and it was greatly appreciated as it showed me cared. He’s a great knee doctor and I’m glad I came to him for my knee pain.

Dr. Garabekyan is the best Orthopedic Surgeon in Southern California. I won’t repeat what everyone says here on his interest in his patients as well as the BEST bedside manner I have ever had the privilege of encountering.
If you get referred to Dr. Garabekyan you will be beyond pleased. Just follow what he asks and give it your all, and he will give you 110% in return. I was ashamed to have to have bi lateral hip surgeries at first, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Dr. Garabekyan honestly gave me my quality of life back, and I will be forever thankful.

This Doctor is a stud. Smart guy who makes you feel comfortable and know you are in good hands. My first time going to an orthopedic Surgeon for a hip impingement and was impressed with how smoothly everything went.
I still have many follow up visits and possibly surgery in my near future so will update my review then.

Dr. G is amazing! He took time to listen to my concerns and was always available to answer questions before and after my procedure. Hands down one of the best doctors I’ve ever known!

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Garabekyan. Beyond his expertise in orthopedics is a bedside manner and personality second to none. I’ve had to see more surgeons and specialists in my life than most I’d hazard to guess and Dr. G is definitely a new generation of approachable and informative doctors, besides being one heck of a surgeon.
I’ve undergone two hip surgeries with Dr. G, first referred to him by another orthopedic surgeon because of his reputation as a preservationist. He really does focus on everything that can be done to save or extend the life of your natural hip before jumping straight to replacement.
I am very happy with the results of my hip replacement. Everything went as planned and my recovery has been going quite well. Dr. Garabekyan has given me my mobility back and the opportunity to get more active and back into better shape.

Dr. Garabekyan, is in a league of his own! He is so kind, knowledgeable, patient, ALWAYS available, and his hip surgeries (in my experience) are executed fantastically.
I went to the surgery center in the valley. Dr. Garabekyan’s surgery team was all so nice and professional. Dr. G, met with my husband and I before the surgery and explained the procedure again. He was so nice and thorough, answering any last minute questions we had. Before I knew it the surgery was over and I was on my way home.
Dr. Garabekyan is a life saver! Seriously! I’m still young and I love to be active. Now my hip won’t hold me back, and I’ll be able to do all of the sports and activities I want to do, again.
I’m so happy with my results and I hope that if anyone reads this, and is considering any kind of surgery for their hip, that they go to Dr. Garabekyan. He cares so much, does such great work, that produces (in my case) great results! Thanks Dr. G.

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Garabekyan. The world is lucky to have this guy as a surgeon.
Recommending Dr. Garabekyan is not even a question–trust me, at this point, my entire extended family, all of my co-workers, and my friends know his name and the level of individualized care he’s shown through this gift he’s given me.
I cried when I first read–on the PAO page of the SoCal Hip Institute website–“We look forward to helping you get your life back.” And now it’s happening. Right now, to me, as I’m recovering and finding JOY in how my body is working, because of him. This is a life-changing gift that he’s giving.

Dr Garabekyan performed excellent hip replacement surgery at Cedars Sinai hospital 05/01/2018. My mom for over 3 years was choosing the “right” Dr and only when she met/consulted Dr Garabekyan she was comfortable and confident to pursue with surgery.
Doctor visited my mom every single day at the hospital and insured she is healing and being taken care off. He is very knowledgeable, professional and pays very close attention to details. I highly recommend Dr Garabekyan.

I am a 48 year old male police sergeant whose body has been through sports injuries, weightlifting injuries, work incidents, and the beating that comes with raising three athletes. With that being said, in June of this year I tore my rotator cuff and damaged the labrum of my right shoulder while helping carry a piece of furniture. My health insurance company gave me the option of two different surgeons to choose from. I decided to meet with both of them to help me make an educated choice on which doctor to go with.
Of course I immediately checked Yelp and found some excellent reviews for Dr. Garabekyan. I made an appointment which was easy and was scheduled within two weeks. Kerry and the other staff was very helpful in providing me a list of the things I would need to bring from my primary care physician, which I did.
The surgery was a success. Dr. Garabekyan said it looked as though an explosion had occurred in my shoulder. I had a severe full length tear in one of the tendons in my rotator cuff as well as some fraying to the other and some damage to the labrum. As I expected, he said much of the damage appeared to be from previous shoulder injuries which made sense due my lifestyle.
All of the damage was repaired through three half inch arthroscopic cuts in my shoulder which were painless and quick healing.
