This is my second hip replacement surgery. I would not recommend my former surgeon, nor the lateral incision procedure that was done for my first right hip joint replacement in Feb. 2013. The number of precautions involved, the amount of post surgery pain, and the length of recovery were far more debilitating than the anterior approach used by Dr. Kulidjian. I am very pleased with the outcomes I have achieved with Dr. K's approach.

I still remember our first meeting. She shook my hand, introduced herself and told me I was a very tough man walking on a hip so badly damaged. But the confidence she had that she could, in my words; make me whole again. And she did just that. No more pain and my healing was phenomenal. Went from walker to cain to nothing in less than 4 months. My right hip now needs replacement and I will do all that I can to have her do it if she will.

Dr. Kulidjian is a brilliant, talented surgeon! I had my right hip replaced in March, and I was surprised how quickly I recovered. If you want an exemplary surgeon, look no further.

I had right hip replacement with the very innovative and progressive direct anterior approach. Dr. Kulidjian is a precision surgeon-cutting edge in the hip replacement industry. She made sure the scar was not only small but also follows my bikini line and I had absolutely. I pain following the surgery. Within 3 weeks I was back at work walking with a cane. Within 4 weeks I was driving and i have Absolutely no limp. She is a true, caring professional. I love her eagerness to please her patient and make sure he/she is actively moving within the first day of surgery. I wholeheartedly recommend her!

I'm thoroughly satisfied with my total hip replacement by Dr. Kulidjian and her team of specialists. I'm 78 years old and I was able to get back on the exercise bike and stair climber one month following the surgery. I voluntarily left the hospital four hours after the surgery and I required less than the recommended dose of over the counter pain medications. Dr. Kulidjian made the experience as pleasant as possible.

She is an awesome surgeon. Dr. K is exhaustive with pre-surgery tests, and it is great to know that she has exactly the information needed to ensure the best outcome. I was up and out of the hospital after an overnight. She surrounds herself with a great team and they get it done like clockwork. Great experience.

I just had hip replacement surgery in October and found Dr. Kulidjian to be a superior surgeon. I look forward to being ready for her to replace my other hip in a few months. She is very matter of fact, while still being compassionate and reassuring. I even had to reschedule this hip replacement for a couple of months because of another surgery that I needed prior to this one. Her staff, especially Isabel, have also been extremely accommodating and pleasant. I highly recommend Dr. Kaludjian

Fighting prostate cancer, I have had zero testosterone levels for 15 years. My bones are a mess. Had 6 fractures in my hips. Went thru 5 doctors at a different Hospital/medical group before it was suggested I go to UCSD & Dr. Kulidjian. She performed both of my hip replacement surgeries. She is the best! I highly recommend Dr. Kulidjian.

Dr. Kulidjian performed my total hip replacement surgery and I am very happy with the results. Two weeks after surgery I am pain-free and walking without assistance. My interactions with her have been brief, however she's always polite and straightforward. We even joked a little in the OR before surgery began. She performed the surgery, while her surgical resident and intern did the follow-up in the hospital. I recommend her.
