Dr. Anna Kulidjian, MD
Anna A. Kulidjian, MD, is an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in adult joint reconstruction and musculoskeletal oncology. As a member of the orthopedic oncology team at Moores Cancer Center, she surgically removes bone tumors as well as tumors found in soft tissues including muscle, fascia, fat, and skin. She is skilled at restoring injured limbs through complex reconstructions and limb salvage techniques. Dr. Kulidjian also performs primary and complicated revision knee and hip replacements using advanced technologies and minimally invasive techniques. Her research interests include understanding the mechanisms of sarcoma metastasis and the role of stem cells in the initiation and maintenance of the disease. In the laboratory, she works to find novel therapies to treat sarcoma. Dr. Kulidjian earned her medical degree and completed residency training at University of Toronto in Ontario, Canada.

Bringing the advances we enjoy in the developed world to those less fortunate is a passion of Dr. Kulidjian's. She is working to set up trauma care in a remote area in Kenya at the base of Mt. Kilamanjaro. Through the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust, Dr. Kulidjian has organized a charity hike up Mt.

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.
