Dr. Armen Khachatryan is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon specializing in minimally invasive microsurgery and the treatment of cervical and lumbar spinal disease. In addition to broad training in many traditional spinal surgical options — such as decompression laminectomies and fusion — Dr. Khachatryan has extensive experience in minimally invasive surgery, motion preservation technology, artificial disc replacement and non-fusion technologies. Dr Khachatryan has been a clinical investigator in a number of different FDA clinical trials, including a novel bioactive composite for vertebral fracture treatment and a pivotal FDA trial for Mobi-C cervical artificial disc replacement. After nearly six years of clinical trials, this device was approved by the FDA for clinical use in August 2013. Mobi-C is currently the only artificial disc replacement available in United States that has been approved by the FDA both for single and two level disc replacement surgery.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Khachatryan "Historically, most cervical surgeries result in fusion, which provides pain relief, but at a cost of loss of motion and higher risk of additional future surgeries. Recent clinical studies have shown that 4 years after cervical fusion, the risk of adjacent level degeneration is increased by nearly three-fold compared to disc replacement.

The Disc Replacement Center at Jordan Valley Medical Center offers an alternative—artificial disc replacement, which provides pain relief and preserves motion and function."

Learn how disc replacement improves range of motion."

Very poor experience with Dr. K. We waited several hours to see him. He was very unclear in regard to my pain and any possible treatment plan. Not very personable or empathetic. Appeared to minimized some very significant neck issues that I am having. A waste of my time.

My appointment with Dr. Khachaturian was not a good one. I waited over two and a half hours. I saw the PA first then the doctor. I found Dr to be aloof, unhelpful and not empathetic. He seemed to have little concern for my pain or a treatment plan. I left more frustrated and upset. As a patient I felt like a MRI snapshot and nothing more. Terrible experience!
Hi Mark! We are sorry to hear about your experience with Dr. K and his staff. It was never our intention to be appear unhelpful or unkind. We have passed your comments on so we can use this feedback to improve our office. Thank you.

Had what was described as a simple discectomy by Dr. Khachatryn three years ago. Leg has been numb and painful ever since. He says all went well.

Dr. K is an amazing surgeon. He performed back surgery on my 80 year old mother in March of 2017. Prior to surgery my mother was on a large amount of pain medication, not able to sleep, and making monthly visits to the ER because she was in so much pain. Now, she is off all of the pain medication, and is back to an active lifestyle. I'm so grateful to this doctor for his talent, care and experience. Thank you Dr. K!

Dr. K. Is amazing! If you have back issues and need fusion and/or a artificial disc he is awesome. The fusion he does still allows movement and takes strain off needing further future fusion's. I know many people with a standard fusion, and they continue to deteriorate. He will answer your questions without making you feel like you're out of your place. The MA is great also! She is thorough and very understanding and prompt with any issues!

From the moment that I met Dr. K and his staff, I was very impressed by their professionalism and courtesy. Dr. K asked me about my symptoms and examined my MRI and told me he believed he could help me with my neck and nerve pain in my left arm and hand by performing disc replacement surgery. He patiently answered all of my concerns and questions, and I left believing that he genuinely wanted to help. Fast forward to today, 3 weeks out of surgery-I am pain free at last! Thanks so much Dr. K!!!

Dr. K is amazing. He is very honest and straightforward. He walked me through the pros and cons of fusion vs. disc replacement. Dr. K and his staff were instrumental in assisting with insurance issues and in scheduling surgery. Dr. K resolved my pain caused by another surgeon. I will be eternally grateful.
