Like everyone who comments on Dr. Babikian, I am a delighted patient. I had a total hip replacement in October. I used only Tylenol and Lyrica for pain, and was comfortable throughout. Today, 4 months later, I am totally mobile. The care from his team before surgery, surgery itself, and follow-up care were all first rate. All medicine should be this good.

Easily the most enjoyable experience I have ever had in a doctors office. George is thoroughly entertaining, knowledgable, personable and caring. The woman he works with is equally amazing. What a team. They provided very straightforward answers to all my concerns & gave me great piece of mind.

Have a hip problem? This is the doctor to see. I think he's the Monet of hip replacement, which sounds silly, but after you meet him, you'll agree with me. He is an artist of the highest caliber. He fixed my hip with an operation that was free of angst or incident. It's been three years now, and I don't have the slightest twinge of a problem. What's more, he is a very interesting man. You will enjoy your appointments with him and look forward to seeing him

Five years ago I was a 53 years old man that lived with worsening and debilitating hip pain. Driving a car, getting up from a table, especially a booth at a restaraunt was agony. One Dr recommended pain meds and advised I was too young for Hip Repacent. Finally I found Dr Babikan. He was excellent. Surgery on a Tuesday morning. Walking stairs that night. Home on Wednesday with no pain. It's been 5 pain free years. I can only say it felt like a miracle and I am very Grateful.

after several years of mis-diagnosis I finally found my way to Portland and Dr. Babikian. He was perfect. I had both hips replaced, never had a problem, he explained everything in a clear and gentle way and I have recommended him to at least 10 people who had equally successful outcomes. He's the BEST.
