Dr. Garabekyan's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Garabekyan "Dr. Garabekyan specializes in the treatment of labral tears, articular cartilage injuries, femoroacetabular impingement, hip dysplasia, osteitis pubis, hip tendon injuries, and osteoarthritis. Being proficient in both hip arthroscopy and realignment osteotomies of the pelvis and upper femur (PAO/DFO), he provides a uniquely holistic approach to the treatment of hip dysplasia. Dr. Garabekyan performs hip arthroscopy without a perineal post, enabling him to carry out simultaneous bilateral hip arthroscopy to minimize recovery time and get his patients back in the game faster. Dr. Garabekyan completed fellowship in Hip Preservation Surgery at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. After fellowship, Dr. Garabekyan relocated to his home town of Los Angeles, CA to establish the Southern California Hip Institute, providing comprehensive care for a variety of complex hip disorders. Dr. Garabekyan has authored and co-authored numerous journal articles, textbook chapters, and online publications in hip preservation surgery. He has been an invited speaker at national and international conferences, presenting the results of his work. His research interests include improved characterization of acetabular dysplasia, the role of femoral torsion and acetabular version in borderline dysplasia, and capsular management during hip arthroscopy. Dr. Garabekyan has served as the Assistant Team Physician for Marshall University, treating hip disorders in division one athletes and successfully returning them to play."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Garabekyan "The Southern California Hip Institute (SCHI) Advantage

More Than Just The Hip

The spine, pelvis, and hips form an integrated kinetic chain.  As such, each of these elements has to be included in the evaluation to properly diagnose and treat disorders that give rise to hip pain.  Failing to do so will result in incomplete relief of symptoms and recurrence of the condition.  At SCHI, every patient with a hip problem undergoes a comprehensive evaluation of the lumbar spine and pelvis, in addition to both hips.  Gait analysis, neurologic function, range-of-motion, and muscle strength are tested on both sides of the body and compared.  Tendon insertions are evaluated for degeneration or tearing.  Core strength and gluteus activation are evaluated for proper pelvic balance.  All of these findings are integrated with the patient's history to arrive at a comprehensive diagnosis and plan of care.  We know that getting you back to your active lifestyle takes more than a five-minute visit and we invite you to experience the SCHI difference.


Adolescence to Late Adulthood

There are many physicians in the region who perform hip replacement surgery.  However, few perform hip arthroscopy and an even smaller number carry out complex realignment procedures of the pelvis and upper femur.  Given the difficulty of accurately diagnosing hip problems, patients often visit three or more physicians before finding one who can address their problem.  There is a better way.

SCHI is the one-stop-shop for your hip.  Dr. Garabekyan is fellowship trained to address ALL complex hip disorders afflicting patients from adolescence to late adulthood.  You no longer have to waste time and money going from one doctor to another, only to be told that the source of your pain is unclear or that joint replacement is the only option.  By entrusting your health to a team that specializes in treating the full spectrum of hip disorders, you can rest assured that your treatment will be customized to your specific goals.  No two patients are the same, and no two treatments are identical.  Let us explore the different options together and show you the path to a pain-free and more active lifestyle."

Dr. Garabekyan preformed my second hip surgery. This was after being very conservative and trying different treatments. He was excellent.

My new Ortho... (traveled from Idaho) I am a very "active" grandma of seven... It wasn't until after vetting four different Ortho's that I choose Dr. Garabekyan.
