Dr. Viken Sahakian, MD
After receiving his Bachelors' Degree in Biology with distinction from the American University of Beirut, Dr. Sahakian completed his medical school training and received his medical degree with honors in 1987 from the same institution. He did his residency training in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, the largest University owned hospital in the nation. Dr. Sahakian completed his fellowship training in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at the University of North Carolina Hospitals at Chapel Hill. During his tenure there, he did extensive research in Endometriosis and was trained in all facets of Advanced Reproductive Techniques, including InVitro Fertilization and Third Party Parenting (Ovum donation & Surrogacy). In 1993, he relocated to Los Angeles, whereupon he joined Pacific Fertility Centers of Southern California (PFC) and in 1998 became the Medical Director and sole owner of Pacific Fertility Center – Los Angeles. Dr. Sahakian has performed over 6000 IVF procedures and is responsible for the birth of over 3000 babies all over the world. He, along with his colleagues, pioneered the most revolutionary financial program in modern medicine, the IVF Refund Plan. Now for the first time, the doctor was willing to assume risk in treating women with infertility. He was able to achieve this by having consistently higher success rates. This program has forever changed the way we practice medicine in the field of reproductive sciences. Dr. Sahakian also specializes in treating patients with advanced maternal age including postmenopausal women seeking infertility treatment through egg donation. He is responsible for the oldest woman on record to have given birth at the age of 67. Hundreds of same sex partners have also been helped by Dr. Sahakian in achieving their dream of building a family through egg donation and surrogacy. It is his mission to help couples with infertility and to be there for them every step of the way. Dr. Sahakian is Board Certified in both Obstetrics/Gynecology and Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility and assumes teaching responsibilities at Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology at UCLA Hospitals.

Care Philosophy

Our mission is to help you have a baby, regardless of your marital or financial status, or the ticking of your biological clock. Pacific Fertility Center (Top In Vitro Fertility Center in Los Angeles) provides the latest medical treatments for infertility, and we carefully advise each patient of all the medical options. Of course, the selection of a treatment protocol depends on each patient's medical history and condition.

However, many non-medical considerations can also influence the selection of treatment. Therefore, in addition to presenting the patient with all the appropriate medical options and their probability of success, our physicians and staff also explain the physical, emotional and financial implications of each approach.
