What Patients are Saying About Dr. Armen Khachatryan, MD

  • I suffered from severe back pain for over a year until I found DR. K and his staff. After two appointments they had narrowed down the problem, and I had my surgery. I have not had any pain sense the surgery. Before I was constantly in pain, now I have my life back. DR. K and the whole staff was amazing! Thank you!!
    — Vanessa P.
  • I'm so happy I met Dr. K! I was very nervous to get this done but the numbness in my hand and pain in my shoulder was getting worse. All of the staff treated me so good and I can't be more happier that this was done. I was first told my only option was a fusion, wrong! Disk replacement is the best option! Thank you Dr K and staff! I feel fantastic!
    — Max I.
  • Feeling so great!!! 4 months out and I'm back to doing what I love! Disk replacement was my best decision ever! Thanks Dr. K
    — Sherida D.
  • My experience with Dr. K and his staff has been nothing short of LIFE CHANGING! He is a remarkably skilled surgeon who helped relieve me of years of neck pain and the accompanying nerve pain in my left arm and hand... Yesterday, I had my three week check-up, and I am pleased to report that the surgery was a tremendous success. I am PAIN FREE ! A big thanks to Dr. K for giving me my life back. Also, I want to personally thank his Medical Assistant, Felisa. She was a terrific help to me, too! Without hesitation, I would highly recommend Dr. K and his staff if you are saddled down with back, neck or nerve pain. Don't just take my word for it. Please see the amazing Dr. K for yourself. You will be glad you did!!!

  • Like I told Dr. K, I wish I would have done the replacement surgery years ago but I am sure glad that I waited for him to do it. Not only did he replace my disk but we did a Double disk replacement. It was questionable whether or not the second disk could be replaced but he managed to get it done and I am feeling great. So thankful for Dr. K and all of his staff.
    — Greg P.
  • I looked into the disc replacement surgery because I refused to have a fusion. At my age and my profession along with level of activity, it just wasn't the right choice for me. I met with Dr. K and the whole team and immediately knew I was in the right hands. They genuinely care about their patients. I had a disc replacement surgery and could not be happier with the results! This team is amazing! I have never been treated so wonderfully as I was in this office. I have my life back and I have a team I know I can depend on. They went way above and beyond my expectations for care! If you're facing a spine issue, look no further than this office of caring, compassionate, skilled and knowledgeable staff!

  • Dr K did an amazing job on my neck! He performed a disc replacement below a fusion I had many years prior. Dr K removed the old hardware and replaced the disc below the fusion. We weren't sure if the procedure would help my migraines or not, which was the hope. Unfortunately it didn't, however, it helped the pain I had been having for years, and I didn't even realize how much it was actually affecting me. I can ride my bike again and I can look down to read a book, etc. My neck is so much better and the disc replacement was the answer! I highly recommend Dr K and his disc replacement surgery.

  • To date I have 3 artificial discs. I barely remember the intense ongoing pain, but I do recall how Over time I lost the abilities to express myself as an athlete. Ten years ago I bet I saw a dozen surgeons. They never offered a clear solution; because a fusion and screws were the only option. Now there is massive hope with artificial discs. It changes the entire game. My First surgery was a lumbar fusion 5 years ago with an artificial disc; 6 nights in the hospital, months torecover. It still was worth it. This time Dr K provided neck surgery- One night in the hospital, one week out of work. This year I skied downhill; I skied very well. Disc degeneration and nerve compression seem to go hand in hand. We now have a solution: artificial discs. There is no longer a valid reason to dismiss surgery. So much talk about alternative medicine. I spent a mint at health food stores, acupuncture , massage, and on green drink. In the end, that methodology was the rip off. Get your neck fixed once and for all by Dr K.
