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 In Vitro 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.
