Meet Shahab Mahboubian, D.O. of Height Lengthening Institute in North Hollywood

Today we’d like to introduce you to Shahab Mahboubian, D.O.

Shahab, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
Working on the human body and helping those with musculoskeletal injuries was always a passion of mine at a very young age. Learning about making people taller and correcting their deformities came toward the end of my orthopedic residency and I found it fascinating.

I was determined that this specialty would truly fulfill my desire to help those in need. In the past few years, I have been able to not only make people taller or walk normally, but I have raised my patients’ confidence and helped them achieve their long-life goals.

I have been fortunate enough to learn from some of the best surgeons in the country and I keep myself updated on all the latest techniques in orthopedic surgery. Using minimally invasive procedures with my drive for perfection and being very meticulous during surgeries sets me apart from other surgeons.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Becoming an orthopedic surgeon has been a very long and difficult road for me. It required long hours of studying and years of training. But most importantly becoming an orthopedic surgeon requires a strong motivation and a passion to help others. I was fortunate enough to become what I had always dreamed of when I was younger. I believe my strive to become a great surgeon has also been reflected on my successes for treating my patients.

Height Lengthening Institute – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
I completed my training in Limb Lengthening and Deformity Correction Surgery at the world-renown Hospital for Special Surgery in New York in 2010. Along with general orthopedics, some of the specialized surgical techniques I perform include correction of bow-legs and knock-knees, and leg-length discrepancies. Cosmetic limb lengthening, however, seems to be the most talked about surgery that I perform among my patients.

What is “success” or “successful” for you?
I believe success is defined from the positive comments provided from the patients who I have treated. Most of my surgeries have been very successful in helping patients return to normal activities or reducing their pain. The greatest compliments I get from my patients are when they refer their friends and family to me, which fortunately happens quite often!
