Dr. Brian Dierckman, MD

Sports Medicine | Male | 37 years old

As a former Division I athlete, I fully understand the unique demands athletes place on their bodies, and how devastating injuries can be. I treat each and every athlete differently, as no single treatment is "perfect" for all patients. I am a very conservative doctor, and always consider conservative measures first. My ultimate goal is to get you back to the sport you enjoy as quickly and safely as possible using the most current and cutting edge techniques available.Read more

Knowledgeable! I was blessed to have had Dr. Dierckman treat me. Dr. Dierckman is not only anazing as a physician, but he also has a compassionate side that many doctors lack.

My left hip replacement surgery was successful with only oozing from the incision site. My pain is almost all gone. Now, 2 weeks after surgery, I will see him again to discuss the plan for the seroma (wound draining) so I can resume a normal life.

Not only is this Dr. HOT,,, lol but he is bright, and on the nose. I vote for him over Karzel anytime. Karzel screwed up my knee and Dierckman fixed me . He is great His staff is great, but I hate talking on Healthloop I like person to person communication

Dr. Dierckman, took the time to explain what needed to be done and gave me options to consider what was best for my situation. He answered all my questions and listened to my concerns about having surgery. I knew what to expect going into surgery and was confident he would do all he could to fix my hip. My recovery has been fairly easy, better than expected.
in Northridge, CA |
Clearly explained my injury as well as what his recommendation was for repairing it. Friendly, easy to talk to.

Dr Dierckman did an outstanding job performing ortohscopic surgery on my left hip, I was up and walking around in four days with very little surgery pain. He diagnosed a issue that many other doctors have over looked for many years. He takes the time to go over in detail your condition and the best course of action. If you have any hip issues I highly recommend you see Brian before you have anyone else work on you. He is on Christmas list Ken

Compassionate and very personable. Explains your situation in detail.
in Simi Valley, CA |
Personable and easy to talk to. Explains everything. He's also an excellent surgeon.
in Canyon Country, CA |
I didn't just tear my meniscus, I shredded it. Dr. Dierckman was very clear that he could't repair it, just clean it up. He explained every thing clearly and there were no surprises. My recovery is still in process, but going much quicker then expected. I was off crutches with in a week, PT is making a huge difference.

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
