What People Say About Dr. Dean Matsuda, MD

Dean gave me my life back. I have a rare bone deformity in both hips which tore both hip cartilage and caused impingements; Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI). I am grateful beyond words to have been referred to Dr. Dean Matsuda; one of three docs in the country to fix my cartilage and shave the bones down arthroscopically. Dean patented the machine that shaves the bone down and he travels the world teaching his gifted skill. My right hip has a cadaver that was graphed into the torn cartilage. I couldn't sit more than 10 minutes with bone rubbing on bone. Both hip surgeries went exceptionally well because of Dean knowledge & exceptional expertise. Dean gives old fashioned caring service. Appointments with Dean are mind blowing they are so through. Deans bedside manner are gentle and true caring. You can email him day or night and he will answer. No question is too much or silly. Dean also calls the day of surgery himself to follow up. Dr Matsuda is the best physician & surgeon

I had simultaneous bilateral hip arthroscopy with Dr. Matsuda about 8 months ago. I am happy to report I have never felt better! Dr. Matsuda and his staff are truly amazing. Dr. Matsuda sat with me and answered all of my extensive questions had about the surgery. If you have a torn labrum(s) Dr. Matsuda is who you must see. There are surgeons out there who can treat your issue but you must go to a doctor who is an expert in this field. The pain in my right hip began about 10 years ago. It progre

I cannot say enough about how happy I am about my experience with Dr. Dean Matsuda. I'm now 3 months out from a double hip arthroscopy, and I rode my horse for the first time with absolutely NO pain. This is life changing, as I had severe pain before. Not only that, the care and time that Dr. Matsuda takes to explain the surgery and procedures to you are invaluable. Dr. Matsuda spotted a large cyst in my right hip, and was also able to remove the cyst and do a bone graft. EXCELLENT!!!!!

I am 14 years old and after a year of hip pain, Dr. Matsuda repaired my labrum and removed my impingements. The whole team at DISC was amazing. Not only is Dr. Matsuda a skilled surgeon, but he is also very caring and nice. It is now 11 weeks post-op, I am feeling better than I have in a year. Instead of my hip progressively worsening, I am getting better and stronger each day. I am so happy that I got the surgery, and I am thankful to have had this surgery with Dr. Matsuda.

I had right hip surgery in Sept of 2016 with Dr. Dean Matsuda for Labral repair and femoroplasty form a 6 year old football injury. 4 months later, I feel great. I am back to work as a Firefighter with no restrictions. Everyone at DISC, the surgery center, and Dr. Matsuda helped me feel at ease during the entire process. He was readily available if I had any questions or concerns pre and post surgery. He genuinely cares and takes immense pride in his work. I highly recommend him.

My daughter (14 years old) had hip arthroscopy by Dr. Matsuda 6 weeks ago. He diagnosed her with CAM impingement and some Pincer impingement. She had damages to her joint cartilage and labrum. Dr. Matsuda fixed her problems. She is recovering well, can walk short distance without crutches now. Before she could not even walk without pain. Dr. Matsuda was very friendly and patient, took time to answer all our questions, has great bedside manners. Dr. Matsuda is a great and skillful doctor!
