Dr. Ziv's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Ziv "Dr. Ziv was born in California and raised in the San Fernando Valley. He attended Birmingham High School where he was a National Merit Scholar. Dr. Ziv then attended UCLA for his undergraduate studies, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Neuroscience (Psychobiology). While at UCLA, he worked in the department of Cardiothoracic Surgery where he co-authored multiple research studies and flew with the transplant team during heart transplants. Dr. Ziv earned his medical degree (M.D.) from UC Irvine where he was elected to the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha honor society and received several other academic awards. He then spent 5 years performing his residency at the USC Department of Orthopedic Surgery where he divided his time between LA County-USC Medical Center, USC University Hospital, and Children's Hospital Los Angeles. Dr. Ziv then performed his Hand Surgery Fellowship at the prestigious NYU-Hospital for Joint Diseases in New York. After this long training path, he then practiced orthopedic hand surgery for 10 years at the Center for Orthopaedic Specialists in West Hills and Westlake Village, performing over 4,000 operations, most in the hand and elbow. In late 2013, Dr. Ziv was sworn in as Major Ziv in the U.S. Army Reserve (Medical Corps). He quickly volunteered for deployment to Afghanistan, where he served as the sole orthopedic surgeon on an elite Forward Surgical Team. In January 2015 he joined with Drs. Lesin and Balfour and opened a new practice, with offices in Van Nuys, Thousand Oaks, and Valencia. Dr. Ziv again deployed with the US Army for the first four months of 2017, serving in Iraq as part of the war against ISIS. Dr. Ziv continues to build on over a decade of providing compassionate, focused one on one care to residents of the San Fernando and Conejo and Santa Clarita Valleys in a more personalized setting than most large orthopedic practices. By focusing his attention on problems of the hand wrist and elbow, he provides the most expert of care."

Dr. Ziv is a very kind and caring doctor. He took time to explain to me in details about my hand problems and potential solutions. I highly recommend him for hand related issues.

I've had nothing but a great experience with Dr. Ziv. He is forthright and always explains what is going on with my finger very specifically, even drawing pictures for me to understand what he is telling me. His staff is fabulous and I fully trusted him with my surgery with no doubts at all. Great...more
