Accepting new patients

I am a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon, and I did two fellowships: 1) orthopaedic trauma at the University of Colorado, Denver, CO and 2) pelvic/acetabular reconstruction and anterior approach total hip replacement at Saint John's Health Center with Dr. Joel M. Matta. What this means is that I fix simple/complex fractures of the upper/lower extremities such as: Clavicle, shoulder, arm, elbow, forearm, wrist, hand Hip, thigh, knee, leg, ankle, foot I also specialize in acute and chronic pelvic and acetabular trauma (fractures of the pelvis and hip joint). Lastly, I perform total hip replacements and revision via the anterior approach. I worked with Dr. Joel Matta for 5 years in Los Angeles before he left to Vail, Colorado.

Bakersfield, CA |
He is an awsome person and a very skilled surgeon.

Dr. Ziran performed surgery on my shattered forearm (radius); I found him to be caring, knowledgable, and trustworthy. He even pulled strings to get my into surgery the very next day. My recovery has gone well and -- with a lot of physical therapy -- I'm almost 100% again. Highly recommended!

I find Dr. Ziran to be very attentive, knowledgeable, patient, and supportive. He has proven to be a gifted and capable surgeon. It has been my Great Good Fortune to have him as my Doctor and it has been to his good care and the Grace of God that I am walking so well today.

Very good experience despite the circumstances, my teenager has an Acetabulum fracture due to a fall. Dr. Ziran was very patient & answered our many questions regarding surgery and her recovery. It was awesome to see her walking again.

Dr. Ziran asked for constant feedback about how he could make his services better. He was helpful in advising physical therapy and the degree of exercise that I should practice. I felt confident that he was assessing my progress and guiding me in the right direction.
in Los Angeles, CA |
During recovery for an emergency total right hip replacement, medical staff did not have 2 pints of a+ blood. Dr. Ziran took the time to go to the blood bank to find out what happened to the 2nd blood. The 2nd blood arrived 2 1/2 hours later. If Dr. Ziranh had not been present, I doubt the staff would have noticed the second bag of blood missing. Dr. Ziran's concern for his patients is much appreciated by me. Catharine Oshita

I had to wait 80 minutes after my scheduled appointment even though I came in 20 minutes early to do paperwork. I was told on three ocassions, the doctor will be right in to see you. Then I was sent for an xray despite my issue being a shallw finger laceration. Dr Ziran spent 3 minutes with me, prescribed anti-biotics and told me to come back in 10 days. Came back as requested. Waited 70 minutes this time. Spent two minutes with me and told me I needed to see a specialist. Awful bed side manner.
