Dr. Ziran's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Ziran "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."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Ziran "I believe in educating the patient about their condition and letting them make their own informed decisions - especially with elective surgery.  As a patient myself, I understand that it is important for the patient to feel comfortable with the 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!
