Have been going to Dr. Zivaljevic for about 3 years now. He was recommended to me by my Internist, Dr. John Demopulos. Not only is Dr. Zivaljevic very personable, but he's very knowledgeable about hands, wrists, etc. I trust what he says and have had good results from procedures he's done on me. He's great! He takes his time and even draws pictures to illustrate questions I have asked. :-)

Dr. Zivaljevic saved my hand. I severed 3 tendons an artery and 3 nerves on my dominant right hand in 2016, Dr. Zivaljevic put everything back together and today I have full use of my hand. I am forever grateful to him and his team.

Dr Zivaljevic diagnosed my hand malady accurately and performed the required surgery without a flaw. He thoroughly explained the condition and what the surgery entailed prior to surgery. He was patient and thorough in answering all of my questions.

I had an accident, fell from my daughter's skateboard and the results were a compound radial fracture. My hand looked awful. I found Dr. Zivaljevic through a recommendation of Lankford Hand Surgery. Dr. Zivaljevic did an amazing job repairing my hand. His work was spot on and his skilled hands gave me the use of mine back again. I am forever grateful for his work, his knowledge and his talents as a hand surgeon. The healing process was much better than anticipated, and I thank Dr. Zivaljevic.

He was absolutely a genius! My hands were both mutilated in a dog fight. I had broken bones, pulverized bones, partial amputation, and shredded tendons. He was calm and gentle every step of the way. He miraculously saved my nail on the partial amputation. My hands are fully functional and pain free. Cosmetically, I never dreamed they would be back to normal,but they are! I would recommend dr Zivaljevic to anyone. He is my hero.

My husband had serious cellulitis in his arm June of 2017. Dr Z did surgery and prevented it from going to the bone. He's my hero!

I had a very bad fracture in my right wrist, requiring plates and screws. Dr. Zivaljevic was very honest about the procedure and future restraints with my wrist. He did a great job with surgery, no pain, scar looks great. It's been 3 1/2 months since surgery, I have great mobility of my wrist, no pain and all my dr. visits were very pleasant. I feel he is very thorough and conscientious of this work. I made the correct decision in my choice of surgeon, and staff at Lankford Hand Surgery.

Saw him twice. Dismissive. Hates cats. Put a cast on too tightly and it cut off the blood flow to my fingers. No consideration of my pain level.

My hand was a mess!!! Dr. "Z" did an amazing job. I had a very long incision line (approx. 5") running the entire length of the top of my hand. This was done on 10/7/16. Today 1/11/17, unless I pointed it out to anyone the scar is unrecognizable. I would highly recommend him to anyone and would definitely let him operate on my family.

I had a broken humerus arm complicated by radial nerve palsy. After calling over 12 doctors in Dallas, I found Dr. Z who would work on that type of issue. I had researched the topic by that point. He answered ALL of my questions and my families. I had the ORIF surgery. I did O.T. at Texas Health. My expectations and timeline were exceeded. I have all normal motion back. He is very matter of fact in personality and answering questions. The office staff has been improving; busy place.

Stay away !!! He messed up a simple surgery. Has no bed side manner. Explains nothing. Even after surgery, no clear instructions. I had to talk to his nurse to get more info, but it was useless as there was not much in his notes for her to tell me anything. Do yourself a favor, and find another surgeon. Staff that I had to deal with for scheduling the surgery were very arrogant.
