Request An Appointment Call Dr. Navid M. Ziran
Marina Del Rey Hospital - Dr. Navid M. Ziran
Dr. Navid Ziran is a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon dedicated to innovative approaches of orthopaedic surgery. He is one of the foremost anterior hip surgeons in Los Angeles, having been trained by Dr. Joel M Matta, the innovator of anterior approach total hip replacement. The anterior approach of hip replacement is to approach the front of the hip joint, as opposed to a lateral (side) approach to the hip, or posterior (rear) approach. This technique improves recovery and decreases time in the hospital, because the hip is replaced without detachment of muscle from the pelvis or femur. Dr. Ziran also specializes in orthopaedic traumatology, which involves treating patients who have experienced complex fractures due to injury. He has co-written several book chapters with Dr. Matta on anterior approach total hip replacement. He is currently doing clinical research with Dr. Matta on both anterior approach total hip replacement and periacetabular osteotomy outcomes.
