I am two years post labrum repair with Dr. Matsuda. He has proven to be an incredibly thorough, friendly, and spectacular doctor at all times - pre-surgery, day of, and through about five post-operative visits. My repaired labrum has allowed me to continue doing all of my activities including running a yearly marathon, playing softball, surfing, and golfing. Dr. Matsuda's staff is also very friendly, professional and responsive. I would give them six stars if I could. Mike K. Manhattan Beach

Enjoyed my experience meeting Dr Matsuda. He introduced himself and his PA with a firm handshake and eye contact. We discussed my condition, and he explained my hip deformity in plain English, the procedure to correct it, and next steps. I did not feel rushed and I know it’s because he is a specialist in his field and that enables him to focus on one area of the anatomy.

Dean Matsuda is an amazing, caring surgeon who I trust completely. This is my fourth surgery with him. Every time he takes time to be there for me before, during, and after surgeries. His technical expertise is unparalleled. I’m notoriously wary of doctors and I love the man.Each step of the way I felt listened to and respected.

Way different from the 15 minute quickies even the most prestigious hip docs hand out. A complete and intensely comprehensive evaluation with a creative, and mindful doctor. Thank you

Very knowledgeable, definitely the giant in this field and yet super personable, candid and doesn't give an, "all knowing" persona. Unfortunately for us, repair is not the solution, but he gave very good recommendations and impressed on us that surgery is not immediately necessary. He also referred us to a colleague whom he regards highly. So at the moment, we have time to plan for future hip replacement. Definitely recommend Dr. Matsuda!

Doctor Matsuda was excellent! He explained thing’s clearly and did a very thorough physical exam as well as multiple x- ray studies. His assistant is very helpful as well. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Dean, I just happen to be driving by your surgical center in Marina del Rey after finishing a class at CorePower yoga. Just want to thank you again for an exceptional 7.5 years of highly functional use of my right hip, 3/24/15 right hip arthroscopy and hamstring labral tear reconstruction by you, Dr. Dean Matsuda. As usual, I rode in several bicycle centuries this summer. Continue to ski actively over 30 times last year. And while I was down here did the Santa Monica stairs seven times up and down & 2 power yoga classes. I cannot thank you enough for your expertise and willingness to operate an old man. I was 54.5 at the time & am 62 years old now.

Extremely pleased with my initial visit with Dr. Dean Matsuda. He is absolutely the best!!! Caring, courteous and professional. Explained my condition of Femoroacetabular Impingement (FAI) with patience and care. All my questions were answered with regard to FAI. If you are suffering with FAI, you owe yourself a visit to this brilliant doctor/surgeon who listens patiently and cares for your needs. Furthermore, the practice manager, Ginny Smith is amazingly good with office procedures and responding back with queries. Will make your visit go very smoothly.

This is part two of my review, as I have now had the surgery and have been so psyched by the procedure, my progress, and the professionalism of Dr. Matsuda and Ginny. Both of them have been so compassionate and take the time to make you feel comfortable and informed. After just three weeks I am walking without crutches, driving and getting my active life back! Priceless!
