My experience: I was given referrals for 2 different surgeons for my hip labrum tear. I saw the reviews on Dr Matsuda and decided to consult with him first. The out of network situation was explained up front, but I wanted at leasShow moret the opinion. When I met with him he spent a good amount of time with me explaining the mechanics, the procedures and his background. People travel from all over for his skills and he teaches. I kind of made up my mind right then that this was the guy. What was required of me was explained up front and Gina kindly worked with me on scheduling etc. Dean Matsuda is a very bright, very kind and laid back personality. I could get any questions I had answered immediately by him. The outpatient procedure was non dramatic and the recovery, seemingly the least bothersome of any surgical procedure I've ever had. So yes, Highly recommended.
Dr. Matsuda is a perfect 10 out of 10 surgeon. I can say this with great confidence as I have been to numerous other specialists trying to fix my hip without luck. Over the last 10 years I've seen three other specialists and hadShow more multiple failed (honestly botched) procedures. Dr. Matsuda took the time to fully research my issue over a few visits, and helped create a surgical and recovery plan in great detail. He personally follows-up inclusive of checking on me post procedure and advising me regularly on improvements. His team is also top notch, including surgical staff, his assistant and entire support cast. I strongly and highly recommend him if you feel you need the best possible care. Thank you Dr. Matsuda! Hope to be back playing with my kids soon and on my surfboard.

More About Dr. Dean Matsuda, MD
Premier Hip Arthroscopy
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
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.
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.
He’s always great

Dr. Matsuda & his staff were amazing. I’m two weeks out from my procedure & feel better already. Would highly recommend.
Wow! If a consult about having surgery can ever be enjoyable, this was it. Dr Matsuda took so much time to analyze my situation, educate me , and very honestly give me his best opinion. Not sure which direction I will go regarding surgery, but I will definitely have Dr Matsuda perform the surgery if I go forward.
Excellent! I felt like issues were addressed and have plan going forward.
On July 8, 2019 I had a double surgery: Endoscopic Gluteus Medius Tendons Repair and Femoroplasty ,Acetabuloplasty, Labral repair & Trochanteric Bursectomy. Dr. Matsuda told me before the surgery, that it would be 2 surgeries in one and a lengthy surgery. The morning of the surgery he came in my room and ,with a big smile, told me everything would be just fine. It made all the difference that he was so up beat. All went well and I had a perfect result. He gave me a day to day rehab schedule which was given to my Physical therapist Kari Franks at Calif. Rehab Center in Newport Beach, CA. I would recommend Dr. Matsuda to anyone who needed to be seen by a Orthopedic Surgeon.
