Dr. Arianjam is a Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon who specializes in
Sports Medicine, Arthroscopy, and Joint Replacements. He graduated as
a Renaissance Scholar magna cum laude at the University of Southern California.
He then went on to the Keck School of Medicine at USC to finish his medical
training before going to the San Francisco Orthopedic Residency Program.
He then returned to Southern California to complete his surgical training
with a fellowship in Orthopedic Sports Medicine at Kaiser Permanente Orange
County. Throughout his residency, he assisted four years as team physician
of the Sacred Heart High School football team in San Francisco. During
his Orthopedic Sports Medicine fellowship training, Dr. Arianjam attended
Spring training with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in Major League
Baseball, and served as team physician for Santa Ana College Football,
Tustin High School Football, and various athletes at the University of
California Irvine. He currently serves as a team physician for Apple Valley
In addition to taking care of athletes, Dr. Arianjam has also performed
considerable clinical research. Alongside one of the pioneers of shoulder
arthroscopy, his work includes a 10 year followup study on the outcomes
of the arthroscopic remplissage, a now widely-used procedure for shoulder
instability. His most recent publication features work with a national
community-based ACL registry to identify which techniques give patients
the best outcomes for Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction. He continuously
strives to practice medicine and surgery with the most current evidence-based
literature. Many orthopedic injuries can be treated with nonsurgical remedies
including physical rehabilitation exercises and medication. Dr. Arianjam
helps guide and educate patients to make the right decision on their treatment.
