Dr. Ziv was born in California and raised in the San Fernando Valley. He attended Birmingham High School where he was a National Merit Scholar. Dr. Ziv then attended UCLA for his undergraduate studies, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Neuroscience (Psychobiology). While at UCLA, he worked in the department of Cardiothoracic Surgery where he co-authored multiple research studies and flew with the transplant team during heart transplants. Dr. Ziv earned his medical degree (M.D.) from UC Irvine where he was elected to the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha honor society and received several other academic awards. He then spent 5 years performing his residency at the USC Department of Orthopedic Surgery where he divided his time between LA County-USC Medical Center, USC University Hospital, and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. Dr. Ziv then performed his Hand Surgery Fellowship at the prestigious NYU-Hospital for Joint Diseases in New York. After this long training path, he then practiced Orthopedic hand surgery for 10 years at the Center for Orthopedic Specialists in West Hills and Westlake Village, performing over 4,000 operations, most in the hand and elbow. In late 2013, Dr. Ziv was sworn in as Major Ziv in the U.S. Army Reserve (Medical Corps). He immediately volunteered for deployment to Afghanistan, and in September 2014 left his practice and deployed to Forward Operating Base Shank in eastern Afghanistan, where he was the sole Orthopedic surgeon on an elite Forward Surgical Team. In January 2015 he opened a new practice, Valley Hand & Orthopedic, with offices in Van Nuys, Thousand Oaks, and Valencia. Dr. Ziv now plans to build on his decade of providing compassionate, focused one on one care to residents of the San Fernando and Conejo Valleys in a more intimate setting.
