Physician Bio

As a young physician who is still involved with competitive soccer, Dr. Arianjam easily connects with athletes. He is the founder of SportsHealth.info, a website dedicated to patient education and the latest evidence based resource for athletes. During his Orthopedic Sports Medicine fellowship training, Dr. Arianjam helped take care of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in Major League Baseball, Santa Ana College Football, Tustin High School Football, and various athletes at the University of California Irvine including baseball, water polo, soccer, and volleyball. Throughout his residency training, he served four years as the team physician of the Sacred Heart High School football team in San Francisco.

In addition to taking care of athletes, Dr. Arianjam has also performed extensive clinical research. Alongside one of the pioneers of shoulder arthroscopy, his work includes a 10 year follow-up study on the outcomes of the arthroscopic remplissage, a now widely used procedure for shoulder instability. He also has worked 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.

Some of the surgeries Dr. Arianjam performs include:

  • ACL reconstruction
  • AC Joint Reconstruction
