The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Hernandez.
  • “It's been two years now since I had my left hip replaced by Dr. Hernandez and I couldn't be more satisfied. Within a month after the surgery, I was riding my mountain bike as if the surgery had never occurred. This was definitely the easiest surgery to recover from that I have ever had and now, two years later, I still fill fine. Thank you Dr. Jaime Hernandez from the bottom of my heart and thank you SCOI for being there when I was in need of a real quality of life improving procedure. -- Donald G.”

  • “My total knee replacement in April 2012 went very smoothly and the pain post-operatively was very minimal. Dr Hernandez and his staff are very professional and personable, plus he has a good sense of humor.  I would most definitely return to him, if I ever needed further joint replacement. Highly recommended.”

  • “I was a 56-year-old male who enjoyed all outdoor activities, but had been experiencing pain in my left hip for about a year. I always thought it would just go away and tried to ignore it. In September of 2011, I was on a 15 mile hike in Yosemite and was having trouble keeping up with the boys. I had always been the leader and finally admitted to myself I had a problem.  After returning from that camping trip, I made an appointment to see Dr. Jaime Hernandez at SCOI in Van Nuys, California. He asked me a few questions and took a few X-Rays. His diagnosis was a hip replacement. I made an appointment for surgery and on February 13, 2012. Dr. Hernandez performed the most perfect hip replacement procedure anyone could ask for. I was walking the day after surgery and riding my mountain bike 20 miles within a month. It was an easy procedure to recover from, and with therapy and the guidance of Dr. Hernandez, I was back to a full and active life within 7 weeks of the surgery. Looking back, I can only ask myself, Why did I wait so long to seek help? This summer I went bike riding, body surfing, hiking, swimming in Hawaii, and played tennis as if I was 20 years old all over again. All I can say is THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to Dr. Hernandez and the SCOI team. -- Donald G.”

  • “Throughout my life, I have always been a very active person, participating in a variety of sports and at a younger age, at a relatively elite level. Sadly for me, some years back, after a couple of training-related falls, I found myself in quite a degree of skeletal pain, primarily in my left hip and leg. I did the usual route of rheumatologists, anti-inflammatory drugs, and painkillers, however, my condition deteriorated to a level where suddenly, I found myself walking with a cane, which to me, was not acceptable.The constant pain and lack of sleep was really getting me down, fortunately, I had an exceptional personal trainer, who along with keeping me physically fit, committed herself to getting me pain-free. I did not welcome the idea of hip replacement surgery. I eventually realized that it was the only solution to potentially eradicate my constant pain. My trainer told me that through her extensive Californian healthcare network, she would do research to find me the very best hip surgeon in Los Angeles. To this very day, I am convinced that she was 110% successful with her quest. She recommended Dr. Jaime Hernandez as the person who would fix my problems! From the moment I met Dr. Hernandez, I knew that he was the perfect surgeon to get me back, as close as possible, to my peak level of pain-free and cane-free fitness. The whole process from his preliminary detailed description of the surgical procedure, the actual procedure itself, and my wonderful post-operative nursing care was actually way better than I had actually hoped for. This attitude is reinforced with my regular follow up consultations with Dr. Hernandez and his wonderful team. I feel highly qualified, from a patient's perspective, to say that it doesn't get any better than this! One thing that I really must emphasize is that from the moment I awoke in post-op, I have really not had any pain whatsoever and I believe that this is truly remarkable, based upon where I was pain wise when I was admitted. Sometime in the future, I will most likely have my other hip replaced and frankly, I cannot begin to imagine having the procedure done by any surgeon other than the remarkable Dr. Jaime Hernandez. -- David G.”

  • “I had a hip replacement and everyone was very kind and helpful. Dr. Hernandez was a wonderful surgeon with a good follow up afterward. The nurses were also very good and took good care of me.”

  • “After having been told for more than 15 years that I did not need a hip replacement, I was referred to Dr. Hernandez by another SCOI doctor.  Dr. Hernandez took one look at my x-rays and said I was in desperate need of a hip replacement. Although most people might be scared with this diagnosis, I was extremely relieved! FINALLY, there was hope for an end to the intense pain I had lived with for far too long!!  My surgery was performed in the evening of July 19th, 2012 and I was home recovering early in the day on July 21. My pain was minimal and my recovery was swift! I was back at work as a 5th grade teacher on August 8th, just 20 days after my surgery! I never even had to use the pain pills that were prescribed. Words cannot convey how thankful I am to Dr. Hernandez for giving me my life back! Every day was a struggle for me to just do what I had to do. Now, I am back to hiking and am able to do everything I had been unable to do for so many years!”

  • “I had pain for several months in my hip and groin. I finally went to SCOI after my primary doctor recommended I see Dr. Jaime Hernandez, who is an orthopedic surgeon. He gave me complete confidence in a diagnosis to have a hip replacement. I am so happy I did this under his able hands and am now recovering with physical therapy. I appreciated the relationship I had with the doctor and his assistants.”
