  • “I had a total knee replacement done by Dr. Hernandez and he did a wonderful job. He is a terrific guy and always listens to the patient’s concerns. He will be operating on my other knee shortly and I look forward to seeing his smiling face!!”

  • “I broke my femur playing softball on Memorial Day Weekend in San Diego. They repaired my femur and after a couple months, I developed intense pain in my same right leg above the knee. For months, I went from doctor to doctor and they thought that the problem was a blood clot, which I did have. I was prescribed blood thinners but the pain was still there. Not until April 2012, did Dr Jaime Hernandez take special x-rays and I was diagnosed with Leoimayasarcoma cancer and rushed to USC hospital for chemo & radiation. I was then told from three different doctors at USC, UCLA, & City of Hope that my leg would need to be amputated. But then thanks to my fiancé and her determination, found a doctor in NY. In Dec. 2012, after a 21-hour surgery, they were able to remove the cancer, vascular reconstruct my leg and transfer a muscle from my back to be put in my leg. I have been back from NY since the middle of February and have gone from the pool at SCOI to ground exercises and walk with a cane now! I am a walking miracle.”

  • “I am 80 years young. In my case, 80 is the new 60! I have been fortunate to be healthy all my life, requiring no illness, no hospitalizations, and taking very medication. I came to SCOI because I had a hip issue and it turned out necessary to replace. I was astonished! Dr. Hernandez met me the first consult and he was truly caring, understood the mechanics of the area, and explained it to me in a way I completely understood. He was terrific. My hospitalization and procedure of the total hip replacement, was a positive one. I breezed through it. Dr Hernandez made it possible for me to have an excellent recovery. I had physical therapy with SCOI at the Thousand Oaks location, near my home, making it easy. They did insist I work hard to conquer the intense recovery. I was extremely happy with Dr. Hernandez, his expertise, laid-back manner, and his excellent ability to perform the difficult surgery. I plan on doing my second hip this year! That speaks volumes for SCOI but, especially, Dr. Hernandez in particular. Thank you to all for the help, encourage and support.”

  • “I was a professional dancer for 25 years. I was told when I was 35 that I needed a knee replacement, but was told I had to wait until I was 60+ years old to get one. When I was just over 50, I went to see Dr. Hernandez and he CHANGED my entire life with a total knee replacement! For the first time in my life, that I can remember, I am pain free in my right knee. If you have knee pain, don't wait! Get a knee replacement and get back to an active life!  Dr. Hernandez will be replacing my LEFT knee in 10 days and I am confident after a few months of rehabilitation I will be UNSTOPPABLE!!! Thank you Dr. Hernandez!”

  • “Dr. Hernandez performed a hip resurfacing for me back in July 2011. Him and his staff were wonderful as was and is the entire experience. I recommend him every chance I get. Thanks Dr. Hernandez!”

  • “One month ago today, I had a total replacement of my right knee.  Today, I feel almost 100% recuperated. I can't believe it. Dr. Hernandez is excellent, a very good friend, and tremendous orthopedist. All the people working for him in his office, at Southern California Orthopedic Institute, are very professional, and very concerned about Dr. Hernandez's patients. I am talking about Angie and Ann in particular. Thanks to all of you, for all you are doing and for all you have done. One thing is left, and is my outpatient physical therapy, concern about my economical situation, bills, payments, and physical therapy. Thanks so much!”

  • “Dr. Hernandez is the best, I recommend him highly to everyone I speak with. His professionalism, knowledge and precise approach to both of the surgeries he performed on me were greatly appreciated. I knew every step of the way what to expect before, during and after the surgery. Having both hips replaced with in a 3 month period his expertise has given me back my active life again. His staff and surgical staff are absolutely wonderful, I felt like my hand was held before and through out the surgeries, physical therapy and finally when I was released to enjoy life again. LOVE this man and his staff! and again I would highly recommend him and have to anyone in need of his services. I am a happy, active 65 year old woman with a spring in my step once again because of Dr. Hernandez :)”

  • “I went to SCOI because their previous care for my family and me was exceptional. My right hip arthroplasty further exemplifies those previous experiences. During the entire procedure from diagnosis and options through post-operation treatment and counseling, Dr. Hernandez and his support staff were exceptional and focused on my case. Dr. Hernandez, the entire SCOI staff that I enter acted with and the Northridge Hospital staff were superior, in my estimation, because simply they cared for me and my outcome from the procedure. I can honestly say that I have felt NO pain throughout the procedure. I did have some sore muscles, but no pain. My only regret is that I did not have it done sooner.”

  • “Dr. Hernandez performed surgery to replace my left hip. At about 2:00 that very same afternoon I left Northridge Hospital with the notion of most likely having to stay bed-ridden for several days so as to recover from the procedure but thanks to the Dr. Hernandez's "magic touch" I was not only ambulatory the next day but was able to drive myself to my office to conduct a full day's business and have not missed a day since the surgery. Even better, I only missed four days of walking my dog Kiba on his regular route and pace. What more could I have asked?!”
