“Dr. Hernandez and his team of professionals have given me a new lease on life! In Feb 2020, I could no longer walk across the street, ride a bike, or complete any of life's most basic tasks, without extreme pain throughout my entire pelvis area. Within a few hours of having my right hip replaced I was walking. During the first week, I was exercising my hips per the in-home physical therapy plan. The pain in my pelvis was gone and on a daily bases, the surgery pain subsided. I started my second physical therapy plan at the beginning of my second month of recovery with excellent results, allowing me to return to work only four weeks after my surgery. Walking is recommended as early as possible and 2-mile walks were comfortably completed. I have returned to mountain biking, golfing, and surfing late in the third month of my recovery. It's now been four months. I'm completely pain-free while enjoying all of my favorite activities. Please accept my most sincere thank you, Dr. Hernandez, to the SCOI staff and to all of the great Northridge Hospital staff that cared for me post-surgery. SCOI gives you your life back and I'm proof!”

“I LOVE Dr. Hernandz. As sad as it is, I'm a "special" patient and he makes me feel like it. I've had a difficult time with my first hip replacement, and now facing another... he did everything to put my mind at ease, answer both mine and my husband's questions... he made me feel like I was the only parent he had! That's why I drove 2 days (Oregon) to come back to him to have him do my other hip. When you find the best, it's tough to move on...”

“Dr. Hernandez and everyone at the Van Nuys outpatient center was great. I walked with a walker after surgery. I had the walker for the first few days. I graduated to a cane and, after two weeks, was on my own. It’s pretty amazing. There is still pain from the surgery, but with proper pain management, it’s not terrible.”

“Good and his staff is excellent.”

“As a frequent flyer at SCOI, I still completed research before I committed to having complete knee replacement surgery with Dr. Hernandez. I was told by a number of his previous patients that he had no bedside manner and was only concerned with cranking out as many patients in a day as possible. I found that these claims were not true. Dr. Hernandez was very patient, answered all my questions, and reassured me while I was nervous about making this big decision. I have no doubt that he probably does complete more surgeries in one day than other surgeons, but I did not find that he was dismissive. I've had 5 surgeries performed by SCOI surgeons, and each one of them have been great! I think by now, I own the east wing of the Santa Clarita office building!”

“Pham is great! He took care of my left knee with Hyaurlanic Acid shots! Dr. Jaime Hernandez and Pham did a Total Knee Replacement on my right knee previously too much success.Thank you, for your recent care of my left knee!”
– Richard W.
“I've had two surgeries with Dr. Hernandez. He's the best of the best. I trust him completely and know that when I need surgery, I don't worry about the surgeon! SCOI is my "Go-To" place for orthopedic surgery. I will soon be seeing Dr. Burns for a shoulder replacement, then back to Dr. Hernandez for another hip and another knee shortly, and I know all will be great.”

“Dr. Hernandez has replaced both knees. I am better for it, I have no pain and do everything I want. Life is good.”
– Hugh M.
“On my visit to Dr. Hernandez, we discussed what could be done to help me with my knee replacement that was done by another doctor. After speaking with him, I felt there was hope that he could resolve my issue with my existing knee replacement by Dr. Hernandez performing a knee revision. He was the only doctor to give me hope that there was something that could get done with my stiff leg. I am so grateful to him for his assessment of my problem and the fact that he has a possible solution.”
– Robert S.
“Very honest and thorough.”
– Vicki R.
