“Since I was not conscious during the majority of the time I was with Dr. Hernandez, I have more to say about the staff surrounding him. Everyone was nice and cheerful. It made a somewhat tense time so much more bearable. I really felt that I was treated as well as possible. The whole experience was as pleasant as that kind of event could be.”

“Because of our family’s experience 25 yrs ago with both of our daughter’s knee surgeries and 20 yrs ago with my mother’s knee replacement, I knew I would go to SCOI when I needed knee replacement surgery. Of course, our doctor at that time was no longer at SCOI, it was still felt the level of care would be there, and it was. Dr. Hernandez and his staff were both caring, informative, and professional from the first visit thru post-op. Should I need my other knee replaced, I would hope to have it done by Dr. Hernandez.”
– Nancy K.

“All positive: I indicated that my goal was for rapid healing and return to activity. The advice Dr. Hernandez gave me helped me to achieve that.”

“In January, I had a total knee replacement. Dr. Hernandez's skills and confidence helped me experience a minimum of pain and a recovery that was months rather than years as I previously struggled within a previous knee surgery from another facility. I put away the cane I had depended on in March after the January surgery. I could not have asked for anything better. He gave me my life back!”

“I choose Dr. Hernandez for his skill as a surgeon to replace my knee. He and his staff have done a phenomenal job with my care before and after my surgery. I had total confidence that the procedure and rehab would be smooth. When I did have an issue with scar tissue, it was addressed right away. I would recommend Dr. Hernandez to anyone needing a knee or hip replacement.”

“Dr. Hernandez replaced my left knee in June. He did a wonderful job, and I recovered much quicker than I expected to. He is an excellent doctor, and I plan to have my right knee replaced by him soon. He is the best surgeon for knee replacements in the area (Santa Clarita), and I am very lucky to have found him.”
– Linda N.

“My knee replacement surgery went better than I expected. I was treated with respect and honesty as I prepared for surgery from all staff members. Dr. Hernandez gave me every reason to trust him. His reputation preceded him and I felt confident during our appointment. I was prepared for any side effects and told honestly that I should do all of the physical therapy and keep moving. I also enjoyed being connected by the patient portal that checked in with me online and at my convenience. I was able to answer questions and ask questions of my own. My surgery outcome has been better than I anticipated.”

“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!”

“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.”

“I had an anterior right hip replacement by another surgeon in Colorado five years ago. I thought that was a great experience. I was in the hospital for three days with that, and the only complication was severe constipation from the pain meds. I told Dr. Hernandez about this experience, and he said it would be even better this time with his anterior left hip replacement. I thought that was hard to believe. Well, I'm three weeks into recovery, and he was right. My experience this time is I'm healing quicker, in less pain overall, and can do PT exercises much sooner. I only had to use my walker about ten days post-surgery, used my cane less than a week, and am walking outside on a hill each day. My PT is amazed, and so am I. I'm still taking ibuprofen for aches, but there has been no significant pain since the first week home. I'm anxious to get back on my bike and to go skiing in a couple of months!!!! My only warning from my PT and PA is, "don't overdo it." But it feels so good to be using my hip again. I can't put it into words. Dr. Hernandez and his team are awesome.”

“Before surgery on my hip, I was limping badly and was in constant pain. Seven weeks later, I am walking normally, and the slight pain that remains diminishes every day as I exercise to strengthen the muscles around my hip. The results have exceeded my expectations. Thank you, Dr. Hernandez, and your entire attentive team!”
– Kristian V.

“After consulting with two other orthopedic surgeons, one who hardly entered the room and stood with a clipboard didn't examine me at all and barely made eye contact, even though a very notable surgeon. However, I found Dr. Hernandez to take a sincere interest, examine me, and spend at least 10-15 minutes discussing my case and answering all my questions. He made eye contact, had a sense of humor, and gave me the confidence to feel this was the right surgeon for me. I have had both my hips replaced with Dr. Hernandez and couldn't be happier. Thank you, Dr. Hernandez. You really are a wonderful surgeon in all aspects.”

“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.”
– Kirt E.

“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.”
