His areas of expertise are total joint replacements for the hip and knee and hip preservation surgery including the Bernese Periacetabular Osteotomy for treatment of hip dysplasia.

I love Dr. Jimenez!. He did such a great job in taking care of me. I saw 2 other doctors before I decided on Dr. Jimenez. He and his nurse Rachel are the best!! He is a skilled surgeon and has a great bedside manner. I cant say more to recommend him. He's the best!!i had a hip replacement and I'm walking like nobodys business!!

I recently had my hip replaced by Dr Jimenez and I could not be happier with my surgery and recovery. I had my other hip replaced several years ago by another prominent Austin orthopedic surgeon and there is no comparison between the two. With Dr Jimenez, every aspect of the surgery and recovery went much smoother. It has been about 6 weeks since my surgery and where I am now in my recovery took 6 months with previous surgery. I would give 10 stars if possible

Dr. Chris Jiminez {Austin Sports Medicine} is the BEST doctor I have ever had {I'm 74 years old} the pleasure of being a patient !!! Dr. Jiminez is the kind of doctor I have only dreamed of meeting but, after 74 years, I started to realize this type of Dr. no longer exists. I then realized i was wrong when someone recommended that I see Dr. Jiminez. I suffered an extremely painful knee and went from doctor to doctor for over 2 years with no relief what-so-ever. In one single visit, Dr. Jim

i would like to thank dr jemenez and his wonderful staff and their professional handling of my knee replacement surgery. The office was casual and welcoming, the office staff helpful and efficient and dr J's kindness and confident manner put me at ease. They were supportive every step of the way through the painful ordeal. A first rate experience. Thanks also to seton hospital and their dedicated staff. I highly recommend dr jeminez . (The fact he's a "looker" doesn't hurt either.)
Thank you for your kind reply Melanie. I'm glad to hear you are doing well.
