I was 86 when I had my total knee replacement. Dr. Chimento and his staff were very pleasant and professional. They explained everything thoroughly. Their protocol for surgery, pain management, and rehab was excellent. My surgery was very successful and I would highly recommend Dr. Chimento!

I had the best possible experience for someone who had two total knee replacements in a year! The protocol for pain management and rehab were right on target. No surprises! My medical care had a seamless progression, all knew my case specifics and worked well together. I would highly recommend Dr. Chimento and the entire Ochsner Orthopedic team. Grateful!

I received amazing treatment from Dr Chimento and his entire staff! I have had 8 knee surgeries and Dr Chimento topped them all with a total knee replacement. My surgery was complicated due to prior surgeries. Dr Chimento overcame all obstacles with little to no pain afterwards! His bedside manner is impeccable and he really cares. I cannot say enough good things! I highly recommend him and his staff for the most complicated surgeries. I am thrilled!
