    I will always be grateful and thankful to Dr. Guy Paiement for being such a wonderful Doctor. He is so personable, thorough and has an excellent bedside manner. He was even the one who changed my dressing while I was in the hospital. I know other Doctor's would just ask the Nurse to do it and it says a lot about his personality and his dedication to his craft. I will forever be grateful that I entrusted my knee to his care. I also appreciate his entire team. You are the best team in your field!

    Dr. Paiement and his staff are great to work with! He did an outstanding job on my total hip replacement. Would absolutely recommend!

    This is my second surgery with Dr. Paiement, the first being a minicus tear in my right knee then I had full knee replacement 4 months later. The professional care was outstanding, Dr. Paiement and his team work miracles. It's only been 2 weeks and I have almost full mobility, looks as if there will be no or little scaring. I go to see the Doctor today as my first post op and know I'll hear only good news! Kudos to Dr Paiement and his team!

    Dr Paiement did a partial knee replacement on my right knee two weeks ago. Dr. William Hohl recommended him because I wasn't sure whether to do a full or a partial replacement and he does both. I couldn't have had a better experience in any way! Although very busy, he and his team (he teaches) were thorough in every way. His office also set up the home health care nurse and the physical therapist for me. I drove today for the first time and plan to start hiking and doing yoga again soon.

    As a former dancer and someone who had already had one hip replaced at an early age by one of the top orthopedic surgeons in NYC, my expectations were very high. Dr. Paiement and his staff at Cedars-Sinai were extraordinary in every regard from start to finish.

    Dr. Paiement is both a skilled and empathetic surgeon. He improves mobility with the latest surgical techniques but additionally important, provides the best plan with for services and services providers to help his patients recuperate and recover, in order to put their "best foot forward," as quickly as possible.

    Dr Paiement has performed knee replacement surgery on both of my knees now. Both knees have excellent range of motion and the second one done on January 11th, is gaining strength everyday. My quality of life has already improved immensely. Dr Paiement has been attentive to every aspect of my recovery.

    Very patient oriented doctor. Explan the before and after surgical procedure.
    in Sherman Oaks, CA |
    I needed a revision on my knee. I saw several orthopedic surgeons. Dr. Paiement was the only one who took the time to explain and involve me in the treatment decisions. He doesn't have that typical attitude of most orthopedic surgeons. He is kind and caring. Will and have recommended him to friends and colleagues.

    Dr. Paiement has helped me through avascular necrosis diagnosis and a hip replacement with compassion, transparency, professionalism, and expertise. He and his team have delivered outstanding care (the surgery went off without a hitch), and his compassionate bedside manner and candor were a source of comfort throughout.
    in Clovis, CA |
    Dr Paiement and his team are excellent. I am a healthcare provider and understand how difficult it is to grade outcome etc, and how "health grades" can be irrelevant. But outcome ultimately does matter to the patient and I give the surgeon and his team of nurses "5" (My only issue is with the way the surgical pavilion handled receiving out patient info from DR P office- it was a computer problem I believe)
    in Huntington Beach, CA |
    Had been to other hip doctors complaining 0f pain in the hip area ...they ran tests and X-rays and told us there was no loosing or infection. Dr. Paiement read the SAME X-rays and noticed that the implant was loose!!! After he got in there he discovered it was the wrong size! Go to Dr. Paiement period.
    in Whittier, CA |
    He's a very good Dr. always listening to my concerns and needs. (like all the Doctors I have had attend to me at Cedar Sinai).
    in Hemet, CA |
    I have had both a hip replacement (October 2015) and knee replacement (Jan 2016). I had super results for the hip replacement. I am about 10 days post op on knee and doing well. Dr. Paiement explained the procedures well. He showed me the X-rays and where the problems were. He has a great bedside manner and took good care of me. I would definitely would use Dr. Paiement for another replacement. I just hope I don't need another replacement.
