He took my problems in hand after another surgeon gave up after 3 unsuccessful attempts to replace my hip. He's calm and exudes confidence in a quiet manner. I had about given up before finding him.

I meet Dr. Paiement initially through a consult referral. He was very through and provided clear explanations of what was at issue and what the best options were. His team was able to set a date for surgery quickly and without undue delay. I arrive on the day of survery and was shortly on my way to prep for total hip replacement. Each member of the team was freindly and gave clear instuctions and what I should expect along the way. Surgery was smooth with no issues and Dr. Paiement was pleased with progress at our post op visit. The only thing that seemed a little out of the norm was the extended stay i recovery because of the lack of bed space availability. That was an issue outside of the teams ability to control. I would recommend Dr. Paiement to anyone considering a joint replacement.

I have never been so impressed with a doctor and staff as i have been throughout this whole process. Dr Paiement is a true professional who has a way of making you so at ease that you know the outcome will be great. I had no doubt my surgery would be a success but when i woke up with zero pain i was absolutely shocked and very happy. I would recommend Cedars Sanai to everyone i know and truly would love if any future surgery i would ever need could be performed by Dr Paiement and his team. I have told everyone about my experience and how everyone from the parking attendants, the cleaning crew, the food service, the check in desk-EVERYONE-especially the nurses and assistants are amazing. As much as i never want to have another procedure of any kind i would certainly prefer it to be there. Again, i cant say enough about how great it has been and compliment management for running such an awesome facility. Best regards

Dr. Paiement, was a godsend to me. After 16 years of Kaiser Permanente telling me no to having my knee replaced, I changed insurance and saw Dr. Paiemont, in a matter of months I got my knee replaced. He is a exceptional doctor, really cares about his patients. Always has his patients concerns first. Would highly recommend him to anyone needing orthopedic surgery. Cedars Siani is a great hospital. Afyer surgery for 2 weeks they e mailed every day to check on me. Simply the best!

Prior to my Surgery I interviewed several Surgeons. Dr. Paiement was the only one that took my concerns seriously. He listened to what I had to say and was open to exploring options regarding the type of Knee Replacement best for me.

I was up and walking within hours of the surgery, after the epidural wore off. Unbelievably there is no more hip pain. Only problem I had, there was no immediate available surgery date because I'm traveling from Guam. I was stuck here for 2 months until an open surgery date. Good thing I'm not working or I wouldn't have a job because I've been away too long.
