Dr Hernandaiz was very kind and informative during my first visit. For my preppy appt, the same goes for his PA, he went step by step on what was going to occur during my complete hip replacement. Mr Phant was wonderful.

Dr Hernandez performed a total hip replacement on me, and I am so happy. My surgery was 2 weeks ago and I am feeling great. He and the team walked me through each step of the process very carefully and I can not say enough about them. This is the place to go for any hip issues!

Dr. Hernandez has performed replacement surgery on both my knees. I couldn’t be more pleased with the professional services provided by Dr. Hernandez and his entire team both at the surgery center and the offices in Valencia. I highly recommend Dr. Hernandez and the entire SCOI team.

Dr. Hernandez is an excellent doctor in his field of hip and knee surgery. i really like Dr. Hernandez, but his bedside manner could use a little improvement. I prefer seeing him at the Valencia office because the office is more organized and the staff are friendly and more attentive than the Van Nuys office. Wait times are not as long also.

Everyone involved in my procedure were outstanding. I felt comfortable and at ease even though I was very nervous. I will be going in for a second procedure and will be confident that I will have the same great care as the first. Thank you to all involved!

Dr. Hernandez is an extremely skilled and knowledgeable surgeon. My 90-year-old mother's right hip replacement (anterior approach) was performed flawlessly and she has healed beautifully. She is no longer in pain, her hip is fully functional and weight-bearing, and she now enjoys a complete range of motion without discomfort. Thank you, Dr. Hernandez, and your entire team!

This was the two week post op visit for a total knee replacement. Dr. Hernandez replaced the other knee two and a half years ago with excellent results. This replacement went even better if that was possible..

I was seen by Dr. J. Hernandez for a total hip replacement. The process was a great experience. He explains in detail the entire procedure. The recovery phase after surgery went very well. My first appointment after surgery indicated excellent alignment of my hip replacement through X-Rays. Very satisfied with the whole experience.

Dr. Hernandez was fantastic. In his pre-op appointment with my wife and I, he explained in detail the hip replacement surgery and recovery processes. He gave us great confidence that the surgery would be successful. His team were also excellent in advisories and reminders of all of the tasks that I needed to undertake before surgery such as getting a chest X-ray, having blood work done, getting clearance from my primary care doctor, what prescription meds to obtain, etc., and then they did daily follow-ups for 2 weeks after surgery to make sure that I was following all of the recommended recovery tasks. I was walking hours after surgery and did not need a walker after just 4 days. I would highly recommend Dr. Hernandez for hip surgery.

Dr. Hernandez is direct and honest. His reputation as an excellent surgeon preceded making my appointment with him and I have not been disappointed. Everything, from pre-operative preparation information, to the day of surgery, I felt confident in his professionalism and care for the best outcome for my knee replacement. The team worked together seamlessly to make me feel as comfortable as possible. I have had less swelling than I expected. While recovery has not been painless, I feel like I can do the therapy to make myself stronger. I’m currently two weeks out from surgery and I’m on a cane and more mobile than I expected. I feel that my surgery and the skills of Dr. Hernandez made that possible. I’m grateful for his skills and the communication he sets up with his team. Onward and forward to full recovery!
