Dr. Hernandez is a five star specialist. I did my right hip total replacement and after 3 days I was walking without any help. Also, the pain was minimal and took pain medicine for the first 3 days only. The nurses in the operating room were also fantastic. Over all I had a positive experience and in a few months I will do my total knee replacement with the same Dr. Hernandez.
in Bend, Oregon |
Dr Hernandez is fantastic. I flew all the way in from Oregon to have HIM specifically do my total knee replacement, to make sure I got the best :) I am at my two-week mark today and am already walking. He does amazing work (I did my research!) and I am now another living testament to his brilliance. I am so grateful I found him. I highly recommend him to anyone needing knee replacement surgery!
in Fontana, CA |
Thank you Dr Hernandez. Last year the VA replacement my right hip and I have had nothing but pain since, a year later I am still receiving from that surgery. You just did my left hip not even two weeks ago and I feel my left hip is way ahead of my right. Post surgery pain was so much less this time, have only taken 3 Norco after coming home, last time it would have been 20x this amount. To anyone reading this and thinking about a hip replacement, GO TO DR HERNANDEZ. Thank You So Much, Mike
in Woodland Hills, CA |
In my opinion, Dr Hernandez is the best hip surgeon around. Being the best, he of course is busy, but I would be a bit concerned if my surgeon was wide open and available at all times as that could be an indication that he isn't in demand.
in Lancaster, CA |
Dr Hernandez and his entire staff are phenomenal. I have never experienced a medical team so caring and kind. The daily e-mails with instructions - the ability to ask questions puts me at ease knowing I dont have to wait hours for a response. I look forward to my next hip surgery and a new life without chronic pain. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
in Valencia, CA |
Dr. Hernandez and his team are very concerned with their Patients and their welfare from the time of the surgery and all through the healing process. A great staff. Jane Nelson
in Canyon Country, CA |
Dr. Hernandez is a no nonsense surgeon. He gets to the point and doesn't dance around any issue. His bedside manner is curt but polite and he will take the time to answer your questions though they will be straight and to the point with little sugar-coating, which I appreciate. My surgery went as described and my recovery went better than I expected. I am very happy with my results and with my doctor. I hope to have him for my right hip later this new year.
in Lancaster CA |
I appreciate Dr. Hernandez's knowledge and understanding of my condition. I also like his pleasant demeanor. Having major surgery can be overwhelming and he made me feel less anxious and actually a bit excited about moving forward with the procedure.
in Simi Valley, CA |
If anyone has a nee our anything wrong with there hip go see this outstanding Doctor I am blessed to have him giving me my surgery sits hard to find Someone who cares and not see you as a number thank you Doctor Jaime d Hernandez with all my heart
in Sherwood Forest, CA |
Dr. Hernandez spent a generous amount of time explaining the details of my hip replacement procedure. The anterior cut is by far more advanced than a posterior cut. I was walking around and out of the hospital hours after my surgery and by day 10, I was considering taking a ballroom class. I can't express how thrilled my family and I are about the fantastic speed of my recovery. I returned to work 2 weeks after surgery. Dr. H. has magical hands that I would allow to work on all my loved ones.
in Thousand Oaks, CA |
Dr. Hernandez is he best hip surgeon there, uses the absolute latest technique, very friendly and communicative. Am having my other hip done by him in a couple of months, would not go anywhere else. A+ staff, recovery was much quicker than I thought. Excellent communication between patient and staff.
in Glendale, CA |
I recently completed my second hip replacement performed by Dr. Hernandez and his wonderful surgical and office teams! I'm extremely pleased with the entire process. I highly recommend them to anyone considering hip replacement surgery. I was very pleased with how the entire process was managed from my first initial visit through my release.
in Los Angeles, CA |
Dr. Hernandez replaced BOTH of my knee joints, approximately one year apart from each other. I now can walk, squat, & climb stairs without pain and no longer need a cane, which I had been using for several years before my surgeries. The excellent quality & precision of his technique make him a rock star in my opinion!
in Camarillo, CA |
I've had 3 surgeries by Dr. Hernandez and I found him to be extremely caring and professional.
in Compton, CA |
Amazing experience in regards to the surgery. Had a hip replacement and insisted on going home the same day which he made possible. Had therapy right after surgery walking 150 feet and walking up and down the stairs. He was highly recommended and I only can pass on the recommendation, if you're looking for the best

Dr. Hernandez was friendly and did a great job for me!

Ive had both of my hips replaced by Dr. Hernandez and I have had a great recovery. I actually walked out of the hospital day of surgery and was released to go home. My 2nd surgery was done in the outpatient surgery center in Van Nuys. I was home by 5 pm. Im happy that Dr. Hernandez was referred to me by my Dentist's wife who had both hips replaced. Dr. Hernandez is the best surgeon Ive met and I highly recommend him. He's busy and he has a very energetic staff to support him.

Gotta be the best
in Acton, CA |

in Canyon Country, CA |
Dr. Hernandez is very straight and up front with you. He answers all questions and his staff are very helpful. he keeps up with your condition and questions daily, My knee replacement went very well and I am not in a lot of pain. I feel that he is the best doctor for this procedure. I would recommend him to anyone having a knee replacement.
in Bakersfield, CA |
I was referred to Dr. Hernandez by a friend of mine . I live two hours away from his operating city . Well worth the travel .. This doctor is very knowledgeable and straight to the point which I appreciate .. I hate when doctors beat around the bush with you . Everything Dr. Hernandez told me to expect happened .. If you need a straight to the point no nonsense doctor/surgeon Dr. Jaime Hernandez is your guy . He will not disappoint . Today is day 13 of my recovery and I am fully walking
in Palmdale Ca. |
Dr Hernandez was very straight to point guys telling you want was wrong and want he feels is the best treatment for you. I needed surgery and I'm very pleased with it I give him a 10 star Thank you
in Rosamond, CA |
Excellent work replacing my hip. Professional and organized.
in Santa Clarita, CA |
His confidence was very reassuring. Very forthcoming with information.
in Westlake Village, CA |
The best doctor you can have is one a good friend recommends. Dr. Hernandez was recommended to us, and we have passed his name on to others. Wonderful practitioner, knowledgable and up to date on his procedures.
in Newbury Park, CA |
The whole experience has been great, he was clear on directions and exactly what would happen.
in Woodland Hills, CA |
Dr. Hernandez explains the procedure thoroughly. He does not seem to be rushed with patient during appointment. He has a website that checks in with you every day after surgery regarding your condition and further instructions. Before surgery the website sets out a time line of things the patient must do to be ready for surgery. There is someone manning the website so you can ask any questions you may have and they will promptly respond.
in Santa Clarita, CA |
First visit he spend lots of time going over procedure answered all my question. He was very genuine and cared. I really appreciated that so many doctors you feel like you're just part of an assembly line. He was able to match my the length of my leg to my other leg which I also had hip surgery on 3 months ago and one leg was longer than the other .
in Burbank, CA |
Because he has a good bedside manner and is extremely frank... with a sort of twisted sense of humor. Wicked. I *know* I need the other hip done, but he smiled, rubbed his hands together, and with a glint in his eye said something like he couldn't wait to get ahold of the other one. Who DOES that? It is kinda funny, in hindsight.
in Valencia, CA |
This experience was so much better than I thought it would be, Dr. Hernandez explained everything and I was never nervous prior to surgery
in Lancaster, CA |
Dr. Hernandez fixed a previous hip replacement by another doctor where my prosthesis had come loose. I had been in constant pain for seven months. Within days of my repair surgery the hip pain was completely gone. Other than some minor discomfort in the incision area two weeks after surgery, I can tell that I will be back to pain-free activities in the very near future. Dr. Hernandez and team did a fantastic job. I highly recommend Dr. Hernandez to anyone need hip repair surgery.
Camarillo, CA |
I found that Dr. Hernandez was extremely knowledgeable and profession in this field of orthopedic surgery. He took the time to explain the procedure and gave his recommendations but did not pressure you to go immediately to surgery. In my case this was very helpful. He also gave the bottom line, was factual and informative but again left it up to me to decide if and when. He has a great bedside manner and seems to truly care about the patients well being.
in Valencia, California |
Dr. Hernandez is an excellent doctor! His bedside manner is great, he takes time to listen to your concerns and answer your questions. I was very happy when he told me he was going to take the arth out of my hip! I felt like I was taken care of throughout the whole process. I had both hips replaced. His staff is on top of everything as well! I definitely recommend him!
in Valencia, CA |
He explained every thing I wanted to know, in easy to understand lay mans terms , He put me at ease right away, I had done a complete check up on several doctors whom I had considered before my appointment with Dr, Hernandez . After my appt. there was no doubt in my my mind who would be doing my procedure. He has met or exceeded all of my expectations. I would recommend him 100%
in Glendale, CA |
Dr. Hernandez is my Angel.
in Northridge |
I was recommended to Dr. Hernandez by a few friends. When I first met him, I was impressed that he was much younger than other surgeons that I had spoken to. He was also self confident with a very positive energy. It's been 2 weeks since my surgery, and I'm already walking better than before the hip placement. I am extremely satisfied with the whole process. It's great to get his daily automated emails, with pertinent questions and important information. I also send questions almost daily.
in North Hollywood, CA |
Excellent skills, excellent team.
in Santa Clarita, CA |
Everything turned out as I expected, am I doing well 2 weeks post Total knee replacement surgery. Think the daily E-mails are a great reminder of post op exercises, complications to watch out for, and a good way to stay in touch with questions.
Excellent Doctor. Discusses all options in detail. Honest assemennt of my problems. Available for questions as they come up.
in Encino, CA |
I am an orthopedic surgeon myself and I chose Dr. Hernandez to do my total hip in June 2015. I was unable to hike, bike, play golf or even stand in the OR without pain prior to the surgery. I stayed in the hospital for 22 hrs. Dr. Hernandez uses the latest anterior approach for his hip surgery and has two dedicated operating rooms and a expert staff to support his practice both in the Northridge Hospital and at SCOI. I just returned from a snowshoe trip to Idaho and my hip was perfect. SJS
in Granada Hills, Ca |
Dr Hernandez made me feel confident that I was in good hands. I have been so impressed that everyday have found an e-mail asking how I am and how I am doing. I would definitely recommend him.
in Santa clarita |
Dr. Hernandez is the whole package, he's a very good listener and his confidence in his profession shines through his humble nature. He is dedicated to his craft and what he promised, that I would be in a lot less pain after my total hip replacement, is really true!! I'm two weeks out of my surgery and I'm walking around my home rarely using my cane, I'm excited to see how I'll feel in aonther 2 weeks...I have very little pain mostly from the incision which is healing nicely. I'm very happy!
in Lexington, MA |
After my mother's successful total right knee replacement performed by Dr. Hernandez, I selected him over Boston surgeons even though this meant surgery/rehab 3,000 miles away from home. Dr. Hernandez and his surgical team performed flawlessly on my right hip arthroplasty. Included in A+ performance are the Northridge Hospital Medical Center and their pre-, post-surgery staff. NOTE: While Dr. Hernandez, in my opinion, is talented and skilled, post-surgery in-home care managers/admin rated a C-.
