I've had two surgeries with Dr Jimenez. First surgery was a full hip replacement using a titanium joint. The second was a knee arthroscopy. Both were a success and the staff went above and beyond my expectations, especially Chelsea his nurse assistant. I highly recommend Dr Jimenez, he is by far the best surgeon! Not to mention he is really nice. Andrea V.

I have had two hips replaced, a fracture pelvis healed and a torn shoulder fixed and replaced by Dr Jimenez. Found him to be very knowledgeable and progressive he his approach. He is very straightforward and at times can come off as being brusque, but he skills are unquestionably the best.

I fell off a ladder while changing lights in the worship area ceiling of a church severely shattering my ankle. Dr. Jimenez did an amazing job of rebuilding my ankle. It took two surgeries and a lot of therapy, but 5 months, I am 79 and now walking again normally without a cane. He did a fantastic job and I highly recommend him. His office and staff were very efficient and easy to work with.

In 2002 I had a horrific fall that shattered my hip socket. The emergency doctor said Dr. Matthew Jimenez is the only doctor he’d recommend. He was right! Soon I was back to my active lifestyle The accident did result in a loss of cartilage; so in 2015 I had my hip replaced. Again Dr. J. did his magic - in fact, my golf game improved! :) He has an outstanding medical staff! They are there with support, before, during and after surgery. Thank you Dr. Jimenez and Team! YOU ROCK!

At 74 and working full time, I was suffering with two severely arthritic hips and walking with extreme difficulty. Wanting a surgeon who speaks plainly and expert at what they do, I elected to go with Dr. Jimenez as he is considered a pioneer in the anterior approach hip replacement method. Once he made an assessment of my condition, he fully explained the operative and recovery process. He and his expert staff were able to quickly schedule the surgeries, as well as expedite the necessary a

I was first introduced to Dr. Jimenez when he rebuilt my husbands leg and hip after a terrible motor vehicle accident. I was so impressed with his abilities as a trauma surgeon that when it came time for me to repair my meniscus tears in both of my knees Dr. Jimenez was my choice. He is compassionate, confident, extremely capable, and most of all the staff that surrounds him are extremely professional at all times. I had no pain post surgery and was able to start rehab slowly right away.

Dr M Jimenez successfully repaired my acetabular fracture after I had been previously told by another orthopedic surgeon that it was not repairable.

I was refered to Dr. Jimenez by another specialist who didnt think he could help me, and I am so glad I went to him. Dr. Jimenez told me exactly what to expect with my knee replacement. He and his fantastic staff answered any questions that I or my wife had about the surgery and recovery. It feels incredible to not have the persistent pain in my knee anymore.

Excellent surgeon! He answered all my questions and clearly explained the procedure and what to expect. I had a displaced spiral fracture in my right humerus bone after a bike accident. Dr. Jimenez (and my PT staff) gave me the tools I needed to make an excellent recovery.

Dr.J is a wonderful surgeon . He took care of an injury to my leg last March. I was downhearted when he said 12 weeks ,no load bearing and felt that was too conservative. I followed his instructions and was very happy to find that I have full recovery of my leg.. It was worth the time spent in a wheelchair.I have no after effects from the surgery and the scar is barely visible. He is the best.Be sure to follow the instructions carefully and you will recover to your fullest capability.

I was in a terrible motorcycle accident on May 31, 2017. My right leg, arm and foot were crushed. Dr. Jimenez performed 2 surgeries on me and I wouldn't be where I am today (driving, working, walking with a cane) without him and his staff, primarily Chelsea. They instill confidence that things will work out and they help with the game plan to pull it off. I give Dr. Jimenez the highest marks possible. Listen to what he says, trust him, do what you are instructed and things will work out.

After a very complicated break/fracture of my tibia I was referred to Dr. Jimenez by my local surgeon who had already operated without success .I was afraid I would never walk again . Dr. Jimenez was able to put my leg back together . It is nice and straight and I can walk and drive . Bless Dr.Jimenez and his staff . Nancy

When I talked with Dr. Jimenez about the bone on bone condition of my knees, he advised that I have both replaced and in the same surgery. I followed his advice. Most surgeons would not have advised that. I'm glad he did. He did the surgery and it was very successful.. He not only has the surgical skills, he has the emotional sensitivity to calm a scared patient. He later replaced my right hip. He made my legs the same length after an earlier doctor had made my left leg longer. Thanks.

Dr. Jimenez operated on my broken left elbow in February. He did an absolutely great job. I'm 90 years old and have full use of that arm. I would recommend him without hesitation. Sincerely, Georgia L. Olson

Dr. Jimenez performed two surgeries on my left leg/ankle and put together a total of six fractures and breaks in three different bones. His expertise was a key factor in allowing me to be able to walk today without crutches or other walking aids. I will always be grateful to him and his staff for their exceptional performance.

I was taken to Lutheran General Hospital for emergency hip surgery. Fortunately Dr. Jimenez was available as my doctor. What started as a frightful experience resulted in a pleasant and successful outcome.
