Learn about Dr. Fernando

Care Philosophy

My surgical philosophy is based on patient-centered care. The decision to have an operation is never an easy one, and every patient's circumstances are unique. Every operation involves a partnership of trust between the patient and doctor. My job as a surgeon is to discuss all available treatment options (both surgical and non- surgical), to give honest advice based on the best current evidence, and deliver expertise care using the best techniques available to ensure an excellent outcome.

knowledgeable, kind, great with the care of my 89 year old mother 3 yrs ago for Hip replacement, now he has replaced my right hip. I trust him and I am very grateful for his kind manner and Expertise!! I carry his card in my wallet and would refer anyone needing Hip or knee help so see him before any option including Physical Therapy is initiated so you have all your options and also a best qualified referral for care!

Prior to Dr Fernando, I had appointments with 4 different total hip replacement surgeons and I did not feel comfortable with any of them for one reason or another. I decided to try one more doctor and that was Dr Ferdinand; I immediately felt a good connection with him. He and his team did a great job and I highly recommend this surgeon

I essentially met with Dr. Fernando on two occasions prior to my surgery. Pre surgery care through the network was excellent. The post surgery experience was totally different. I had two post surgery appointments. These appointments were conducted by Dr. Fernando's PA. Dr Fernando's office constantly mishandled my filings for disability insurance. Although I feel that my surgery was performed well I don't feel the follow care was acceptable.
The initial appointment exceeded my expectations. I felt relaxed and unrushed. All the questions I had were answered and I left with a sense of confidence in my choice of Dr Fernano for my knee surgery.

My hip replacement journey spanned 5 years and 4 doctors and culminated in having my surgery done with Dr. Fernando, and I don't have room to write all the good things about my experience. The highlight being not only the outcome of the surgery but the care and professionalism by all involved from his office staff, to the NW Hospital staff, to the other doctors involved in the surgery. They say that usually people pick the doctor and not the surgery. After 4 at bats I finally hit a home run.

Dr. Fernando is amazing. His team answered my questions day or night. He doesn't operate (total knee replacement) and turn you over to a PA or an answering machine. He is there for my check up appointments and knows my medical history. He has treated me as an individual and important patient.
