I can not understate how much I would recommend Dr.Jimenez. I have been to a lot of doctors for my knees. Dr. Jimenez is the best. I had Bi-lateral knee replacement on Dec 30,2019. I was up and walking on day 2. Two weeks out walking with little assistance other than a cane. Most importantly, PAIN FREE! I honestly didnt think that would ever be possible again. I would recommend him to anyone. His staff is top notch. Very friendly and professional. They made me feel comfortable and kept me informed on what to expect throughout the process. Thankyou so much Naomi,Henry and Dr.jimenez! Yall are a Godsend!read more

Dr. Jimenez is an exceptional surgeon and an incredible person. He and his team go above and beyond for his patients. Dr. Jimenez replaced both my hips August 2018. Recovery was quick thanks to the surgical approach and Dr. Jimenez’s expert skill.  He is a real-life super hero!read more

I chose Dr. Jimenez based on the reviews. I had my first appointment with theNurse Practitioner. He was very pleasant and explained everything to me. I am still waiting for an appointment to get injections in both knees. The issue is with the Medical Assistant,Naomi. I talked with her personally and was told she hasn’t had time to get approval. I am inclined to go to a different Doctor just because of her attitude. She literally said she is only one person and injections weren’t a priority. I hope the Dr. And Nurse Practioner are aware that she is running patients off.read more

Do the following scenarios sound similar? We can Help!

Are you apprehensive in your approach to reaching for objects behind you after a recent shoulder dislocation?  This could indicate persistent damage to the labrum or rotator cuff that could be benefited from a course of physical therapy or potentially surgical Bankart repair.

If you felt a pop in the shoulder that was associated with severe pain and weakness after catching a heavy object, this could indicate a rotator cuff tear.  Acute rotator cuff tears may be best treated with an arthroscopic rotator cuff repair.

Has that backhand swing you have been practicing for the upcoming pickleball or tennis tournament caused the lateral portion of your elbow to become painful?  Are you now having problems with twisting a jar open?  A treatment with the correct brace and injection could be all you need.

Common sports and accident injuries of the shoulder and elbow include:

Baseball: ulnar collateral ligament injuries, pitchers shoulder, SLAP tear

Golf: rotator cuff tear, subacromial impingement, golfer’s elbow

Pickleball & Tennis: tennis elbow, biceps tendon rupture, rotator cuff tear

Basketball: shoulder separation or dislocation, elbow dislocation

The benefit of care at Joint Pain Orthopedics is the specialization that our orthopedic providers have, which allows us to laser focus on a small subset of shoulder and elbow conditions that affect a great percentage of people with sports injuries and chronic conditions.  This allows us to treat every condition with operative and non-operative measures giving you the ability to remain with one clinic for all of your musculoskeletal care!  No gimmicks or surprises.  Just good old fashion care from competent providers.
