Dr.Jimenez is a great physician. My knee pain became very painful and friends thought I’d need a replacement. No. Dr.Jimenez injected into my kneecap and the pain stopped. He also repaired my ankle. Thanks, Gerry C.read more

Dr Jimenez and his staff are amazing. Dr. Jimenez replaced both of my hip joints the left in December and the right in June. I had a lot of arthritis and no cartilage and a bone spur. Since my surgeries I can say I am pain free and it actually feels like I was born with my new hips. The anterior approach is a very fast recovery Thanks again Dr Jimenezread more

Today is my two year kneeversary, and I couldn’t be happier. I struggled for YEARS, and couldn’t keep up with my four kids, let alone get around comfortably at home. Dr Jimenez literally gave me my life back, and I’m so appreciative! I suffered all day, every day, and now I don’t even think about my knee once. So freeing! Thank you so much for helping me Dr J! You’re the best!!!read more

Do the following scenarios sound similar? We can Help!

Shoulder: Shoulder dislocations can result in damage to structures inside your shoulder such as the labrum and rotator cuff.  Surgeries may be directed at these injuries to prevent or decrease your risk for recurrent dislocations or reduce the potential for causing more degenerative changes.

Knee: An ACL rupture may result in a constant sense of instability in the knee that prohibits you from enjoying the sporting activities you love.  Surgery directed at reconstructing this damaged ligament may provide you with the stability needed to pivot and get back to what you love.

Hip: Lateral hip pain may be an indicator of a gluteus medius tendon tear.  This in combination with bursitis may lead to a syndrome called Lateral Hip Syndrome, which can cause debilitating pain and a limp.  Surgery directed towards this may decrease the constant pain on the side of your hip.

Hand: Numbness and pain may be an indicator of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome affecting your hand.  Symptoms may be managed with a brace or potentially medications; however, if these fail our specialists may be able to provide relief of these symptoms with a carpal tunnel surgery.

Foot: Has your foot progressively looked flatter?  This may indicate a problem with the posterior tibial tendon that may be remedied with either bracing or a surgical procedure such as a tendon repair or tendon transfer.

Elbow: Has your pickle-ball or tennis practice caused you to have sharp pains on the side of the elbow?  Is this making it difficult to open jars or carry objects?  This could indicate a problem in the tendons of the elbow that may be improved with the correct brace or medication.

Spine:  Do you have numbness and tingling radiating from your back toward your toes?  This may be an indicator of a herniated disc causing your symptoms.  We can effectively diagnose and manage this with the appropriate therapy and medication regiment.

 

Common sports and accident injuries include:

Football: ankle sprains and fractures, ACL ruptures, meniscus tears, clavicle fracture, shoulder dislocations and separations

Golf: medial epicondylitis, meniscus tears, hip labrum tears

Pickleball & Tennis: achilles tendon ruptures, lateral epicondylitis, meniscus tears, rotator cuff tears

Basketball: ACL ruptures, elbow dislocations, mallet finger, achilles tendon ruptures.

 

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 conditions that affects 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.
