Additional Patient Feedback

“I am so very fortunate to be under the care of Dr. Matthew Jimenez. I had a full hip replacement and after just three weeks I was back at work full time! I spent two nights in the hospital and would have gone home after just one night, but due to my low blood pressure I spent another night. I experienced minimal pain, was walking the day after surgery (including doing stairs!) I was released without restrictions and had home physical therapy (3 times per week) for three weeks. I graduated from a walker after one week to a cane for two weeks and returned to work after just three weeks. My recovery has been very impressive and I owe it all to the fine care of Dr. Jimenez and his team of professionals. The pain I was experiencing prior to surgery is completely gone. I need to have my other hip replaced and am already making plans to schedule this with Dr. Jimenez soon. I would certainly tell anyone considering this surgery to see Dr. Jimenez for consultation.” – Jeanne M.

“Dr. Jimenez is a wonderful surgeon. My wife was hit by a car crossing the street near our home. She went to the local hospital and they recommend she be transferred to Lutheran General in Park Ridge. Dr. Jimenez was able to put her crushed knee and femur bone back together with hardware and a creative method to allow my wife to be able to use her leg again. Her leg fully healed and 3 years later Dr. Jimenez said he could remove the hardware to allow my wife less pain and more movement, after her rehab and therapy we could not be happier. Thank you Dr. Jimenez, Chelsea, Brad and the rest of the staff.”

“I just want to take a minute to thank Dr. Jimenez and his entire staff for another great job of fixing my problems. He has operated on me many times now. He is the best orthopedic surgeon in Chicago and maybe the world. I owe my ability to walk and have a normal functioning life to Dr. J. Thanks doc for all you’ve done for me and countless others.”

“I had wrist surgery done by Dr. Jimenez and I can’t rave about him and his team enough. They were absolutely amazing and excellent in every way. I would definitely recommend Dr. Jimenez if you need his expertise. He is an exceptional doctor and he has a terrific team working with him.”

“Dr. Jimenez and PA Chelsea are both amazing My husband fell off our roof four years ago and shattered his pelvis, Dr. Jimenez put him back together with the utmost care and kindness. I began my care with him about 3 1/2 years ago, so far no knee replacement, but if it happens he’s my man. So far just shots, he has hands of solid gold and highly recommended.”

“From day one to my last day of check-ups, Dr. Jimenez was A-1, very thorough with every part of the procedure and results I am beyond satisfied with. I would recommend his service to anyone who looking for excellent results.”

“Thank you Dr. Jimenez and staff for giving me a chance to a new life without pain by replacing my right and left knee. I am 75 and very active in fishing, boating, and working as an Electrician in my own company. I now can walk up and down stairs with no pain. I am looking forward to living an exciting active 2018 spring and summer.”

“After my accident, Condell ER took one look and sent me to Lutheran General and Dr. Jimenez. My destroyed hip was replaced by the good doctor and I can walk today. He’s a very good man and I was lucky to have him take care of me.”

“I would like to thank Dr. Jimenez and his staff for being so helpful professionally and personally. After surgery I’m now comfortable with my hip movements. I forgot how it felt to be normal prior to the surgery. Again, I would like to thank everyone because I am so happy and I no longer experience any pain.”

“Dr. Jimenez is my surgeon of choice for hip replacement surgery. He is patient, supportive, kind and encouraging in ways that make a difference.”

“Dr. Jimenez was very thorough, concerned, interested in my thoughts and kind. He explained everything thoroughly so that I felt fully informed.”
