LIVE OAK HEALTH PARTNERS WELCOMES
NEW ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON
SAN MARCOS, TEXAS –
Live Oak Health Partners Specialty Care clinic added orthopedic surgeon
Christopher L. Jimenez, MD to its team. He joins Dr. Amanda Ivy to provide
complete orthopedic and sports medicine care to residents of Hays County and
the surrounding areas.
“As a San Antonio native, I am excited to move closer to
home to serve the San Marcos and Hays County communities,” Jimenez said. “I am
passionate about orthopedic medicine and am looking forward to joining a group
of talented, compassionate healthcare providers at Live Oak Health Partners.”
Jimenez, who is fluent in English and Spanish, brings years
of orthopedic experience to Live Oak Health Partners having practiced in
Chicago, Utah, California and, most recently, Austin. He specializes in total
joint replacements of the hip and knee and revision of failed total joint
replacements of the hip and knee.
“We continue to grow as our community does,” said Live Oak
Health Partners Physician Practice Administrator Brent Hastings. “Adding
physicians like Dr. Jimenez, reinforces our goal of meeting the medical needs
of the area’s rapidly growing population with the highest quality of care.”
Like other Live Oak Health Partners surgeons, Jimenez will
perform surgeries at Central Texas Medical Center where he has access to
technology-integrated, state-of-the-art operating rooms.
Jimenez earned his undergraduate degree from the University
of Texas in San Antonio and his medical degree from the University of Texas
Health Science Center in San Antonio. His orthopedic residency at the
University of Utah offered him the opportunity to learn from distinguished
faculty where he learned different techniques for hip preservation and joint replacement
surgeries, as well as management of traumatic limb injuries.
Before moving to Austin, Jimenez completed a prestigious
fellowship with Dr. Joel Matta and Dr. Edward McPherson in Santa Monica, CA.
There, he learned advanced techniques for anterior approach total hip
replacement, total knee replacement and revision surgeries. He also had
extensive training in management of acetabular and pelvic trauma and hip
preservation surgery during his fellowship.
