Ratings for Dr. James B. Grimes
A bit of time has passed since Dr. Grimes performed two surgeries on me. I feel that long term results are important for others to know. I had my first surgery in June 2015 and my second surgery in February 2016. The first surgery was for a tear in the labrum of my left hip. The second surgery was for the same diagnosis in my right hip. I cannot express how grateful I am to Dr. Grimes for the long term results that I am having. I thought that I was doing great shortly after my surgery. However, as time has passed, I just keep getting better and better! It is AMAZING! The two very successful arthroscopic hip surgeries that Dr. Grimes did have absolutely changed my life! I highly recommend Dr. Grimes.
first to do single portal arthroscopy on my right knee July 2015 right Oct 16 2015.Love the new surgery . took 4 weeks of therapy and was able to go down on the floor on my right knee. because of that I was able to have my left knee done. I was on pain pills for only two days and am bending my left knee after 3 days from surgery. I had my left knee done in 2002 with the 3 Portal holes. It took almost a year before I could bend it enough to go on the ground with no pain. I can hardly see any scaring on my knee with the new cut. I highly recommend Dr. Grimes for this surgery. Another doctor did my right knee Nov 2014 and it did not heal properly and it tore again. Dr. Grimes redid it in July. so happy my Doctor recommended him.
Treated Shoulder, impingement and frozen shoulder. Started physical therapy the following morning. Painful at first, kept going and followed up at home at least 2 hours per day. After only 8 weeks I had almost full range of motion and on my way to a full recovery. Very positive experience.
Had a surgical apt at 11 was told to arrive at 945, staff laughed when asked when asking what time will the call back be, didn't get called back until 1230 didn't go into surgery till after 1. A routine ONE hour surgery turned into Two and a Half.
Dr. Grimes performed an anterior hip replacement on my right hip and I couldn't have been more pleased with the results. I had very little pain after the surgery and a very short recovery time. I have had pain in my hip for over 20 years and now I am pain free and ready to have surgery on my left hip! I highly recommend Dr. Grimes to all my family and friends and do not hesitate to recommend to anyone who might have an orthopedic need. He is a highly skilled and caring surgeon. I would highly, highly recommend Dr. Grimes
