Dr. Jiménez-Almonte treats all spinal conditions and is one of the few dual-fellowship spine surgeons in the United States. His passion and commitment are to do whatever it takes to help his patients return to a pain free, active lifestyle. Dr. Jimenez is a leader in spine surgery and offers the most innovative, minimally invasive surgical and nonsurgical treatments. This includes robotic surgery, microdiscectomy, motion preserving, non-fusion, and outpatient surgery, which results in smaller incisions, faster recovery, and better patient outcomes.
His training in orthopaedic surgery and spine surgery makes him uniquely qualified to accurately diagnose the source of his patient’s pain. He completed two separate fellowships; one in complex spine deformity and another in minimally invasive/robotic spine surgery where he worked with the pioneers in minimally invasive, motion sparing, and robotic spine surgery.
Dr. Jiménez-Almonte was raised in Bayamón, Puerto Rico and has dedicated his life to academic excellence. He graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Puerto Rico School of Medicine. During medical school training he completed a combined M.D and Master’s Degree Program with the prestigious Mayo Clinic Medical School in Rochester, MN. During his orthopaedic surgery residency, he was the highest scoring resident in the nation on the Orthopaedic In-Training Examination.
As a surgeon-scientist, Dr. Jiménez-Almonte has authored over ten peer-reviewed articles in major spine and orthopaedic journals and has written several book chapters on spine related topics. His research has been presented at both national and international spine surgery conferences.
He is a member of the American Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the Society for Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery, The International Society for the Advancement of Spine Surgery, and the North American Spine Society.
