Dr Jon Dickinson

There is something seriously wrong with a surgeon Jon Dickinson

Do not let Dr. Jon Dickinson scope your hips. I have a long history with CPOSM and I won’t delve into the hours wasted waiting in their lobby. My frustration lies solely with Dr. Dickinson. He scoped both my right and left hip and my right hip is now in much worse shape — from Day 1 post op — and my left hip saw no improvement.

Recent MRI’s on both hips clearly show a lot of carelessness on Dr. Dickinson’s part — per his surgical peers, he didn’t do a very thorough job on either hip. Dr. Dickinson was made the de facto hip arthropscopy surgeon in the office after Dr. Gilbert retired. So Dr. Dickinson does knees, shoulders and hips as well as spends time as the Oakland Athletics orthopedist.

Knowledgeable surgeon, indeed, but he is so incredibly rushed both in failing to describe the risks associated with surgery and doing a thorough job in the maximum 90 minutes he allocates to your surgery. Hip surgeries inherently take longer due to the traction process, but Dr. Dickinson is so careless in what he does that he seems jaded in thinking follow-up surgeries are just part of the process.

I now have second and third opinions from other hip surgeons who have seen before & after MRI’s of my right hip, which is in constant pain. Both say Dr. Dickinson’s questionable surgical actions to debride “tearing” tissue away from my right labrum without doing a thorough job removing osteophytes near the labrum have resulted in exposed nerves in the labrum.

Those nerves are now being constantly irritated with pain and clicking in my hip that wasn’t present before surgery. Both surgeons also say that I didn’t even need the surgery in the first place, since I didn’t have any pain in my right hip months leading up to the surgery.

Dr Dickinson still, however, encouraged me to have surgery on it, since the MRI showed a torn labrum. He claimed that torn labrums will eventually lead to hip replacements, which isn’t true, and failed to tell me that 2/3’s of hip arhroscopy’s leave the patient worse or the same, especially when it comes to labrum surgery which is so uncertain.As with everyone else on this board,

Dr. Dickinson nonchalantly told me to give it a year with rehab, which I did. It has been over a year and a half, and my right hip has not improved since Day 1 post op. It was fine before surgery. I now live in NYC and Dr. Dickinson won’t return my phone calls or respond to my letters asking for reimbursement for my out-of-pocket expenses for the surgery on my right hip. There is ZERO accountability from him or CPOSM when it comes to their actions.

I even wrote to Dr. Callander (Managing partner) explaining my situation – nothing from him either, which is completely disrespectful. There is something seriously wrong with a surgeon when he shows less accountability after working on my body than an auto mechanic does after working on my car.

  1. Great customer service!

    What can I say, as a 68 year old active male, had to have the left knee replaced, checked with some Doctors in my area, Walnut Creek. Heard about Dr Dickinson over at CPMC. Scheduled an appointment, saw him, he said surgery is an option, my call.

    Scheduled for January. Surgery went off like clock work, the care at CPMC was the best, the follow up care by Dr Dickinson was excellent, the scar, what scar is not to be seen. After 7 weeks all my range of motions have returned to normal with only a slight tightness in the knee. Anybody considering knee surgery, you must see this gentlemen at CPMC

  2. He advised that I replace both knees at once because of my good health and normal weight.

    I am a 67 year old male who came to Dr. Dickinson for information on how to help my deteriorating knees. I have coached and played basketball and baseball and officiated basketball for more than 40 years. Over the last two years he gave me steroids, and other standard treatments and exercises.

    I also head a school and need to be highly mobile. My ability to walk a lot and stand without pain had been severely compromised. I had become bow-legged. He advised that I replace both knees at once because of my good health and normal weight.

  3. Great Service.

    I was referred to Dr. Dickinson for my shoulder and I am extremely happy and satisfied with my care. I was shown to a room shortly after my arrival and right on time for my appointment. Though the office was busy, the doctor spent time with me, listened to my complaint, explained his diagnosis, and an x-ray was taken there in the office,

    which was very convenient. Later, the doctor returned to show me what exercises I needed to do. The office staff were friendly, courteous and helpful. Parking was next door. I would highly recommend Dr. Dickinson to anyone needing an orthopedist, and in particular (in my experience anyway) a shoulder specialist.

  4. This guy is simply phenomenal.

    This guy is simply phenomenal. He takes his time, he is very detailed, explains everything in detail, he tried conservative approaches (Physical Therapy) until he realized I needed a surgery on both knees (runner’s knee).

    My knees are fine. His California Pacific clinic is by far the best in the city. If they are good for thr 49ers and the SF ballet they should be good enough for you

  5. Bad fellow!

    The Worst and a Bad fellow too!

  6. I would look elsewhere in future.

    Not impressed. I interviewed and passed on one other doctor before deciding to go with Dr. Dickinson, and wish I’d continued looking. The surgery was fine but the follow up was a disaster. I would look elsewhere in future.
