Ramon Jimenez, MD
After 30 years as an orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. Ramon L. Jiménez now serves as a consultant to a busy sports medicine and general orthopaedics clinic in Monterey, Calif. He started painting while serving as a major in the U.S. Army at Fort Campbell, Ky. Dr. Jiménez has found that the medium he most enjoys – watercolors -- is similar to performing orthopaedic surgery. “It is relatively quick and requires execution of a plan with minimal opportunity to change your mind in midstream. You need to study and know your subject; get ready and go,” he says.
