Dr. Yun has replaced both hips and my right knee...all at separate times of course. I was off the serious pain meds in one week and was driving after 7 days (after I came home). My knee took slightly longer but again driving after two weeks. I have recomended him to others and they all highly praise him and their results. Dr. Yun uses Saint John's. I love that hospital. I received great care from the nurses and rehab people.

After consulting 12 other surgeons , it was clear as soon as I met Dr. Yun that he was the best. This guy is brilliant. He tells you it like it is. He says at 2-3 weeks, you can go back to work. At 3 weeks after total hip replacement , I am walking an hour a day and amazed because I had been in so much pain for so long. Don't even think about going to another surgeon !Dr. Yun is a star. He is succint but he is positive and upbeat. When Dr. Yun says" I can fix this" , he can.He is the best!

Dr. Yun has replaced both my knees and did an excellent job! I was up walking within a very short time and had no complications either time. He is straight forward and doesn't mess around. I trust him implicitly.

Dr yum is the best choice for hip and kNee replacements. Three years ago I had my right hip and kNee replaced with no problems... I just finished having my left hip and kNee replaced. Dr yum is a total pro. I can't recommend him enough..
in Los Angeles, CA |
He is straight forward, does not hold your hand . He appears very confident and skillful and covers all bases. His practice is so organized it is unbelievable and there are no mysteries. I saw in the office and only the hospital, after that you see his PA. If you do not like a practice like that, then he is not for you. It is very much factory but a top of line one!!

one of the most arrogant and rude doctors I have ever met.
in Coto De Caza |
Had my left knee replaced by Dr. Yun on 9/28/15. I played 18 holes of golf 30 days later. Had to take the cart but he got rid of my slice. I'd recommend him to anyone. Only regret I have is that I didn't do it sooner.
in Los Angeles, CA |
Dr Yun just did my left knee replasment. He is beyond amazing. Very small incision and i walk couple hours after my surgery and i took a shower. No one is better
in Calabasas, CA |
Could not be happier!! It has been just over 12 weeks since my hip replacement. I frequently forget I have a new hip. I can do things I haven't done for years!! I look at a path to hike and I'm ready!! I recently came back from a Wolf Tracking trip in Yellowstone, I hiked up 500 vertical feet in snowshoes, slid down snow slides, took the zip line ... no problems at all!! Dr.Yun is the BEST and I am so greatful I chose him to do my surgery!!!

It has been three years since Dr. Yun and his team replaced my left hip. I cannot recommend them highly enough. A life changing experience.
