Dr. Kim and her team performed a surgical repair to my mitral valve. I received excellent professional care from their team, and I feel very lucky to have had Dr. Kim as my surgeon. She is knowledgeable and up-to-date in her specialty, and she determined that my case was suitable for a "minimally invasive" type of procedure. I have had an excellent outcome from the surgery, fully recovering and resuming my physically active lifestyle. Thank you, Dr. Kim and staff!

Dr. Kim performed a mini aortic heart valve replacement requiring only a 4 incision and cutting only one rib inserting a bovine replacement valve. I only have to take a daily 1/4 grain aspirin and no blood thinners. I was walking four days after surgery and discharged 5.5 days after surgery. I did lose some weight & exercised moderately before going into surgery. I had an excellent outcome and my heart echo test was near perfect. I am active and working out and playing tennis again.
