Very happy with the surgical results for my herniated disc. The nerve pain was unbearable prior to surgery and thankfully this is no longer happening. I can't say thank-you enough to Dr. Kim for helping me get back to my life and work.

I was fearful of having back surgery! Dr Kim made me feel he can fix me and surely he did. Had lumbar fusion surgery on May 3 and I'm walking and getting stronger each day ! Dr Kim was amazingly knowledgeable and compassionate. He made my family and I felt "he cared"!
