Dr. Lim did a full hip replacement on me 7 years ago and I never looked back. He was so kind and professional and obviously extremely qualified. If I had known what a difference my hip replacement would have made in my life, I would have done it years earlier. I am now returning due to a knee injury and there is no one I'd rather see than Dr. LIM!! If you are considering him, know you are in good hands. He is the best! Thank you Dr. LIM!!!!

I started seeing Dr. Kirk for a right hip surgery...It was secheduled for 8-2015. I had some problems and my surgery was moved up to July. Dr. Kirk was unable to do the surgery in July so Dr. Lim said he would do it. He was very caring and I am very happy with the results. I wll go back to see Dr. Lim when need to do the left side.

Dr Lim and Christ Hospital I would rate as excellent. He performed my 2nd hip replacement surgery (he did my first 5 years prior and went back for my opposite hip) and I have no regrets what so ever. This was a anterior approach procedure and he and Dr Kirk are great to work with. I've recommended both doctors every chance I can.
