Jong Kim was a twenty-one-year old junior in college when he decided that he wanted to become a doctor. His father had just passed away, and this sad event made him think seriously about his life and what he wanted to do with it. Years later, he says that one of the best things about his profession is seeing patients recover and return to health. Dr. Kim believes in maintaining a balance between work and family, is happily married to his wife Young An, with whom he has three sons. Twin Cities Heart and Lung's newest member, Dr. Kim is particularly interested in heart and lung transplants. When asked about a historical figure in surgery he'd like to meet, Dr. Kim mentioned John Wiegenstein, who was the driving force behind the establishment of emergency medicine as a separate discipline back in the 1960's and '70s. One of Dr. Kim's favorite memories in the hospital was helping a young girl who had been in a car accident and brought into the trauma ward where he was on call. Dr. Kim figured out that the girl had a punctured intestine (which the previous doctors on the case had not), and so he was able to in her recovery and make a difference in her life.Read more
