After seeing several specialists throughout the northwest I was beyond grateful to finally find a spectacular surgeon who would end years of hip pain. Dr. Kym is a very down to earth and personable surgeon who listens and who explains information in a way that makes sense. He is also patient to answer all questions you may have. I highly recommend Dr. Kym and his wonderful staff. He has changed my life and I can’t be more thankful.
