I had seen 3 doctors before finding Dr. Bahk, all of which had said that the surgery was too “risky” and did not recommend it. I was blessed and grateful to find Dr. Bahk at the Southern California Orthopedic Institute. After reviewing my medical reports, he confidently told us that he could perform the surgery and didn’t expect any complications. The surgery went smoothly and I came out with a straight shoulder.

Dr. Bahk was very thorough and kind. He didn't waste my time and moved quickly to surgical repair of my ACL. His nurses speak very highly of him, which is huge! He is kind to them and respectful of their time and talents, unlike many doctors. I can't recommend him highly enough!

Performed a rotator cuff surgery following a motorcycle accident and in my estimation he is a very capable surgeon. His extensive training and experience speaks for itself. Additionally, he and other SCOI surgeons are frequently asked to present on cutting edge techniques, making him effectively the expert's expert. His reputation among physical therapists (post-op treatment) is outstanding also. He makes excellent diagnoses and does the job correctly the 1st time. Highly recommended.

Dr. Bahk was kind, compassionate and straight to the point with the options of care. I had been in chronic pain for a year and 1/2. Regular orthopedic surgeons did not want to work on my injury. Dr. Bahk was and is a blessing. I am truly grateful for finding him. My surgery was August 6, 2016 and I am now pain free.
