Dr. Paul H. Kim was raised in the Bay Area, where he attended El Camino High School in South San Francisco. He received his undergraduate education from University of California, Irvine with a bachelor's degree in Chemistry. After college he went to podiatry school at Samuel Merritt College, School of Podiatric Medicine and obtained a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine degree (DPM). Dr. Kim subsequently pursued a medical degree (MD) at Wayne State University, School of Medicine in Detroit, MI. He graduated with High Honors and Distinction. He completed his Orthopedic Surgery training at University of Washington, which has been ranked by US News as one of the best orthopedic residency programs in the United States. Dr. Kim completed a prestigious Foot & Ankle fellowship at the nationally renowned Hospital for Special Surgery / Weill Cornell Medical College in New York, NY, widely regarded as one of the best orthopedic hospitals in the United States. His training there included tackling complex surgery of the foot & ankle such as ankle replacement, foot & ankle arthritis, ankle instability, foot & ankle trauma/fractures, reconstructive surgery, sports medicine, fracture care, arthroscopic surgery and deformity correction. Dr. Kim practices at Mt. Tam Orthopedics & Spine Center. He is dedicated to helping patients return to their lifestyles and activities with the philosophy of always seeking non-operative treatment and reserving surgery as the final option only when conservative treatment has failed. He serves and works with patients throughout Marin County, San Francisco & surrounding areas and operates at Marin General Hospital and Marin Specialty Surgical Center. During his free time, he enjoys spending time with his wife as they travel around the globe, enjoy the outdoors, and is a fan of the San Francisco Giants & Oakland Raiders.
