Dr Tim Yoon I believe is one of a kind. He performed surgery on my back and and I promise after the surgery I never felt the pain in my back again. He’s a doctor with a few words but enough confidence to remove any fear one might have had when you entered his presence. He’s pleasant and self assured of his job. He listens to you and allow you to decide if you really want the surgery. Sept 16, 2021

Dr Yoon performed spinal surgery on me at the Emory Spinal Clinic. In arriving at the decision to proceed with this surgery the doctor was extremely open in talking about the risks, pain and recovery. The procedure was as he described and within one week, I was fairly self sufficient. The pain during the first two days was as he described as fairly intense, but subsided with each day afterward. I was walking in the house every few hours on the second day as recommended for a couple of weeks and then ventured outside near the house. within a month I only experienced mild pain but was fully active within the detailed rules provided by Emory. I would recommend Dr. Yoon to anyone suffering from back pain or sciatic discomfort. Excellent Doctor.

Before meeting Dr. Yoon for my back/sciatica pain I went to another spine surgeon. That surgeon did a 'cleaning' out of my L4, L5 and S1 and in 6 weeks the pain returned. Dr. Yoon was referred to me by friends whom he helped. After meeting with Dr. Yoon and his team my husband and I felt he was the right surgeon to help me. They explained in detail what would be done and how long my recovery would be. The surgery was 6 1/2 hours long and very involved. I have all sorts of nuts and bolts in me!! Now 3 months later, I have NO pain. I can go on long walks, cook standing up, and shop without difficulty. It was a long road of recovery but now I know it was worth it. My quality of life has greatly improved. I now refer Dr. Yoon and his team to those who need their expertise.

I came to Dr. Yoon with major nerve pain in my lower back and leg because of a herniated disc. I had had no luck with months of PT and steroid shots. I was much better from the minute I got out of surgery. It took a couple of weeks to get over some of the soreness from surgery, but even this was nothing compared to the debilitating pain I was experiencing. Would recommend to anyone with similar issues.

Dr. Yoon and his staff at Emory were awesome. They treated fairly and made me feel comfortable. He performed a microdiscectomy. I really appreciate how much they took care of me. It has been 3 weeks since my surgery, I’m in less pain than prior to the surgery. Thank you for assisting me.

2 hours ago I have Scheuermann's Disease with Kyphosis. I had an eight level fusion to correct my kyphosis on 05/19/2019 By a surgeon in Athens , GA.. The surgery didn't correct the kyphosis. On 04/15/20 I saw Dr.Yoon on a telemed visit. He was pleasant and he treated me well. He said My previous kyphosis correction fusion wasn't done right. He said I would need a VCR surgery to correct my 80 degree kyphosis now (documented evidence of 80 degree kyphosis in my records) . He assured me he is the best and he could do it for me if I wanted to proceed. I had an in office visit with him on 09/09/20. He asked why I was there. He said He wasn't going to do surgery on me. He said my spine was in the normal range now and denied ever saying different. He got upset with me because I was in a lot of pain. My BP was high. I was getting upset with him for treating me this way and got a little out of breath explaining how I felt.. He made fun of me for hyperventilating. He told me to stand up straigh

During the two years before surgery, I had various treatments due to pain, but I couldn't get to work without any effect, and I was suffering from stress. I was so scared and worried about the surgery. I am so happy that the pain has gone away after the surgery. Everyone, if anyone is suffering from pain, don't hesitate to ask Dr,s Yoon MD for surgery. All be healthy.
