I had suffered pain from back injuries for two years. The pain progressed from lower back to my hip, then leg and ankle. I felt so desperate that I might never be cured after visiting chiropractor, physical therapists, and other doctors. However, upon my first visit with Dr. Yoon, my hope of recovery raised. He listened carefully about my story, explained explicitly to me what happened and answered my questions and concerns patiently. His confidence makes me calm and optimistic again about my health. Now I am about 6 weeks about my discectomy surgery, the pain is gone. I can do my favorite activities with my family again, and my whole quality of life improved! I really appreciate Dr. Yoon and everyone in his team for their caring practices! I would definitely recommend Dr. Yoon if anyone has spine problem!

Dr. Yoon has performed a laminoplasty on my cervical spine and an ALIF on my lumbar spine. The results have been wonderfully life-changing. Dr. Yoon is very easy to talk to, medically and in general. His explanations of procedures and recoveries are very clear. His surgical skills and techniques are exceptional. His surgical outcomes are 5-star. The fact that my path has crossed with Dr. Yoon is a blessing for which I will always be thankful.
