Dr. Youm is a pleasant surgeon with pretty good bedside manners. Unfortunately, he misdiagnosed my knee condition twice. In the first instance, the diagnosis caused me a great deal of anxiety and sent me down a path of looking into treatment options for a couple months (which ended up being unnecessary as the diagnosis was completely wrong). I eventually got two sets of second opinions, both of which confirmed that his diagnoses were incorrect. Ultimately, I received very little positive benefit while under his care, except for his urging that I try to avoid surgery at all costs, which was helpful.

Fantastic doctor! Was the only doctor who was able to accurately diagnose and surgically treat my problem (after seeing multiple specialists throughout the year). Only person I would trust operating on my hip. Top of the line.

Excellent specialist and physician. One of THE best. Smart decisions, sensiitve to patient needs and life. Excelent details of what's happening with my health - and the options. Knee replacement is major. It's so painful to deal with and live with osteo-arthritis. I healed well under Dr. Youm's care. GREAT surgery itself with minimal scar. The pain was unavoidable. Horrible pain. But NYU was tops. Private room. I will have the second knee done with Dr. Youm. His entire staff is excellent.

The bad news is that in the past three years, I have had hip, arm and knee surgeries. The good news is that the surgeries were are performed by Dr. Thomas Youm. Three excellent outcomes, and I never even had to take a pain killer following any of these surgeries. And, his office and staff are sensational.

I had 2 surgeries done in 2017. I had a labrum and bicep tear which Dr. Youm took care of in March 2017 and then a tear I had in my hip in November 2017. Dr. Youm gave me as good of an experience that one can have when going through surgeries. He has a very calming presence and welcomed any questions that I had and was able to speak with me where I understood everything. The follow up appointments were fine and he is always willing to help and make sure his patient is "good". I highl

I am very grateful for this development of modern medicine and excellent doctors, superior experts, like Dr. Youm who are very knowledgeable and well trained with experience. He was recommended as the best surgeon for the hip by my orthopedic spine surgeon who was familiar with his previous surgeries. He is the best. Words cannot express my gratitude for his expertise, listening, thoughtfulness, kindness, and care.

Dr. Youm has done all five of my joint surgeries (three hip, two shoulder) and I find him to be a smart, skilled and caring surgeon. I am a type A senior and push myself physically and the wear and tear on my body is undeniable. Though friends have tried to convince me to try their surgeons I stick with this doctor as I trust and respect him and he treats me likewise. His office is efficiently run and the hospital staff where he performs his surgeries is very good. I get terrible nausea from

Dr. Youm performed hip arthroscopy on me and it helped me tremendously! It brought back the normal every day use of my hip. It’s those daily quality of life tasks that made the surgery worthwhile. What stands out about Dr. Youm is the overall quality of care and his patience to answer all my questions prior to and after the surgery…and I had a lot of questions. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Youm!

Before surgery with Dr. Youm, I was walking with a cane and in pain every day. Now after hip arthroscopy, I am back to where I was before my injury. I’m physically active and I consider the surgery 100% effective. Dr. Youm’s level of care has been excellent throughout, from first consultation, through surgery, post-surgical care and (two years later) final visit. Dr. Youm has provided excellent medical care and has a great personable manner that has alway put me at ease.

Dr. Youm performed stem cell therapy on my left shoulder and healed the biceps tear (“SLAP tear”) and minor rotator cuff tear in my left shoulder. I went from being in dire pain with limited mobility before the treatment and now I have full range of motion without pain. I thought Dr. Youm was upfront and thorough with the expectations and the process of the treatment. I would definitely consider stem cell treatment as an alternative to surgery and I felt I achieved about 98% of the strength back

Dr. Youm operated on both of my hips, three months apart. Arthroscopic surgery for FAI impingement. Both procedures were successful. Very little pain after surgeries. Left hip was almost 5 months ago. Right hip was a little over 2 months ago. PT is a bit painful due to stiffness and minor arthritis in hips, but I'm managing 3x/week and walking about 3 miles a day at a brisk pace. Dr. Youm is an excellent surgeon. He's also a very nice guy. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Youm is a wonderful doctor! He saved me from years of pain. After 8 years of pain in my hip and seeing 7 doctors I was referred to Dr. Youm. It only took him 15 minutes to diagnose me with a tear in my labrum as it did not show up in previous x-rays. My surgery was pretty much painless. A year later and I am almost 100% pain free. I can actually take a walk without being in pain. Dr. Youm is friendly and easy to talk to you. He answers and explains all my questions. I highly recommend him.

I have had both of my shoulders worked on by Dr. Youm. The first was done in 2007 and the second was 2017. In both cases there were large tears in the rotator cuff, labrum and biceps. In both cases Dr Youm was always very informative, advising me of the options (surgery verses physical therapy only). In both cases physical therapy alone did not resolve the issues and I opted for surgery. Both procedures were very successful. Dr Youm is a very talented and highly knowledgeable surgeon.
