Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kim ""I have always been interested in science and initially during my studies at MIT was intending to become a physicist or an electrical engineer. However, I was drawn to biomedical engineering and eventually orthopedic surgery during my graduate studies at MIT.  My research focus was on understanding how mechanical forces affect cartilage biology. When I was contemplating what specialty to enter, I came upon the notion of using hip osteotomies to alter hip mechanics and perhaps prevent or slow down the progression of hip osteoarthritis.""
