Care Philosophy

"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."

Patient Comments (1)
in new york NY |
Dr. Kim did my periacetabular osteotomy in 2006. This was scary because the same surgery had gone terribly wrong for me at another hospital. Dr. Kim, hospital and staff were wonderful, thank goodness! 15 years later, I can say with certainty and a track record what an amazing job he did. It was so worth the travel to do this long distance from NYC. My only regret is that I couldn't get my first hip done with him. I'm reminded every day by the pain in my other side. I simply didn't know better.
