Specialist Hip & Knee Surgeon, with an interest in early arthritis and sports injuries of the hip and knee, and after effects of sports injuries. Large practice of hip and knee arthroscopy (Keyhole hip and knee surgery) for early arthritis, hip and knee replacements (>150 joint replacements performed a year) and ACL reconstruction.
I went to see MR KIm at the Alex in mid May this year since I had an x ray on my right hip which showed bone on bone contact. This was causing me to limp with vary degrees of pain. Realising that something had to be done and the sooner the better Mr Kim advised a total hip relacement. Two options were offered a complete manual operation or a robotically assisted procedure. I opted for the latter since the accuracy of the replace ment could be achieved within 0.5 mm i.e. to all intent and purpose no difference in leg lenght. I am now wll on the road to recoverywith no pain and no limp. I see Mr Kim again in 6 months time. Very satisfied with the whole of the treatment.
Mr Kim is friendly and knowledgeable. He provided a fantastic level of care and made sure that I fully understood next steps and treatment options to allow me to make a fully informed decision. Thank you, Mr Kim.
I am a 75 year old male and on recommendations from a heart specialist and Mr Kim I had bi-lateral robot assisted hip replacements. It is now 7 weeks after the procedure and I am very happy with the results. I hope to start swinging a golf club shortly. Thanks to Mr Kim and his excellent team.
I was referred to Mr Kim by my GP. I had been suffering with a lack of function in my hip for some years and the time had come to do something about it. From the very first consultation, Mr Kim fully explained what was to happen and connected me with videos to describe the operation. I had the hip replacement in late April 2019. The care and attention I received from Mr Kim, his team at the Alexandra Hospital, and the post-operative care has been great. At the time of writing, it is 6.5 weeks after the operation. I have no pain, am regaining strength in my leg and can walk for short distances without crutches. The operation has been a real transformation and, if I follow the physio's advice and do all the exercises, I am confident I will be fully fit and be Scottish dancing and indoor climbing before too long.
