Throughout all of the issue with my spine, Mr Yoon has been polite and easy to talk with, he has explained everything clearly and has ensured that my treatment has been as carried out as soon as possible. Mr. Yoon has always been in attendance prior to and following each procedure, to explain everything, and has been engaging on follow up consultations. I have complete trust in him. Both the Nottingham Spire and Leicester Nuffield hospitals, Where treatment was carried out, are highly professional establishments, staffed by welcoming, attentive professional personnel.

MR Yoon is one of the most reassuring doctors. I was in extreme pain when I saw him first, he explained that he could help, within 3 weeks he had operated. He is skilful and extremely encouraging. The experience from Spire hospital was second to none, I thought I was Ina 5 star hotel with a personal carer. I recently saw Mr Yoon for a follow up appointment he explained what he had done, advised on the way forward and how long my recovery period would be, I feel confident for the future. Before I saw Mr Yoon I had severe spinal stenosis, could hardly walk now, since the operation I no longer walk with either a stick or crutch. In my rush to comment, I forgot to include Mr Yoon's great team. Firstly Bob who was so reassuring. Secondly his secretary Suzanne who was so helpful, she was recovering from an operation herself but was working from her bed. I really appreciated our chats she is so professional and very knowledgable. I would recommend Mr Yoon unreservedly, oh I forgot a thoroughly nice person.

From the very first meeting with Mr Yoon he has shown a very calm and relaxed manner, explaining everything very clearly and easily understood. He made me feel very comfortable with my decisions to have micro discectomy in my lower spine and the operation couldn't have gone any better. I was up and walking within hours of surgery with only the expected pain from the wound. All other nerve pain had totally gone and the nursing team at Spires hospital Nottingham helped me with the pain management over the next few days extremely well. 8 weeks later and the recovery has continued to exceed my expectations with the aid of follow up meetings with Mr Yoon and also the excellent physio team at the Spires Nottingham. I would fully recommend Mr Yoon to anybody considering advice regarding their back pain and sciatica pain. Also my experience at the Spires hospital Nottingham was excellent and is fully recommended
