Had a fantastic experience of my total knee replacement with mr Kim. Polite, highly knowledgeable gentlemen who involved me in every aspect of my care from referral to discharge. He was open and honest about what to expect and provided an app to help ensure that I was best prepared for my surgery and aftercare. I definitely recommend him for his honesty, professionalism and skill.

After a long time of pain and discomfort, I decided to contact Mr Kim for his advice about a hip replacement. The whole process from the first appointment to leaving the hospital the whole process was seemless and within a few weeks I was feeling much better with no pain.

Very helpful, Mr Kim diagnosed my daughter's knee problem that had baffled our GP for many months, surgery is not considered an option at this time, but possibly in the future.

I cannot speak highly enough of Mr Kim whom I consulted in February regarding both extreme pain in my hip and compromised mobility. He had been recommended to me by another professional on the basis of his skill as a surgeon and on his patient care. This recommendation, if anything, understated his skills. I underwent a total hip replacement in February which has been completely successful. At all stages in the process, Mr Kim could not have been more professional. He was generous with his time, discussing in detail all aspects of the operation and follow-up, offering reassurance and instilling confidence. His skill as a surgeon is undeniable as evidenced by my physical transformation; his positive interaction with his patients is equally undeniable. I remember when I was in hospital, he had been unable to visit on the Friday so he came in on the Saturday, in his own time, and chatted, never once giving me the impression that I had encroached on his weekend. As my knee is now giving trouble, I will have no hesitation in returning to Mr Kim’s fantastic care when the time comes to have a replacement.

My mother, 88, recently underwent a full knee replacement under the care of Mr Kim. From the first consultation Mr Kim's knowledge and professionalism filled us with confidence. I was particularly concerned due to my mother's age. On the day of the operation we arrived at the Spire Hospital in Manchester at 7am. Pre-operative checks were completed by various staff members, including Mr Kim and by 9am she was on her way to the theatre. By 12noon she was back in her room the operation having been successfully completed. The after care from the nursing and physio staff at the Spire was exemplary. Mr Kim visited mother every day she was in the hospital except when he was away on a weekend break in the Lake District and even then he telephoned the hospital the check on her status. It is now four weeks since the operation and my mother is free from pain and recovering well. Many Thanks to Mr Kim for a job very well done.

I had a total hip replacement operation in April 2018 at the Alexandra Hospital. I consider myself very fortunate to have had Mr Kim as my consultant. He is a highly professional surgeon who always makes you feel comfortable whenever you are discussing your surgery. He is informative and helpful with a very pleasant manner. I was absolutely delighted to be walking without crutches only three weeks after my operation. It is wonderful to be able to walk without all the pain I was experiencing before the operation. I highly recommend Mr Kim and all his staff. All the staff at the hospital were lovely.

I have been in the care of Mr Kim over the past few months, and I can confirm that my treatment has been excellent. Mr Kim was clear what my initial diagnosis was and what steps would be need for me to undertake to get back to full fitness. That treatment and exercising plan has been instrumental in me getting back to fitness, If I was to need additional treatment in the future I would not hesitate to contact Mr Kim again.

From first consultation until discharge I received first class service from Mr Kim and the staff at the Spire Hospital West Didsbury... I have had two hip replacements done by him and my mobility has increased.. I found him very pleasant to deal with and he is friendly and caring I also feel that he is a very competent surgeon of the very highest order.. The whole experience was as good as it possibly could be.. To conclude I wish to put on record that I received first class service from Mr Kim and his team..

This was the third operation that Mr Kim had performed.. The previous right hip & knee replacements were a complete success. This left knee replacement , although only a month post op has been a success too. Mr Kim was his usual polite & friendly self. He kept me informed throughout the whole process. I chose not to have any sedationduring the operation & Mr Kim was again informative. I would definitely recommend Mr Kim as a knee & hip surgeeon& in fact have done so. Eight years ago when my Dad was 90 years of age Mr Kim performed a TKR on him. Again Nr Kim was kind,gentle& supportive Once again a big thank you

I cannot praise the staff at the Alexandra Hospital enough.

Dear Mr Kim, just over 12 months ago on 22nd Feb, I was lucky to have you as my surgeon for my total knee replacement. I can’t thank you enough for my fantastic result. I have no pain at all, I can walk with ease. You have certainly given me a new lease of life. I have to say it was money very well spent. You are without doubt an excellent surgeon. Also my 3 nights spent at the Alexander Hospital was excellent too, all the nurses & staff were so kind and caring towards me. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.

Dear Winston, From our first meeting, I felt completely relaxed with you. Your way of proceeding with me inspired my confidence that my operation on both knees would be a success. After 2 years of painful walking and sitting down it took me quite a period of time to regain my confidence. I am very pleased you and I met. Please accept my sincere thanks for all you have done.

Dear Mr Kim, Words cannot express how grateful I am, for your skilled workmanship on my hip, and for understanding how debilitating my hip was prior to surgery.
