”As a former triathlete who hasn't been able to walk without sciatic pain or foot numbness for five years, I was at the end of my rope. I live in California and was facing permanent nerve damage, so I sought the opinion of a highly regarded neurosurgeon, who recommended minimally invasive surgery to open my nerve pathway (spinal chord).
Furthermore, he said it will need to be repeated every few years. Since I spend summers in Minnesota, I decided to seek a second opinion, did some research online, and chose Dr. Kim. She looked at my records, particularly the MRI, and suggested that we do complex spinal surgery and do it right the first time, so it would not have to be repeated.
She answered all of my questions without attitude, and never made me feel rushed. Her office staff is super friendly, responsive and accommodating. The staff at the hospital adore her, and I felt very safe there. Three weeks after surgery, I walked Lake of the Isles (2.6 miles) without pain or numbness. Dr. Kim has given me my life back, and for that I will be forever grateful.” - Norm, California
