Dr. Jun S. Kim, a leading spine surgeon in Manhattan, believes that modern spine care should be comprehensive and multidisciplinary. He believes that this comes from a team approach comprised of physiatrists, physical therapists, anesthesiologists, neurologists, radiologists, internists, and pediatricians. Secondly, he believes it is imperative that all non-surgical avenues be explored and trialed before surgery is considered. Lastly, if and when spine surgery becomes necessary, Dr. Kim believes the surgery should be personalized and tailored to the individual patient.
Dr. Kim is one of the greatest Spinal Surgeons that I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. My father arrived from Puerto Rico looking for medical care for an unknown pain on his shoulder that turned out to be related to his spine. From the moment Dr. Kim took my father’s case, he made certain that we understood everything related to his care. The whole process from the initial visit to his surgery took about one month. Now my father is three months post-op and doing better than ever. Thanks Dr. Kim for your compassion and professional care.
I am so thankful for everything Dr. Kim was able to do. Following a variety of injuries, I was left with a herniated disc that was causing me daily pain and barring me from living my life. Dr. Kim went through all of my options thoroughly and thoughtfully. Dr. Kim is patient and knowledgeable and with each appointment explained the details of my progress. It’s immensely changed my life, and I’m extremely grateful.
I was so scared to have surgery despite terrible pain for 9 months. Dr. Kim and his team, who I found attentive, empathetic, and knowledgeable, helped me to take this difficult step forward. I couldn’t be happier with the experience leading up to the surgery, at the hospital after surgery, and the results. I have my mobility and my life back after only 4 weeks post op. It is such an overwhelming relief. I am so grateful for Dr. Kim’s technical and communication skills. I would highly recommend him!
