    How was your appointment with Dr. Kim?

    Feb 05, 2020
    Dr. Kim and his team at Dignity Health St. Mary's performed a complete hip replacement for me (male, 65 years old) two weeks ago, and my outcome and recovery has been outstanding. The procedure went very well, with much less pain and discomfort than I anticipated. I was on my feet and using the toilet 6 hours after getting to my quiet and comfortable room. I was home the next day, able to get up and down stairs the same day. I was out of bed by without help two days later, off pain meds (except NSAIDs) after 4 days, and was walking without a cane in a week, getting up to 1 mile in 20 minutes by 10 days post-surgery. My dressing is off and I'm walking normally and visiting the gym 3 days a week. Dr. Kim and his team are first class in every respect - communicative, efficient, thorough, caring, and professional. I give them my very highest recommendation, and my eternal gratitude for restoring me to a pain-free life.
