My surgeon recommended me to Mr Kim after a pneumonectomy, where my left vocal cord was sacrificed, resulting in palsy. This left me with major breathlessness when talking and a very limited vocal response.  An appointment with the Professor was quickly made. He was very comprehensive in his description of the reasons behind my breathlessness and how he intended to cure them.  

After surgery Prof Kim was quickly around to hear the results, which were amazing for me.  He gave a detailed run through of the procedure.  Prof Kim came back to the hospital very late in the evening to check on me which enabled me to return home. During the follow up appointment, he gave a very detailed report on my condition and arranged voice coaching to further aide my recovery.

My breathlessness is gone and my voice has almost returned to pre-op strength.  Professor Kim’s detailed knowledge, kind caring and considerate manner along with his superb experience and skill in surgery comes very highly recommended.

Mr Kim was recommended to me as a result of a suspicious lump being found on my throat. On meeting Mr Kim, I found that he explained to me what the issue was, the treatment required and the various options post operation in a clear concise way.  He is very focused and was very supportive during the lead up to my operation.  After the operation, he was most attentive and nothing was too much trouble for him arriving at all hours of the day or night to ensure that all was well and if I did have questions he was always on hand to provide answers in a re-assuring way.

Dear Professor Kim, 
Thank you very much for performing the grommet insertion so successfully. I can now listen to the radio and watch television, and enjoy conversations with friends, without stress! I appreciate your commitment and conscientious approach so late at the end of a busy week. I was impressed by your robotic surgery lecture. This was an unexpected bonus after the procedure and certainly opened my eyes to the remarkable advances in surgery which have taken place since my involvement.
