Angus’s Bilateral Hip Resurfacing with Dr. Mont 2003 and Dr. Kim 2013
Being a surgeon myself, I knew how important it was to find a doctor who had done hundreds of procedures with very few problems.
I was fortunate to find Dr. Paul Kim right in my own backyard…well, almost; I practice in Toronto and Dr. Kim works in Ottawa, a five hour drive East…but is it ever worth it.
Dr. Kim has the unusual combination of extremely high surgical skills coupled with a deep humility; something that is unfortunately all too rare in our profession.
I am writing this in my hotel room here in Ottawa, five days post-op surgery on my left hip, fully ambulatory using just one crutch. Of course I am tired – this is after all a major surgery! Staples come out next week and then I’m back to T.O. to resume practice the following week.
I’m looking forward to downhill skiing again with my son next winter.
I now have a matched set of Conserve Plus prostheses, my first one – my right hip, done almost ten years ago to the day by Dr. Mont when I was living in the States. It’s still functioning perfectly with no pain and full activity.
I feel extremely fortunate to have been the patient of two such highly skilled surgeons.
Good luck to all of you who are contemplating this wonderful procedure.
