I was extremely satisfied by all aspects of my care with the nurses and my surgeon. The nurses were caring and helpful and my surgeon explained everything that was going to happen to me . He carried out extremely competent surgery on me with the result that I recovered very fast and was walking normally without crutches or walking stick after five weeks.

Our mum had struggled with her right knee and was in severe pain for a period of 12 months. After much consideration she underwent a full knee replacement under the care of Mr Kim at the Alexander Hospital on 26th September 2019. From the initial consultation we were clearly informed of the details pertaining to the operation and advised of what to expect prior to and following the procedure. The timeframe for recovery was provided and an App was made available to support during this journey. We were confident in the decision to proceed with the operation following consultation with Mr Kim as he made us feel at ease from the outset and all of our queries and concerns were answered. We cannot praise Mr Kim enough, 12 weeks after surgery, we can honestly say our mum has full mobility and you would not believe she has had a full knee replacement which is amazing. We would not hesitate in recommending Mr Kim. If you are reading this and considering surgery, we would say do it, it will improve your quality of life no end.

Following a skiing accident in March I injured my right knee. It did not improve with physiotherapy & initially Mr Kim gave me a steroid injection. However, my knee relapsed & a MR scan showed a loose body & possible torn cartilage. My knee kept locking & was extremely painful & I had to use a walking stick. In mid November I had an arthroscopy & a loose piece of cartilage was removed & torn cartilage trimmed. It is wonderful to be without acute pain & I have full movement back in my knee. I would highly recommend Mr Winston Kim.

My experience from initial consultation explanation of MRI scan, different treatment options and outcomes was excellent. The waiting time for my knee replacement operation was only 4 weeks The care in hospital from all the staff especially the nurses ,physiotherapists and OT’s was outstanding. The My Recovery App is an invaluable aid especially during the first few months. Pauline my outpatient physio was very positive and encouraging which kept me on track post op .

I'm a 95 year old man who just had a hip replacement under the care of Mr Kim. My hip pain went away the same day of the surgery. Couldn't believe it. Didn't think anyone would operate on me, having been postponed twice. Very happy with the care the provided by Mr Kim and the hospital. Highly recommend Mr Kim and the Alexandra. If necessary I would be happy to reassure people who are unsure about having it done.

I underwent a hip replacement in December 2018 and a total knee replacement in May 2019 both under the care of Mr Winston Kim. I felt instantly at ease on my first appointment with Mr Kim. He took time to explain all options available to me with regards to my surgery. You are very much a part of the decision making with Mr Kim. Both surgeries have been a great success. After several years of crippling, life changing pain from my hip and knee, I am now well on my way to a full recovery, able to walk pain free again. Post surgery care has also been excellent, again from Mr Kim and the physio team supporting him. I am so pleased I chose Mr Kim for both my joint replacements.

From the moment i meet Mr Kim i was made to feel totally at ease, he understsood fully my frustrtations and identtfyed the problems straight his diagnoses was spot on. He also cleared his diary to undertake the procedure the folowing day, as i was 15 weeks post op and the success of this type of treatment was time sensitive. Both before and after the operation Mr Kim was on hand to talk through what was happening and what to exspect after the operation his calm, approachable and professional manor was ever-dent throughout and made the whole experience acceptable.

I found Mr Kim and his staff to be both competent and caring. At my initial consultation I was given the full details of the diagnosis of my hip problem plus the options available. If I decided on a full right hip replacement this was explained in full plus, of course the possible dangers of undergoing surgery of this nature. I opted for surgery and was admitted to hospital quickly on the date I requested. The surgery and recovery has gone well and I am now pain free thanks to the good care I received from Mr Kim and his team.

He came and spoke to me at each stage of the procedure and daily during my stay in hospital . The procedure has been a great success and at my six week check up Mr Kim was able to show me the before and after X-Ray's demonstrating the necessity for the procedure .

After having very painful and creaky knees for years I decided after my consultation with Mr Kim to take the plunge at 88 years old and have a knee replacement operation. Mr Kim was marvellous and my new knee is very successful. He was very kind and understanding and filled me with confidence. The first time I went to see him I was in a wheelchair and six weeks after the operation I was able to walk in using a stick. Based on my experience I would definitely recommend Mr Kim but wish I had seen him sooner!

Mr Kim was fantastic throughout, from the onset of the first appointment from referral to being discharged from his care 12 months later. The day of surgery in question, I was totally at ease with him and his team members coming to see me before the procedure. His mannerism and passion in what he does is next to none and would certainly be a recommendation to anyone who needs hip or knee surgery. Definately a credit to his profession.

I have recently seen Mr. Kim after suffering from knee pain in my right knee for around 1 year and he has been a consummate professional throughout. He original diagnosed the problem and recommended conservative treatment initially which helped and when the pain persisted after some time he recommended surgery to sort the issue out. He was very clear and concise in his explanation of the issue and I am now on the road to recovery after a long period of time. I really appreciate his calming manner and is always extremely optimistic and realistic with the outcome, he always put my mind at ease when I had doubts. I can tell that Mr. Kim really wants to support the patient and pinpoint the correct issue for overall well being - I felt valued a cared for throughout my entire experience. I cannot think Winston Kim enough as I was really struggling before, now I am able to enjoy some of the things I was missing out on. His secretary Shabnam and entire team I have dealt with at the Alex from physios to imaging consultants have been top notch and I cannot recommend this enough. If I ever have anymore issues in the future I know where I will go. Thank you!
