Thomas Youm, MD - Testimonials
Dr. Youm is the greatest he did my reconstructive surgery on my knee and it was successful. I highly recommend him for everyone.
I had a high tibial osteotomy in both legs to prevent osteoarthritis of the knee and potential need for a total knee replacement down the line. The surgery was necessary due to a genetic deformity that put undue pressure on my inner knees. Dr. Youm was not only an excellent and skilled surgeon but he also listened carefully to my questions and addressed my concerns with care. He has a great bedside manner and was flexible in working with me during recovery. I would wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Youm to a friend (and have) because I trust that he has the right combination of skill, talent, training, expertise, and humility. He sees himself as a partner in his patient’s care. He definitely understood that I could play a key role in my recovery and respected my own judgement about my body’s signals.
Before surgery with Dr. Youm, I was walking with a cane and in pain every day. Now after hip arthroscopy, I am back to where I was before my injury. I’m physically active and I consider the surgery 100% effective. Dr. Youm’s level of care has been excellent throughout, from first consultation, through surgery, post-surgical care and (two years later) final visit. Dr. Youm has provided excellent medical care and has a great personable manner that has alway put me at ease. He respected my desire for information, my ability to make decisions, and when I was in pain he always listened and took that seriously.
I would highly recommend Dr. Youm to anyone needing an opinion and/or surgery. In fact, I found Dr. Youm because of a recommendation from a patient.
Dr. Youm restored my confidence in my physical capabilities. I had two major issues (hamstring and shoulder injuries) that he fixed and now I am a lot more comfortable physically and mentally. What stands out about Dr. Youm is the time he spent with me, the quality of his care, his post-operative care, and the professionalism of his support staff. They were outstanding. If you have a medical plan to accommodate Dr. Youm’s services or can afford it, he is highly recommended.
Dr. Youm is an expert and a true professional. As a young adult male working a manual labor job, my life was not pleasant on a daily basis having two bad hips. Surgery was hard but the outcome was better than I imagined. My hips do not bother me daily anymore. Dr. Youm expressed personal interest and sincerity. The most important thing to him was and is my quality of life.
The surgery Dr. Youm performed on me was life changing. I had severe pain in my back that was prohibiting me from enjoying time with my young children. After he performed hip surgery, all of my issues were gone. I now enjoy my kids and can play sports, give them baths, and work out/exercise without any pain. Dr. Youm’s care throughout the entire process was superb. You can tell he genuinely cares and is concerned about your concerns. I would tell a friend looking for an orthopaedic surgeon, “Here’s his number…You won’t regret it!”
