Thomas Youm, MD - Testimonials
I feel so fortunate to have chosen Dr. Youm for my total knee replacement surgery. I’m walking faster and further than I have in years, and it’s only been 2.5 months! I did not expect to feel this good so soon. Dr. Youm is talented and passionate about his work, and I highly recommend him.
A+!!! I was misdiagnosed for elbow pain by another Orthopedic surgeon, and felt hopeless and dismayed when I arrived at Dr. Youm’s office.
He was immediatelyable to diagnose my rare condition, and came up with the proper course of treatment.
Dr. Youm even made it to the office just 2 days after Hurricane Sandy to ensure I was healing properly after surgery.
He is a brilliant diagnostician and his bedside manner cannot be beat.
I am thrilled to finally feel better, and cannot recommend him highly enough!
I underwent knee arthroscopy with Dr. Youm. The surgery allowed me to play basketball, hike, golf, play baseball, and resume a physically active lifestyle without limitations. What stands out with Dr. Youm is the quality of care and efficiency of the procedure. I have already recommended a friend to Dr. Youm who has had surgery and successful treatment.
Last year, when I was diagnosed with a complete labral tear in my right hip and also FAI, I was devastated. I had been an avid distance runner for years, and the pain I had developed was so severe that I was afraid I would never race again. Thankfully, I met Dr. Youm. In April of 2011, he performed arthroscopic surgery to repair the tear. In November of 2011, after 6 months of rehab that Dr. Youm helped coach me through, I completed the NYC ING Marathon – my fourth. My surgical hip didn’t offer a single complaint during any of the 26.2 miles. I can offer no better testimonial than that.
Dear Sir / Madam,
I cannot say enough about how wonderful I feel Dr. Youm is. I was referred to him after sustaining another knee injury and being told that I am too old to continue my active lifestyle. I was so discouraged and not even able to walk when I met Dr. Youm. His bedside manner handled my challenging personality and gave me hope that post-op I would be able to resume the lifestyle I am accustom to living. He took the time to thoroughly explain the surgery I would and what the recovery process would entail. He left nothing to chance or surprise and I left his office knowing I had found my surgeon. I was on crutches for 8 weeks total and my recovery was just as Dr. Youm said it would be. I had surgery March 30th and 6 weeks after coming off crutches I was able to take my bike out for a 20 mile ride. I have since been able to downhill ski and participate in an indoor triathlon in January and hoping to do several more this summer. I owe my ability to continue my active lifestyle to Dr. Youm and am thankful for him and all he has done for me! Trust me when I say that I am not an easy consumer to please as I have worked in the medical field for 25 years and demand a lot from those whom I seek medical care from. Dr. Youm not only stepped up to the plate he exceeded any expectation that I had of him. I highly recommend Dr. Youm and his colleagues for any and all of your orthopedic surgical needs.
