Thomas Youm, MD - Testimonials
I was quite nervous about the potential of having surgery for the first time ever and met with various surgeons about my condition. Dr. Youm was comforting and attentive from the start.
I went to three different surgeons for opinions and Dr. Youm was the only surgeon to notice the actual cause of my injury. Where others had seen a “standard” labral tear, Dr. Youm looked at my injury through a cause and effect lens and was able to see the true cause. His focus on fixing the problem, but also preventing future problems, was exactly the type of care I was looking for. I am extremely grateful for his ability to see what others had missed, allowing me to avoid future injuries.
It has been 6 months since my surgery and my hip has never felt better. Before my surgery, I could not walk a block without severe pain, but now I move freely, without pain or worry. I would not only recommend, but I would encourage, anyone with orthopaedic issues to see Dr. Youm. I am extremely grateful for his dedication, approachability, sincerity and talent.
Dr. Thomas Youm is a most special doctor, the finest, most expert surgeon, and above all, a caring, concerned professional who possesses every quality you hope to find in a doctor to whom you have entrusted your life, limb, and well-being. Dr. Youm performed two total replacement surgeries on my knees transforming them from a painful disabled condition to complete unrestricted pain-free movement and activity. For me, as a teacher of ballet, this outcome signified a return to a full teaching schedule for my legs and full satisfaction and contentment for my mind.
I thank Dr. Youm for the excellence of his care-pre- and post-surgery; for always being available to listen-and really hear and understand my worries and questions; for always being ready to discuss concerns and anxieties in a straightforward, patient way.
I am grateful indeed for Dr. Youm’s medical expertise and equally appreciative of the manner in which he performs and practices it and I thank him wholeheartedly.
