I had injured my hip several years ago and was not able to get past the pain and restriction, even with physical therapy. I finally had X-rays and an MRI which showed two tears, arthritis and a bone spur. I consulted two well known surgeons in Naples Fl who told me I was ‘too old’ to have arthroscopic hip surgery. They just wanted to replace my hip. I was referred to Dr. Youm and after reviewing my case, he told me he would do the surgery. After surgery he told me he was able to repair all of the damage, as well as loosen a restrictive tendon. I was surprised how well I felt after the surgery. There was minimal pain and only in the area of the incisions. I was instructed to use the crutchesfor a month, even though after a few days I felt I could walk without them. I was
amazed. I am now 2 months into PT and progressing very well. My PT is also amazed at the speed of my progress.
Dr. Youm a wonderful job. He is one of the most pleasant and attentive doctors that I have ever met.
