After studying and training on both the east and west coasts, I chose to return home to practice medicine. I am a general orthopaedic surgeon with specialty interests in sports medicine and joint replacement. When I started practicing as an orthopaedic surgeon in 2001, there was one obvious choice of which practice to join – South Bend Orthopaedics. This is my hometown, and I believe that it is a wonderful place to live and work. I feel a great responsibility and a unique, shared connection to the people of Michiana. It is an honor and a privilege to play a role in the health and well-being of people’s lives.

SBO Patient 12/16

Dr. Kim was very pleasant, personable, and remembered my name, situation, recent changes in my life, where I worked, etc. He was very friendly as well as very knowledgeable about the surgery I was going to have. I have the utmost confidence in him and would recommend him to anyone for their surgery.

I would recommend and trust Dr. Kim with any orthopedic issue. He replaced both of my hips and I am pain free and able to live my life again. Jackie should be commended for her consistent kindness and cheerful attitude. Perhaps consider giving her a raise or at the very least some sort of recognition.

SBO Patient 12/15

I recommend Dr. Kim to EVERYONE!!!!!!!  He is a down to earth Dr. that explains things in simple terms.  One of his analogies for a question I had was, 'If the car is on fire you don't worry about the taillight being out.'  It was a great immediate visual and it was funny!  He always tells me that I am more hard on myself than he could ever be!  I am 100% confident in this Dr.  He too always remembers things about me that makes me feel important!

Dr. Henry Kim is the BEST doctor/surgeon that I have ever had.

SBO Patient 8/15
I wanted to see Dr Balint when I first called, however, he doesn't handle hips anymore. So, my next choice was Dr Kim as I had heard very good comments about him. I was not disappointed. He was thorough, pleasant and made me feel at ease. If I couldn't see Dr Balint, I'm glad Dr Kim is there.

SBO Patient 4/15

Dr. Kim is very skilled and efficient.  However I think he was very busy and I did feel a little rushed.  He explained things very quickly.  I felt like he could have given me some info on what to do at home to improve or protect my condition.

SBO Patient 3/15

Dr. Kim and his staff have always been outstanding when treating me.

SBO Patient 2/15

Due to prior experiences with other physicians specialties at South Bend Ortho I was reluctant to be referred to a specialist there. I had issues with the wait times and time spent in the exam room with these physicians. I received good care from them.  Dr. Kim however was excellent, easy to talk with, personable, provided stellar care and schedules his time excellently.  I highly recommend his services to others.

SBO Patient 2/15

He may be a good doctor, but my overall experience at this facility will keep me from recommending them to anyone else.

SBO Patient 2/15

Calling me at home around 8:30 PM, taking about my problem was above and beyond anything.

SBO Patient 10/14

Dr. Kim is excellent in his descriptions of the problem, the treatment needed (or not) and what the future treatments may be.  He takes the time to explain everything and answers all questions with great knowledge.  He does not rush you out of the appointment, or make you feel like you are 'taking too much of his time'

SBO Patient 7/14
The doctor I chose was the main reason I came to your facility. I was not disappointed. I feel secure in the hands of Dr. Kim

SBO Patient 7/14
Everything went well.

SBO Patient 7/14
I have confidence in Dr. Kim. I believe he is very professional and probably a good surgeon. He was not very personal. He kept calling me 'sir' instead of my name. He would dismiss some of the things I would say. Again, I have every confidence in Dr. Kim. This could just be who he is. I had just met him for the first time. I am looking forward to seeing him again soon.

SBO Patient 7/14
I have referred friends/relatives to Dr Kim since 2012.

SBO Patient 7/13

Dr. Kim is the best.

SBO Patient 6/14
I am constantly recommending Dr. Kim to everyone speaking of orthopedic issues! He is a phenomenal doctor and puts things in VERY easy to understand terminology! He ALWAYS gives me the ultimate decision in my care! He also always recalls something personal to make me feel like I'm more than just the next number on his patient list! I have total trust and confidence in Dr. Kim and that means A LOT to me!! I don't have that same confidence in other doctors!

SBO Patient 5/14
I have recommended Dr. Kim to numerous family, friends, and acquaintances.

SBO Patient 5/14
Very good visits.

SBO Patient 5/14

Dr Kim is punctual and skilled. This was my second hip operation and like the other perfect. He has already seen my mom based on my recommendation and I expect my brother will see him for hip surgery too.

SBO Patient 5/14
Dr. Kim is very dedicated to his practice and it shows in the level of care he provides.

SBO Patient 5/14
Dr. Kim is THE best. I have 100% confidence in him.

SBO Patient 5/14
Very good.

SBO Patient 5/14
It appeared as though he (the doctor) isn't aware of how long it takes to get in to see him. He said if another flare-up occurs, come in and see him. Well, we're back to scheduling for situations that require immediate attention. How can one drop in to get medical attention (let's say for severe pain) when they are scheduled for an appointment a month or two away?

SBO Patient 5/14
Dr Kim is excellent. If there is a problem it is that he always seems to be needing to get out of the door. He explains things well and listens to concerns.

SBO Patient 3/13
There is not another orthopedic I trust than the one I currently see.

SBO Patient 2/14
Dr. Kim is the consummate professional. He is also very personable and doesn't talk down to his patients. He is very detail oriented and expects his staff to follow his example. I would highly recommend Dr. Kim to anyone having a knee replacement.

SBO Patient 2/13
Very good.

SBO Patient 12/13
Dr. Kim is very good. I work with him and some of his lack of explanation might have been our professional relationship I know he is very competent at what he does or I wouldn’t go to him.

SBO Patient 11/13
A good experience.

SBO Patient 11/13
Dr. Kim is so good at explaining what is going on, and showing that he cares about my reaction and my ability to perform my daily activities, he is very good at this. He remembers me and my Cubs fan malady (just being one) every time, even though I come in rarely.

SBO Patient 1/14
Only Doctor I've ever had that calls a few days after treatment to see how I'm doing.

SBO Patient 1/14
I really like the way I was treated at SBO.

SBO Patient 1/13
I have been receiving care from SBO for over 36 yrs. I am truly impressed by the level of care that Dr. Kim provides. He is the first Dr. who has ever called me after a visit to see how I was progressing after the treatment. I will definitely recommend his services.
