Dr. S. Tim Yoon's Ratings
I am a young male that suffered from a very harsh herniated disc in my lower back. I was very skeptical towards back surgery at first, but after meeting with Dr. Yoon we both agreed that it wasn't getting any better after several alternate methods were attempted. Surgery was my only option. I had Surgery in February 2015 and 7 month later I can not be more thankful for what Dr. Yoon was able to do. I would recommend Dr. Yoon to anyone suffering spinal/back issues. He was a savior to me as I thought things could never get better.
Dr. Yoon was the third surgeon I went to for an opinion. I knew immediately I wanted him to do my surgery. He is kind, he listens, and did a fantastic job. I can't say enough for his staff & the hospital as well!
Dr. Yoon performed surgery on my husband's back in March. Right after surgery, even the same day, my husband felt so much better. Before the surgery my husband slept standing up or posibly sleeping flat on a hard floor. He could not hold our 2 year old or infant. 6 weeks after the surgery my husband's life has changed. He feels great and we owe this to Dr. Yoon. Dr. Yoon answered all my questions before the surgery, one even while the surgery took place and afterwards too. I thought this surgery wouldake my husband feel better but had no idea that it would change our lives because now he is 100% better because of the surgery Dr. Yoon performed. Lastly the scar that is on my husband's back is minimal considering what was done and is fading well. I highly recommend Dr. Yoon. Our 2 year old little girl no longer says "Daddy's back hurt" because of Dr. Yoon. The surgery he did on my husband has changed our lives for the much better. He's awesome!!
Three months ago Dr Yoon performed a laminectomy, discectomy, cyst removal and fusion of L-4 / L-5. My spinal problems turned serious about a year and a half ago when my mobility became affected. Numbness down my right leg coupled with foot drop and what felt like shin splints became quite painful - to the point where I needed crutches to alleviate the pain and get around. I was taking ibuprophine type drugs for years and about a month and a half before surgery on the advice of my local physician, added muscle relaxers and oxy codone.
Fortunately these drugs got me to and through the surgery. At this point I take 2 tylenol in the AM and PM and that's it. I'm a fairly active 70 year old man and am now able (albeit with caution - at the risk of incurring my wife's and Dr. Yoon's rath) to resume most of my pre-surgery activities, operating tractors, 4 wheelers, and various farm equipment. Dr. Yoon did an outstanding job - HE IS THE MAN - Thank you Dr. Yoon, Liz, and staff.
I had a cervical Laminoplasty to treat Cervical Spondylosis Myelopathy 3 months ago. It is my greatest fortunate to have Dr. Yoon to operate on me. He is a dedicated and talented surgeon. Immediate after the surgery, muscles tightness of my lower legs disappeared. Two months after the surgery, tingling and numbness of my both hands had gone. By reviewing his bio, I learnt that he is an outstanding physician and has won the ISSLS awards twice. He was very caring and knowledgeable. He patiently listened my concerns and answered all my questions. I was well informed on all the plus and minus of different treatment options. I deeply appreciate his time, efforts, and kindness. His nurse, Liz, is also very friendly and helpful. I have been recovering rapidly and am doing well now. I cannot thank him enough for helping me regain my normal life. THANKS AGAIN DR. YOON and YOUR MEDICAL TEAM!!
I have “Cervical Spondylosis Myelopathy,” and I had my surgery done on June 30th 2014. I had spinal fusion surgery on my C4-C7. I am 57 years old. Before my surgery, I was experiencing tingling and numbness in my feet, hands, and fingers. Before surgery I was so, afraid because my MRI showed that my spinal cord was badly twisted and barely showing by a thread. I didn’t think I would make it. Dr. Yoon is a wonderful and gifted doctor. Dr. Yoon listened to ALL my concerns, and he took his time and explained all options that were available to me. As, he sat and listened to ALL my concerns, I could tell that he really cared, and is a very warm and caring doctor. I want to thank Dr. Yoon a wonderful and GREAT doctor for giving me my life back. I also want to thank Liz and Donita for being so kind and patient with me, and for always responding so quickly to me needs. Oh, by the way I am doing GREAT, no tingling no numbness in my feet, hands, nor fingers. Thanks to Dr. Yoon a GREAT and WONDERFUL Doctor!
I had L5-S1 spinal fusion surgery in Sept of 2013. I came to Dr. Yoon for a 2nd opinion and I am so happy I did. I had a great experience not only with Dr. Yoon and his staff at his office but also at the Emory Spine hospital where I had my surgery. Top-notch people who truly care. I recommend Dr. Yoon highly and would send any family or friend to see him. He used a minimally invasive procedure and my recovery was very fast. I am healed and fused and couldn't be happier!
Dr. Yoon performed a spinal fusion and spinal lamina removal on me 6 weeks ago today. I researched, debated and saw several surgeons prior to deciding that Dr. Yoon would perform this operation on me. I am 67 years old and my personal physician recommended him to me. I am extremely satisfied with the results. My personal physician told me that Dr. Yoon, unlike many other surgeons, would treat me like a 21 year old man. In a nutshell, this meant that he would not give me a "quickie" since my life expectancy is naturally less than a younger man. I am convinced that he took care of any and all issues and there will be no more "recalls" because he missed bone spurs, etc. that the MRI did not reveal. I am told that Dr. Yoon is the "go to Doctor" to repair mistakes made by other less qualified surgeons in the area. I do not find that hard to believe as his demeanor, manner and qualifications are 10+ on a scale of 10, with 10 being the highest. Needless to say, in my opinion he is the BEST.
