Patient reviews for Mr Winston Kim



Hip Replacement
"I only have the highest highest praise for the service Mr Kim and his team have provided for me. For several years, mainly due to my relatively young age, I had been dissuaded by my own GP from seeking any form of permanent treatment for an injury related arthritis . As any sufferer knows the constant pain becomes life changing so at 52 I was fortunate enough to consult with Mr Kim. His extremely pleasant gentle yet extremely knowledgeable advice and treatment saw me receiving a new hip joint in Sept 2016. The difference in my life now is truly amazing and my day to day life is soooo different. Words are not enough to express my gratitude and admiration for Mr Kim's skill dedication and above all his 'bedside manner'. He is a remarkable man. Please do not delay any longer. He will transform your day to day life. A top top man!! Thank you very much

Ian Holley.

First class
"There are many excellent orthopaedic surgeons in Greater Manchester. There is, for me, however a new kid on the block, Winston Kim. He has treated my wife and me both under the NHS and privately. He demonstrates all that is good in a surgeon and with a charm that would be difficult to better. From the first consultation to care after surgery he is attentive, professional and considerate.
All the staff at the Alex are highly competent and friendly. A particular mention for his secretary Shabnam,nothing is too much trouble and who demonstrates the same interest and care as Mr. Kim.

Complete Knee Placement
"When I first found out that I needed a knee replacement, I was very apprehensive about the operation. Fortunately, Mr Kim explained the procedure throughly to my wife and I, quickly putting our mind at ease. He was there whenever we needed him before the operation and by the time the day came, I felt much more at ease. The operation went extremely well and Mr Kim and all his staff were amazing in the days after the op.

With a positive attitude and lots of advice from Mr Kim, I recovered extremely quickly and was soon walking around like normal. All in all, the experience was much, much easier than I'd ever expected, and this was all down to the help and support of Mr Kim.

ACL Reconstruction
"I suffered a completely torn ACL as well as damage to the meniscus after an incident playing football. I've had Dr Kim for 2 surgeries now, the first being keyhole to trim the meniscus and investigate the severity of the ACL damage, and the second to reconstruct the ACL.

Both operations have been a success. It has been 6 weeks since the ACL reconstruction and I cannot believe how quickly my knee has recovered. Judging by my current progress I am very optimistic that within a year I can return to the same level of fitness as before the injury.

Dr Kim is extremely approachable, friendly and has the ability to put you at ease. He doesn't sugar coat anything, and made me aware of the disadvantages and possible complications of the surgery before allowing me to make a decision. Overall I really couldn't be any happier with the treatment and consultation I've received and would recommend his services without hesitation.

ACL Knee Operation
"Nine months after my ACL knee operation I experience great recovery of my knee and its functionality. The physiotherapy program set by Alexandra hospital physio team has been successful to a degree that I am all but 100% back to my daily and sport activities. In my own words... continuity with slow and gradual increase in post operation excercise is the key to good recovery.

Thank you Dr Kim for professionally executed operation and the passion you have shown in your work from initial consultation, operation and to post-op examinations!

Total Knee Replacement
"After struggling for over two years and being told I was too young at 57 years of age I saw Mr Kim. He quickly diagnosed that I was now " bone on bone" and I had my operation February 2016.
I have regained my quality of life. I can now continue to enjoy walking holidays and my whole life has improved.
Mr Kim was very caring and approachable and encouraged me to ask questions. It felt easy to trust him as he is very knowledgeable. He genuinely cares particularly about younger patients.
I note that he is very keen on infection prevention and uses hand gel between each patient in his outpatient clinic.

Total hip replacement
"I cannot thank Mr Kim enough. I have always found him to be caring, friendly, understanding and totally professional. After many years of discomfort and walking with a severe limp (one leg was about one and a half inches shorter than the other) I now have a new lease of life. Six months after my operation I can now walk long distances with no problem and both legs are now the same length! I would recommend Mr Kim without any hesitation."

Knee athroposcopy and synevectomy
"I had pain and inflammation in my right knee, the result of an old skiing accident that I aggravated by running the Manchester 10 k about 6 years ago. since then it became progressively worse, in my worst moments I even considered a knee replacement.

I got a referral to Dr Kim, who I found to be thoroughly professional and informed. He explained the procedure and the follow up. A few months later I had the scheduled operation, again I found the whole process well organized and professional. I am now, 2 months later, almost fully recovered and can already feel the benefit in my right knee.

I would thoroughly recommend Dr Kim.

Hip Arthroscopy
"I was referred to Mr Kim in July after I was diagnosed with a labral tear. Mr Kim gave me the option to have a hip arthroscopy to repair the tear. He explained in great detail the pro's and cons of having the operation and after a lot of consideration, I decided to go ahead. On the morning of the operation, I was a bit apprehensive. Mr Kim came round and completely put my mind at ease. I can honestly say that the whole experience was a lot better than I thought it would be, I had no pain, even on the day of the surgery. I followed Mr Kim's instructions with regards to the exercise bike and leg exercises. Now 6 weeks on, I have completely recovered and the operation was a great success.
I would highly recommend Mr Kim, he is a true professional, caring, extremely good at what he does and always has a smile on his face. He has changed my life back to how it was before my injury and for that, I could not be more grateful.
Thank you Mr Kim!

Total Hip Replacement
"Before my hip replacement I did a lot of research into the best surgeon to do the operation. In particular I needed someone who would listen and take account of my particular concerns about one aspect of the operation.
Since a previous prostate operation, urinary retention and subsequent traumatic catheterisation I was anxious to use any possible way of avoiding a catheter.
A urology consultant at UHSM advised me that Tamsulosin shortly before and after the operation might enable me to avoid retention. Mr Kim was very helpful in organising this for me at Spire Hospital and I was relieved to find that, like the operation itself, it was successful and no catheter was necessary. Mr Kim explained everything very clearly, visited me before the operation and several time afterwards. I was really well looked after and can now walk properly again. I cannot speak too highly of his care.

Left knee operation
"I suffered a knee injury playing football in May & after a frustrating period following a mis-diagnosis by another medical practitioner, I was referred to Mr. Kim some 2 months later. Following an MRI scan he diagnosed a large medial meniscal tear & partial ACL tear, & operated on my knee towards the end of August. Less than 2 months after surgery, I have been out for my first run since the Spring, & my knee feels great. Mr. Kim is highly professional, knowledgeable & delivers results - I can't thank him enough."

Thank you so much
"I am 72 years of age and suffered with a knee problem for some time. As the pain was so bad I visited Dave Roberts physiotherapy clinic and saw Mr Jack Dixon. I am eternally grateful to him for referring me to Mr Winston Kim. Mr Kim explained the proposed surgical procedure to repair a large bucket handle lateral meniscus tear. Following surgery and seven weeks later I am amazed at the difference it has made to my life."

Hip Arthroscopy & Hip Replacement
"I thought I had a groin strain and went to see my physio, he referred me to Mr Kim and at the tender age of 41 I was diagnosed with hip dysplasia, it answered a lot of questions about historic pain and issues. There was considerable damage to my right hip and Mr Kim performed a replacement, I also had an arthroscopy on the left hip to repair a labral tear eighteen months later. Mr Kim was fantastic the whole time I was under his care and I was recently discharged with a smile on my face. Mr Kim was always professional, he always had the time to explain thoroughly what the issues were and he also helped me at times when I was worried. I am now in better shape than I have ever been, thanks not only to the procedures themselves, but also due to the support from both him and his PA Shabnam."

Full Knee Replacement
"I am 64 years of age. In September 2014 I had my left knee replaced by Dr.Winston Kim. I had endured years of agonising pain through the loss of cartilage from sport in my younger days. Arthritis and the constant rubbing of bone-on-bone causing the damage. The pain became so unbearable I sort help. The first meeting put me in the know completely of my situation. Provided me with total confidence in what would take place. From the moment I woke in the recovery room I have had no pain; NONE !! Those tear making movements no longer exist for me and I can walk , climb the stairs , up and down , and live pain free."
