Dr Youm's Testimonials
After years of increasing pain and reduced mobility in both shoulders I was refered to Dr. Youm. The doctor performed reverse Arthroplasty on both shoulders in 2018.The pain is gone and mobility in both is greatly improved. Dr. Youm, his staff and the staff N.Y.U. Langone were clear, caring and very efficient. This is a great choice for joint injuries or repair needs.
Dr. Youm performed stem cell therapy on my left shoulder and healed the biceps tear ("SLAP tear") and minor rotator cuff tear in my left shoulder. I went from being in dire pain with limited mobility before the treatment and now I have full range of motion without pain. I thought Dr. Youm was upfront and thorough with the expectations and the process of the treatment. I would definitely consider stem cell treatment as an alternative to surgery and I felt I achieved about 98% of the strength back in my biceps and NO PAIN.
For years I was unable to sit for more than 5 minutes w/o pain. After many different Dr. and Pt and MRsI Cat scans and x-rays, the pain progressively become worse, I suffered for years. I finely found Dr. Youm and after 5min and one more test he was able to diagnose the torn labrum in my left hip. He preformed a Hip Arthroscopy and I have been pain free for the last 4 years. I will always recommend him, I travel from LI to see him in Manhattan and always satisfied w/ my care. His office staff is very friendly and through. I wish more Doctors were like him. He always made me feel I was his most important patient in his pratice.
Dr. Youm is a miracle worker. I had a torn labrum, tendon issues, and a multitude of other problems after being hit by a car. Not only did he make my hip better than before but he stuck with me through the long and arduous process that comes with insurance claims. He was able to explain to me exactly what surgery would be like, how my recovery would go and even before that he gave me options that would ease my pain that weren't a part of his practice. Dr. Youm is absolutely the best and I couldn't have asked for a better doctor.
Dr. Youm restored my confidence in my physical capabilities. I had two major issues (hamstring and shoulder injuries) that he fixed and now I am a lot more comfortable physically and mentally. What stands out about Dr. Youm is the time he spent with me, the quality of his care, his post-operative care, and the professionalism of his support staff. They were outstanding. If you have a medical plan to accommodate Dr. Youm’s services or can afford it, he is highly recommended.
Dr. Youm’s surgery helped me SUBSTANTIALLY! I was very please with the arthroscopic surgery on my left shoulder. I had been experiencing substantial pain for several months and the outcome was a complete success. This is my 2nd surgery with Dr. Youm (first one was the right shoulder). I find his care outstanding and would not hesitate to recommend him. Great bedside manner, great treatment from start to finish. Dr. Youm is personable and his staff is outstanding. I have already recommended Dr. Youm and would gladly do so again.
The shoulder surgery by Dr. Youm was the best thing I ever did. Before the surgery, I was in pain 24/7. And also, I was not able to sleep, not able to lift heavy objects, or even light weights in the gym. I have never met a more caring and attentive doctor (surgeon) than Dr. Youm. He listens as well as gives advice and explained everything that happened in laymens terms. He is also very easy to talk to and joke with. Go (run!) to Dr. Youm. He is the best doctor!
I tore my labrum, rotator cuff, and upper biceps playing beach volleyball. I was told that the only option is to fix this was with a surgery. In 4 months after a stem cell injection by Dr. Youm, the pain has almost disappeared and I started weight training. Happy to be back in the game in a few months. Dr. Youm was very straightforward and kept my expectations realistic. Also he spent a good amount of time educating me on the cat scan of what my situation was about. Overall, very pleased by the staff. If you have the money to spend, definitely give this a shot before you take the surgery path.
