Advanced Surgical Techniques/Meticulous Surgical Approaches
An improvement and advancement in the surgical techniques in the foot including newer and safer implants allow more speedy recovery/return to work and a minimal postoperative pain following foot surgery. Dr Kim is at the forefront of using these safer technologies from around the world, to improve the outcome of surgery and patients’ satisfaction.
Dr Kim offers less invasive, meticulous dissection, a smaller incision and gentle tissue handling that enable an easy and short recovery, with results that are more optimal. See “before and after photos”
Minimal Postoperative Pain and Fast Recovery
The advanced prostheses used by Dr. Kim allows little damage to the surrounding tissues and this allows a minimal postoperative pain as well as fast recovery. Although pain is subjective and differs person to person, it is not uncommon to see that patients report a minimal discomfort postoperatively.
It is also our promise that all patients receive customised postoperative care. Patients are also given with Dr Kim’s direct number so they can contact him directly for any emergency cases after surgery.
For some patients, general anaesthesia is a risk or a financial burden. Many procedures at Gold Coast Foot Surgery can be safely performed under local anaesthetics with a sedation on a day case basis. During your appointment, Dr. Kim will explain pros and cons of each anaesthetic for your procedure.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner
