Mr Winston Kim
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
MBChB, MSc, FRCS (Tr and Orth)
I am a specialist hip and knee surgeon. My practice is focused on arthritic conditions of the hip and knee. My main surgical practice is robot-assisted hip, knee and partial knee replacements.
I was the first in the North of England to perform the triad of total hip, partial knee, and total knee replacements. I had the honour of performing the largest number of MAKO robot-assisted hip and knee replacements in the North of England and 2nd largest in the United Kingdom (2021 data) and have performed more than 600 robot-assisted hip, knee, and partial replacements to date (experience of > 2000 joint replacements performed). The main focus of my practice is robot-arm assisted total hip (MAKO, Stryker) and robot-assisted partial and total knee (MAKO, Stryker) replacements.
Robot-assisted hip and knee replacements are the main focus of my practice. Other treatments offered include a multidisciplinary assessment, non-operative treatment with tailored physiotherapy, targeted biological injections, and minimally invasive surgery, including injections and keyhole surgery of the knee. Examples of conditions treated include meniscal (soft cartilage tears), cartilage defects and ACL injuries of the knee, and early hip and knee arthritis.
After graduating from the University of Aberdeen in 1996, I completed my orthopaedic training in the North West rotation, obtaining the FRCS (Orth). My year-long sub-specialist training was in Vancouver at Clive Duncan's Unit at UBC, Canada. I was the recipient of the British Orthopaedic Foundation Travelling Fellowship award, visiting the world-renowned Mayo Clinic, Minnesota and the Hospital of Surgery (HSS) in New York, USA.
I have an amazing team around me, who will respond promptly and compassionately to any queries before and after consultations or surgery. My practice has a heavy emphasis on the most appropriate decision making, tailored to the individual patient, outcome analysis, and feedback from patients from a multidisciplinary team. The goal is to ensure the best possible care and outcome for each patient, every time. I have invested heavily in structure and staff to facilitate these aspirations.
