Mr Winston Kim
Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
MBChB, MSc, FRCS (Tr and Orth)
I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon and a Specialist hip and knee surgeon. My practice is focused on arthritic conditions of the hip and knee. My main surgical practice is MAKO robot-assisted hip, knee and partial knee replacements, considered by many to be leading-edge technology in hip and knee replacement surgery.
I performed the largest number of robot-arm assisted hip and knee replacements in the UK in 2022 (more than 300 cases of hip, knee and partial replacements performed, MAKO, Stryker, almost equal split of hip and knee replacements). I performed more than 750 robot assisted joint replacements and have performed more than 2000 conventional hip and knee replacements. I was the first in the North of England to perform the triad of robot assisted total hip, partial knee and total knee replacements.
The main focus of my practice is hip and knee replacement surgery. Most of my patients prefer robot-arm assisted total hip (MAKO, Stryker) and robot assisted partial and total knee (MAKO, Stryker) replacements. Other treatments offered include a multidisciplinary assessment, non-operative treatment with tailored physiotherapy, targeted joint injections, minimally invasive surgery, keyhole surgery of the knee.
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, before and after surgery. My practice has a heavy emphasis on the most appropriate decision making, tailored to the individual patient, outcome analysis and feedback from patients and 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.
