I then met Dr. Kwon, he knew right away what my problem was and told me how it needed to be fixed. I finally felt like I had an answer to my problems. I underwent spinal surgery (fusion from L4 to S1) and that terrible pain is gone. I have my life back and continue to improve everyday.
Dr Kwon is very personable and knowledgeable. He is a joy to meet with and never rushes you through your appointment. If you need an evaluation or surgery, you couldn't choose a better doctor. Thank you Dr. Kwon!
After 4 months of resting and cortisone shots, I had enough. I was recommended to see Dr. Kwon by Dr. Rainville. As soon as I met Dr. Kwon in his office, it was clear to me that he was the Dr. for me. He clearly explained what he was going to do, and what I was to expect pre-op, and post-op. One could clearly see that he was full of energy and passion for what he does, and he had given me tremendous confidence in his ability and I was ready for surgery.
So after surgery was done, he stopped by to see me in recovery and said everything went well and you can go home in a few minutes. A week and a half later, I was back at work. Three weeks later, I feel like my old self again. Dr. Kwon gave me my life back. Dr. Kwon is a true professional, extremely talented and a dedicated surgeon, and I for one would highly recommend him for surgery on your back. Thanks Very Much Dr. Kwon, you are the BEST!
We love Dr. KWON...
Doctors are very intelligent but often lack empathy and genuine bedside manner. This guy is the total package. He has love and respect for his patients which unfortunately happens to be a rarity. I love this guy and you will too.
Besides his tremendous surgical skills, he is extremely personable, an excellent listener, and easy to talk to. What more could you ask for?
So, as I gradually fall to pieces, I shall be counting on Brian Kwon to keep patching me back together. The man is an artist. A+
I cant say enough great things about Dr. Kwon. I couldnt stand up or walk for more than 10 mins without getting the numbing/burning so bad that it forced me to have to sit or squat down to temporarily relieve the pain.
After the surgery, I was out of work for three days, and within a weeks time, I felt 95% better. I am one month recovered and I am back in the gym and able to get back to my active routine again. I cant thank him enough and I would recommend this procedure to anyone with a similar situation.
Dr. Kown is the man! Thank you!
I probably should have had the surgery at least a year ago.
It was also a pleasure dealing with Dr. Kwon. Great guy.
I cannot say enough (positive) about my experience with Dr. Kwon and all of the individuals who cared for me when I underwent surgery. As a nurse myself (with 30+ years of experience and still idealistic) I understand the challenges of providing excellent care and it does my heart such good to be able to say that I received excellent and compassionate care throughout my experience at NEBH. To be injured on the job at a large teaching hospital was a devastating experience (being a "workers comp" patient places one in the midst of world of bureaucracy, red tape and potentially prejudicial treatment, that is difficult to navigate even for those of us inside the system of healthcare!). I was so impressed by the care and compassion I received from all of the nurses as well as impressed with my anesthesiologist (again, excellent job done!). Consequently, I would highly recommend family and friends to Dr. Kwon and NEBH.
I knew the surgery was a great success upon my discharge....after 6 months of being unable to sit without unbearable pain, I was able to sit comfortably; it felt miraculous!!! Finally, I can sit and have dinner with my husband and son not to mention that I can stand and walk without pain again....before my microdiscectomy for nerve root compression I had a horrible quality of life and now I'm looking forward to returning to work as an Interventional Radiology Nurse and have already resumed restoration of my antique home and work as an artist. All of those who cared for me have my deep gratitude and apologies for not being able to recall all of your individual names!
