    62-year-old Returns to Driving Pedi-cab on Marietta Square After Bilateral Knee Replacement Surgery at Resurgens

    Jerry Niemeyer Wins ‘What Does Resurgenize Mean to You' Contest Before knee replacement surgery at Resurgens Orthopaedics, Jerry Niemeyer’s osteoarthritis made it difficult for him to do the things he loves. Only 49 days after surgery last December, Niemeyer and his wife went snowshoeing in Colorado.  By March, only three months after his Dec. 7 bilateral knee replacement surgery, Niemeyer was back driving a Pedi-cab on the Marietta Square at least one evening each weekend. He now plays tennis three times a week, and plays golf as well as competitive softball.  The Kennesaw resident calls his surgery “absolutely life changing” and has high... Continue Reading

    “I am so happy with the care and the results; I just can’t say enough good things about them.”

    Dancing after minimally invasive hip replacement

    For Michelle R. Jenkins, staying active was too important to let a little hip pain stop her.  At age 58 she’s traveled all over the United States, gone skiing in Tahoe, and (perhaps most importantly to her) has a fulfilling career as a nurse practitioner.  Now, just 8 weeks after having her second hip replacement surgery, she’s got no plans to slow down.  For Michelle, her active life included dancing, shopping, baking, gardening, hiking, and so much more.  But after decades of living life to the fullest, hip pain crept in rather abruptly. “We had moved in January [2018], and suddenly the pain got so bad, I could barely walk… It really...

Resurgens Orthopaedics Varied

If you are looking for the best Orthopedic Surgeon for knee or hip replacement Dr. Kim is the one! Dr. Kim replaced both of my knees, 7 years and 8 months ago and was fantastic. I had complete trust in his abilities and excellent care from him as well as Andrea and Josh. Having a good Physical Therapist is also key to and excellent recovery. All the Physical Therapist I talk to highly recommend Dr. Kim and that speaks volumes as well as a highly respected reputation!

Resurgens Orthopaedics Varied

In my search I wanted to find someone not only technically qualified but one with a personality and one with whom I could build a relationship. He performed a total hip replacement on my right hip in mid-Summer 2015, my left hip in December 2017, and total replacement of my right knee in December 2017. In all my interactions with Dr. Kim and his staff they were professional and showed concern for my health and safety. I would recomment Dr. Stephen Kim for your hip/knee orthopedic needs.
