Dr. Keunsu Kim treats cervical spine disorders and proficiently performs replacement of cervical disc. He graduated from Yonsei University College of Medicine and completed his master of medicine from Yonsei University. He provides treatment of cervical spine disorder according to the severity of signs and symptoms. His treatment goal is to ease pain, keep you as active as possible, and prevent permanent damage to the spinal cord and nerves. You must consult Dr. Keunsu Kim if you are experiencing any symptoms of cervical spine disorder. Neck pain is amongst the most common signs of a cervical spine problem. You may also have numbness and weakness, as well as discomfort in the head, jaw, shoulders, arms, or legs, and loss of coordination in arms, hands, and fingers. Other issues include loss of bowel and bladder control, decreased coordination or balance, unsteady gait when walking, and difficulties breathing. To diagnose cervical disc disease, Dr. Keunsu Kim first conducts a medical history to determine when your symptoms began, how severe they are, and what causes them to improve or worsen. Dr. Keunsu Kim may first prescribe medications to relieve pain and inflammation, as well as muscle relaxants, to give the body time to recuperate. Corticosteroids can be injected into the cervical spine's joints or the epidural space to reduce pain temporarily. However, if conservative therapy fails to improve, surgery may be required. Post-surgery, Dr. Keunsu Kim will give you specific instructions and most likely prescribe pain medication. Depending on the type of surgery, he will assist the patient in determining when they may resume typical activities such as work, driving, and exercising.
