“Dr. Bahk is an exceptional doctor and surgeon. From the moment I met him, I knew I could trust him. He explained my condition and the available options we had. Once we discussed everything, I knew the surgery was the best option and that he would take excellent care of me, and I was not wrong. The aftercare was just as he said. The recovery process is better than I expected, and all thanks to Dr. Bahk. I would recommend him to anyone any day.”

“Initially I had trepidations about undergoing a surgical replacement of my left shoulder. My shoulder had limited range of motion and had become painful with even limited normal daily motion, activity and lifting anything above shoulder height. My expectations were that the surgery might relieve some of the pain and return some of my shoulder's functionality. I chose Dr. Bahk and SCOI to perform the procedure because Dr. Bahk has experience performing this particular shoulder replacement surgery and was recommended to me by Dr. Richard Ferkel (who had recently performed a tendon repair surgery on my ankle/foot). Dr. Bahk fully explained what I should expect as a surgical outcome, and what the post-surgery physical therapy and rehab routine would be. The post-surgery discomfort and pain was far less than I had initially anticipated. I was able to begin range of motion therapy soon after removing the slin , and the PT they and rehab regimen has begun to pay significant returns in both increasing my strength, range of motion, and functionality. I have felt almost zero discomfort, as I have followed the prescribed PT and rehab regimen. I couldn't be happier with the post-surgical results and my continued progress in PT/rehab. It was worth the long two and half hour drives from San Bernardino County to SCOI for the pre and post surgical appointments with Dr. Bahk. I am seventy years old, yet I am now confident that I'm on my way to a full recovery and a return to my daily functionality ...and even my backpacking and high altitude hiking activities. I would recommend SCOI and Dr. Bahk to anyone seeking advice on how to repair a disabled shoulder. Thank You, Dr. Bahk.”

“Dr. Michael Bahk performed surgery on my right shoulder on May 28, 2019 to repair a torn rotator cuff. The surgery and recovery went great, and with the help of Physical Therapy (Barley Physical Therapy) I have full function of my shoulder with absolutely no pain. I would recommend Dr Bahk to anyone who needs surgery!”
