Nationally-renowned spine surgeon joining The Spine Center at Andrews Sports Medicine
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Andrews Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic Center is excited to welcome Daniel C. Kim, MD, fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon to The Spine Center at Andrews Sports Medicine.
Dr. Kim is a highly respected spine specialist who has gained a national reputation for his surgical skill and expertise. In 2022, Dr. Kim was recognized by the North American Spine Society’s (NASS) SpineLine “20 Under 40” list of the top spine surgeons in the country.
“We are excited to welcome Dr. Daniel Kim to our team of surgeons,” said Lisa Warren, CEO at Andrews Sports Medicine. “Dr. Kim’s extensive knowledge, skill and research in the field of spine health is a key asset to our practice as we continue to build our reputation as one of the world’s industry-leaders in sports medicine and orthopaedic patient care, research and education.”
Dr. Kim is deeply committed to providing the most efficient and optimal quality of care for patients using innovative technology. He was the first spine surgeon in Birmingham, Alabama to offer endoscopic spine surgery – an advanced, state-of-the-art, minimally-invasive surgery designed to provide patients with a quicker recovery and less recurring pain than traditional methods.
“I am thrilled and ready to embark on this new chapter in my career and honored to join the team at Andrews Sports Medicine, a practice that embraces cutting-edge technologies and fosters a collaborative environment,” said Dr. Daniel Kim. “Working alongside a talented team dedicated to optimizing sports medicine and orthopaedic health, I am eager to contribute my expertise to the practice and deliver exceptional patient care,” Kim added.
Dr. Kim goes on to say, “I want my patients who drive an hour or more from rural Alabama to receive the same exact quality of care in my office and operating room as they would if they were in Chicago, New York or Los Angeles.”
Dr. Kim has always been fascinated with the intersection between the health care and technology fields. Growing up in Silicon Valley, he became drawn to the innovation technology offered in the surgical field, particularly in spine care. His early exposure traveling and studying around the country cemented his desire to ensure more efficient and optimal quality care for his patients through the use of evolving technology.
Dr. Kim attended medical school at the University of Kentucky, completed his orthopaedic surgery residency at the University of South Alabama, followed by a spine fellowship at Twin Cities Spine Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. In 2021, Dr. Kim moved to Birmingham, Alabama to pursue a career in orthopaedic surgery.
