In 1993, Dr. John Shim began practicing orthopedics and spine surgery in the Tampa Bay area. Since that time, he has performed thousands of successful, complex spinal surgeries. He has built a successful practice from taking the time to listen to his patients, offering an office environment that focuses on outstanding customer service and efficiency, and providing patients with expert recommendations and treatment. As a fellowship trained spine surgeon, his training and expertise is at providing surgical management of orthopedic and spinal related disorders. However, Dr. Shim’s philosophy and approach is a very conservative one. In many cases, surgery can avoided.
Our focus remains on providing the most effective treatments for musculoskeletal disorders. We are able to offer a broader range of treatment options for our patients. Each patient is different and each responds differently to a specific treatment. As a practice, we continually evaluate the latest technology and treatments available.
Since the future practice of medicine will be a shift away from treating symptoms of disease and instead focusing on altering or curing the underlying disorder, we are offering regenerative medicine injection therapies to our patients at PRP ProloTherapy Tampa. This is developing area of medicine that appears to offer great promise in treating acute and chronic disease.
