We are thrilled to have Dr. Kim on board with us at Southlake Orthopaedics. He will see patients at both locations Grandview and at our MedPlex office off Valleydale Road. Dr. Kim’s specialty is spine surgery.  He most recently completed his fellowship with Twin Cities Spine Surgeons, one of the birthplaces of modern spine surgery.  Dr. Kim’s goal is to continue providing the best standards in spine care from spinal deformity surgery to minimally invasive procedures.

About Dr. Daniel Kim

I enjoy spine surgery due to the complexity of decision making, the current technological advances in the field, and the amount of positive change I can help produce in a patient’s quality of life.

I feel most successful when I guide patients through the complex journey of spine surgery with engagement of the patient and their family.  Developing a plan which focuses on not just surgery, but the patient’s quality of living and the goals they want to achieve in life.

A commitment to national standard quality of care; top fellowship trained colleagues; with a continued focus on research and education to continually improve outcomes for patients.  Southlake’s experienced staff is dedicated to a patient first philosophy; comprehensive non-operative and operative services including therapy, imaging, injections, bracing, and more.  The relationship with a leading spine hospital in the Southeastern region as Grandview Medical Center and what they offer through their orthopaedic services complements the scope of services offered by Southlake Orthopaedics Sports Medicine and Spine Center.

Enjoy playing soccer, tennis, golf, skiing, traveling, and going on hikes with our dog Bear.  I am fluent in English, Spanish, and Korean.
