About Ah Young

Dr. Kim began her small animal sports medicine and rehabilitation residency with the orthopedic medicine and mobility team in 2019. She received her DVM from Seoul National University’s College of Veterinary Medicine in Korea and remained there to complete three years of orthopedic and neurosurgery training (the equivalent of a U.S. surgical residency). After that, she worked as a veterinary orthopedic and neurosurgeon for more than two years, when she then decided she wanted to learn more about non-surgical management of orthopedic diseases. Recognizing that soft tissues are just as important as bones in musculoskeletal diseases, Dr. Kim became certified in veterinary acupuncture and canine rehabilitation. Today, her special interests include veterinary orthotics and prosthetics, arthritis management (physical therapies, gene therapies, stem cells, pain management, acupuncture), objective gait analysis, orthopedic surgery, and nutrition. Dr. Kim wants to be the “gait keeper” for companion animals and help beloved pets have the long and happy life they deserve.
