OPA Welcomes Neurosurgeon Kyle Kim!

Dr. Kim is a board certified neurosurgeon who specializes in the treatment of a variety of conditions affecting the brain and spine. He attended University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of Medicine and has extensive experience in the minimally invasive approach to treatment of tumors, vascular lesions, and degenerative conditions.

Although, this isn’t Dr. Kim’s first time treating patients in Washington. Dr. Kim underwent a general surgery internship, neurological surgery training and a cerebrovascular surgery fellowship at the University of Washington here in Seattle. His neurological surgery training also included a year at Atkinson Morley Hospital in Wimbledon, United Kingdom.

After completing his training, Dr. Kim spent eight years at Allegheny General Hospital/Hahnemann Medical College in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He then moved his practice back to Seattle at Group Health Permanante where he spent the last ten years before joining our practice here at OPA. Most importantly out of all of his years training, what Dr. Kim has found is that he likes to apply an individualized approach to achieve the best outcome for every patient.

His professional memberships include the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, the Congress of Neurological Surgeons, and Joint AANS/CNS Section of Cerebrovascular Surgery. He also is a recognized “Top Doctor” by both Seattle Magazine and Seattle Metropolitan Magazine.

Dr. Kim primary activities outside of work revolve around his wife Mia and their three children. Brains run in the family, as his two older children are physicians as well. He also enjoys reading, following sports, and bicycling in his spare time.
