Hoon Yub Kim

  • Hoon Yub Kim, MD, PhD, FACS, is the endocrine surgeon who now serves as the associate professor of surgery in Korea University, Seoul, Korea.

    Most of the patients in Dr. Kim’s clinic are those who have thyroid cancers, suspicious malignant or indeterminate thyroid nodules, and those who suffer from hyperthyroidism such as Graves’ disease or toxic thyroid nodule. The rest of his patients are those with adrenal tumors, and those with functional or morphological parathyroid diseases.

    Dr. Kim’s major academic interests for the research are the thyroid cancer and the related surgery, and in recent years, his research mainly focuses on the preservation of function of the laryngeal nerves with intraoperative neuromonitoring (IONM) during thyroid surgery, and development of robotic transoral thyroid surgery, which, in turn, enabled him to perform the successful robotic transoral thyroidectomy in the real living patient primally in the world.
