Kim Poulton has a long history of debilitating back pain. At just 14-years-old, she had surgery for scoliosis. The surgery went well, however, many years later she started experiencing pain again but this time due to arthritis and spinal stenosis. The pain was severe, not allowing her to walk or function normally in society. When she reached out to a variety of spine surgeons in her home state of Utah, she was told that, “she was beyond their scope.”

Seeking out other options, she was recommended to Dr. Woosik Chung with the Denver International Spine Center at Presbyterian/St. Luke’s Medical Center. Surgery was a big decision but after deliberating with her husband, she thought it was the best way to get her life back. She is now mobile, pain-free and her friends can hardly recognize the new her. Kim states, “Dr. Chung and his P.A. took such good care of me. Everyone went above and beyond.” She is beyond thankful to have her life back.
