I cannot express in words my gratitude towards Dr. Lim who saves my life. I am 72, female from NC, and was diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia for two years. I suffered from electric-shock type of pain so severe that my husband had to call 911. Meds did not help but caused terrible side effects. I searched the web and found Dr. Lim along with glowing testimonials from his patients. In my first consultation in early August 2017, Dr. Lim listened patiently to my concerns and described fully my options. I decided to have Microvascular Decompression and had surgery in August 2017. I was pain free and walked the next day. I was on Tylenol and Tylenol ONLY from day2 to day7. I recovered fully and resumed all my daily activities within a few weeks. Dr. Lim gave me the blessing to travel and I took an 18-day European tour and transatlantic cruise seven weeks after surgery. I am pain free for 5 months now without any meds. On top of being a top-notch neurosurgeon, Dr. Lim is compassionate, thorough, and has the warmest bedside manner. My experience with his team is equally impressive, from the medical supports with his PA Carla Scott and Sam and scheduling with Roberto Soto. Dr. Lim gave the quality of my life back and I owe it all to him. I recommend TN patients to seek advices from Dr. Lim.
We were very fortunate to have our case assigned to Dr .Lim when we were admitted to Hopkins after an ER visit. He was to travel soon and hence unable to take our case but when we requested him be accommodated us and did the surgery with Dr Battagowda for any complications that may arise when he is in travel. His PA Carla and administrator Sam are a pleasure to deal with and extremely responsive. His entire neurosurgery team especially Dr. Jing is terrific. My husband had a hemangioblastoma in his cerebellum and the next day after surgery he was walking around. As his PA Carla said my husband is theirs for life and I would have it no other way.
I went to Johns Hopkins with after being diagnosed with a Tumor and brain bleed in 2011. Dr. Lim instead of rushing me into surgery while I had bleeding (like other doctors suggested) decided to wait after several tests indicated that I had a cavernoma which had bled. He performed my surgery a few months later - it was a success. 5 years later and I still clear. He is very personable, and knowledgeable. One of those few Neurosurgeons that doesn't have the dreaded God complex :)
