My Team
Steven Randall, PA-C

Dr. Kwon and his staff at OrthoCarolina have been wonderful from my first visit, through a complicated surgery and now post-op. I feel as though I have had very personal care. My questions were answered and after my first post-op, my spirits were lifted through both Dr. Kwon and his PA, Steven's, kind words of encouragement. I would highly recommend Dr. Kwon and Orthocarolina.
