Look, major surgery is no-one's favourite recreation, but if you need abdominal surgery, Dr Kwon is a top choice.The first reason is that he is very approachable, has a great sense of humour, and is extremely thorough in explaining what is needed, why, and how he will do it. For me, it meant I went into the surgery confident he knew what he was doing, and would do it in the best way. That trust is essential: for peace of mind, you need a surgeon you have confidence in - after all, you are trusting them with your life.But the most important reason is that he is a really good surgeon. I needed a double hernia repair (turned out I had had them for quite a while; I'm almost certain I can recall when I tore one, over 60 years ago). Since I had had two previous major abdominal surgeries for other issues, Dr Kwon was expecting the worst in terms of what he would find. He wasn't wrong. There were adhesions all over the place from the previous surgeries (I have the photos to prove it). What would normally be a half hour surgery took over one and a half hours. That must have taken immense concentration: one and a half hours where a single wrong move could be fatal. Thankfully, he did it. And he did it for a fixed fee, despite knowing ahead of time that this was probably what he was facing.The results are amazing. You expect some pain and debility after surgery, but it really wasn't much. I didn't need or use any painkillers after the surgery, and slept fine that evening. I did have a couple of paracetamol the following morning - for my arthritis! I'm in my 70s, yet I was able to do a kilometer walk the afternoon of the following day, and 5 kilometers in hilly country the day after that. It confirms that Dr Kwon had done an amazing job, despite the complications, in minimising physical trauma. Six weeks later, I feel fitter than I have in 20 years. In fact my biggest problem is remembering that I still have limitations, and not to lift more than 10Kg (Dr Kwon's schedule goes up to 20Kg in a couple of weeks, which will be a bit easier to remember).Added 2024: now a year later, I'm back to full duties, including construction, on our bush block. That involves carrying 40Kg items around on a steep block, shovelling hundreds of kilos of earth, etc. I have had no problems at all with the hernia surgery.Dr Kwon has my very strongest recommendation. You may, if you are very lucky, find his equal, but I really doubt you will find anyone better, no matter how hard you search.
GWS Surgery is a great facility. It is modern, clean and has off street parking. The receptionist there was helpful, caring and the waiting room was not packed out with other patients. Saw Dr. Kwon there twice, each time without any major issues.
I recently had a gastroscopy and colonoscopy performed by Dr Kwon. Thankfully all went well and no issues were identified. Dr Kwon has carried out these procedures for me in the past, as well as the removal of my gall bladder a few years ago. In every case he was professional and pleasant to deal with, explained what was happening and answered all my questions. My post op recoveries have been good and I’m sure this has to do with Dr Kwon’s surgical abilities. He is a likeable man who genuinely cares for his patients (and is clearly a very good surgeon). I would be happy to have Dr Kwon treat members of my family and so I am happy to recommend Dr Kwon to anyone looking for a great GI surgeon.
I just wanted to say thanks so much for your help getting to the bottom of my hip pain! You were all so kind in the process.I’m really grateful to you Dr Sebastianus, really taking the time to ask about my history and help to get the beginning of a picture of what might be happening.
Dr. Sebastian Kwon has previously performed life saving emergency surgery for me and continues to follow up with routine monitoring and procedures. Over the years I have known him, he has always impressed me with his high level of competence, courteous consideration and personal charm. A truly professional gentleman!Thanks, Sebastian,James Anderson.
Dr Kwon is an excellent practitioner. He is very welcoming and understanding and listens plus explained in detail what is happening and why. He followed up on everything he said he would do and provided outstanding documentation after ever consult / procedure so we always knew exactly what was happens and what the results were. I had my Gallblander removed by Dr Kwon, it was hassle free experience and he arrange everything in a very short space of time, I went home the same day and had basicly no pain or side effects and he followed up to make sure everything was fine. Dr Kwon had an amazing bedside manner and alway made me feel comfortable. I was so happy with his service that I had him look after my wife who is extremely ill due to cancer, he expedited her procedure due to urgently and went out of his way to assist, Dr Kwon communicated and consulted with other specialists who were looking after my wifes care and made sure he and everyone else knew exactly what was happening. Dr Kwon at every stage showed a level of care which I find is rarely seen. Thanks Dr Kwon.
I recently underwent an emergency procedure performed by Dr. Sebastian Kwon, and I cannot express enough how impressed I am with his expertise and the exceptional care I received. Dr. Kwon provided thorough guidance before and after the surgery, addressing all my questions and concerns with patience and clarity.The surgery itself was a success, and the entire process was incredibly smooth. Dr. Kwon's skill and precision were evident, resulting in minimal discomfort and a swift recovery. I am grateful for his exceptional surgical abilities and the attention he paid to every detail.I highly recommend Dr. Sebastian Kwon to anyone in need of surgical care. His professionalism, knowledge, and dedication to patient well-being are truly commendable. Thank you, Dr. Kwon, for your outstanding care and for making my experience as smooth as possible.
Dr Kwon has removed a poisonous bag from my body called Gall Bladder and made me feel 20 years younger, thank you Sebastian for performing a great job without any after symptoms, may God bless you and keep helping other people live a happier life.
I found Dr Kwon to be outstanding. He diagonsed my situation very quickly, was able to schedule surgery in a timely manner, and was very pro-active in following up as well. I would highly recommend Dr Kwon to anyone on gall bladder related matters.
Dr Kwon is very professional. He explains the problem and the procedure to be used and has a friendly manner when dealing with patients. He completed my surgery skillfully and with no complications. I will be happy to recommend him in the future.
Dr Kwon performed emergency surgery on my Gallbladder. I had been referred to him by a nurse I knew.From our first meeting I felt cared for and in safe hands. I ask WAY too many questions and Dr Kwon took the time to answer them.The administration side of things was efficient and friendly too.I completely recommend Dr Kwon.
Dr Kwon was so helpful with my surgery and managed to fit me in very quickly. The surgery went well and I have minimal scars. He was also really knowledgeable and helped me understand my condition. I highly recommend him!
I developed a hernia that had to be repaired as I was going on a holiday. Found Dr Kwon on Google. Within 2 weeks I was in surgeryrepaired between 7 & 9 PM and went home 10am the following morning. He was very professional and a hell of a nice guy. I am going great, and I wound not hesitate to recommend him should you need similar surgery.
I am very thankful that I was referred to Dr Kwon. He is very caring, explains everything in great detail and always makes time to answer your questions. I have had to have two surgeries by Dr Kwon, both times he allayed my fears and offered reassurance right up to the time of surgery.Fanny (his receptionist) is lovely to deal with, so friendly and happy. There is nothing that is too much trouble for her.They are a lovely team, which is what is needed when you are sick, nervous and unsure. Highly recommended.
When I first met Dr Kwon about repairing my umbilical hernia he brought to my attention that I had divarication of recti (separation of my abdominal muscles) also that needed to be repaired.Dr Kwon then explained in detail the procedure needed to be undertaken for repair of both.The surgery went exactly as he explained, including the pain :).I write this just over four weeks post-op, Dr Kwon is not only professional, extremely learned he is also a warm gentle soul.Dr Kwon, thank you.Zivko (Jim)
I am so thankful for Dr Kwon. He has had such a positive influence on my health. He listened and thoroughly explained all I needed to know, making me feel reassured and confident with my procedures. Follow up was also prompt. I highly recommend him - with his professionalism and skill you'll be in great hands! His secretary Fanny is also lovely, highly professional and helpful.
I want to thank Dr Kwon and her team Fanny and Kim for their personalised and professional service. Thank you so much for looking after my mum and the detailed report afterwards. I really appreciate your excellent care!!!
Excellent Surgeon, Service and Satisfaction guaranteed, although he is not the guy I want to need to see all the time, whenever I do, it is always my pleasure and I would not hesitate in recommending Dr Kwon and his team, you'll certainly be in good hands
Dr Kwon is a very caring Dr, very helpful and knowledgeable. He was thorough in explaining what the issue was and what he would do in surgery. His staff followed up on how I was doing after the procedure. The findings in surgery were well explained. Surgery was a success and I have been pain free since.
Dr Kwon is a very skilled and dedicated surgeon, his bedside manner is exemplary and I would recommend him to anyone requiring his services. If it was not for him going above and beyond, I would not be here to write this review.
Dr.Kwon is a very kind and professional specialist. He explained the procedure in detail and was generous in answering any questions the patient had. After surgery for an inguinal hernia, my wounds became comfortable and my quality of life has improved. I'm thankful for the opportunity to meet such a wonderful doctor.
I was very impressed with Dr Kwon. After presenting to Norwest ED with appendicitis, I was assigned Dr Kwon. Both pre-op and post-op, he was very reassuring, listened and answered all my questions and he, and his team, did a wonderful job with my surgery. Recovery was very easy and straightforward.I highly recommend Dr Kwon.
Dr Kwon is a very knowledgeable and professional in his approach. He performed my procedure which was successful. Post that during my follow up appointment he explained in detail about the findings and the way forward for me. Going by my experience, I would highly recommend him for anyone looking for gastrointestinal specialist. Thank you Dr Kwon.
I have been seeing Dr Kwon for over a year now. He is both personable and professional. A fantastic, down to earth Gastro who has never once made me feel as though my issues were “made up” like others have before. Thank you Dr Kwon.
Dr Kwon and his staff were fantastic. Very professional. Always willing to answer and questions I might have. My initial consultation was brilliant as he helped out my mind at rest about a potential issue but continued to offer to do an investigative gastroscopy and colonoscopy to help alleviate anxiety and give the all clear. His reports were well documented and follow up was prompt and professional. A pleasant manner and easy to relate with. Would recommend!
So glad my GP picked this fellow for my referral. Very easy to talk to and excellent at communicating options and outcomes. Very accommodating to slot my procedure in at short notice and he and his team made everything go smoothly. Could not be happier.
I went into surgery in Dec 2021 for an Umbilical hernia repair and divarication of the recti with Dr Kwon, I did my research and had appointments with other surgeons before making my decision. What an outcome, From the first appointment Dr Kwon was calm, professional and very detailed on what the surgery entailed. On the day of the operation everything was explained to me again. Post Op Dr Kwon checked in and went over what he had done and explained the next several weeks’ rehab. I am so thankful for the skill and dedication Dr Kwon showed, I'm now 5 week’s post-surgery including another catch up with the Doc and my results are everything Dr Kwon said they would be. Thanks again Dr Kwon.I highly recommend
I have been a patient of Dr Kwon for the past few years and have always found him to be very caring, easy to talk to and highly skilled. Dr Kwon recently performed a routine Colonoscopy and Gastroscopy at the Nepean Private Hospital. All went well. Thank you Dr Kwon and your support team for taking such good care of me.I would highly recommend Dr Kwon.
With this being my first major surgery, Dr Kwon provided a detailed run through of everything from informing me everything that would happen in the surgery to explaining my condition. Although I was very nervous, overwhelmed and worried, Dr Kwon calmly explained the risks and how we would move forward from there. Dr Kwon is very thorough and detailed specialist and I couldn’t have been more relieved that he was the one to perform my surgery. So thank you very much Dr Kwon for performing this surgery.
I felt very blessed to have Dr Kwon perform my surgery. I felt very at ease after he explained the procedure and I felt I was in safe hands. He did a fantastic job and I was back on my feet the next day.
I would like to thank Dr Kwon for expertise in his profession. He is very professional and explains all procedures and results clearly. I have been seeing him for a couple of years now for different gastrointestinal complaints and he has been amazing. He is a very kind man with a very kind bedside manner. Seeing him just before surgery his kindly spoken manner put me at ease. Eased my anxiety and I felt safe in his hands. He fixed my stomach problem when others couldn’t. He kept in contact with me on a regular bases.He preformed my surgery and with care and expertise. I was very very happy with him.I would not hesitate at all to recommending him to my family and friends.I have to also say his secretary’s are also very lovely and helpful.Thank you Dr Kwon and staff.Kind regardsPauline C.
Dr Kwon is highly professional and efficient with his work. I felt extremely comfortable upon first meeting and was appreciative of how well everything was described to me both prior to my procedure and in the follow up appointment after. Thank you for your dedication Dr Kwon and Fanny.
Dr. Sebastian Kwon did a great job with my first ever Colonoscopy and Gastroscopy. He explained everything to me in a very clear manner. He was also kind and friendly. All of the staff were great, especially Fanny who was very helpful and patient to answer all my silly questions...Thank you Dr. Kwon, I'll see you next year..Stay safe !
Highly recommend Dr Sebastianus Kwon. I have had two surgeries performed by Dr Kwon in September 2021. Dr was available to speak with and discuss my concerns prior to surgeries and post. Takes time to ensure i understood procedures and listen to my concerns i may have had. Made himself available to discuss outcome with family member.
I recently underwent a procedure for Gastroscopy & Colonoscopy perfomed by Dr Kwon . Before going in I was very apprehensive & nervous about it. But Dr Kwon was extremely emphathetic, reassuring and cleared all my fears in the most sensitive manner. Seeing Dr Kwon's smiling, empathetic demeour gave me a lot of confidence. Post op consultations were thorough and explained well. Thank you to Dr Kwon & his team for all their assistance. Also a big thank you to reception & staff at the surgery for being so prompt & accomodating. I have already given Dr Kwon's reference to my friends & family should they require help in similar situations.A big Thank You again Dr Kwon !
Thank you Dr. Kwon for being the dedicated, thoughtful, and compassionate doctor that you are! You listened to my needs and worked towards a healthy outcome. I very much appreciate your skills and the care you have brought to the treatment of my inguinal hernia. Your personal touch and willingness to spend time with me is deeply appreciated. I feel so blessed to know you and have you as my surgeon.RafaelNSW
Had a Hernia Repair under Work Cover recently from Dr Kwon, he made the whole experience go very smoothly and for my first surgery I had absolutely no problems, highly recommend this fantastic Specialist - Phillip
Dr Kwon was very kind and explained to me very in detail of the surgery. It was my first time so I was quite nervous but 5 star experience with Doctor Kwon and his team. Thank you so much I have recommended doctor to all of my friends already.
Dr Kwon will tell you every single detail of your condition in a way that you can fully understand very easily. He will make sure that you will be looked after by him and the whole team. He has a very good sense of humour and a happy smiling doctor 🤗
I was lucky enough to be referred to Dr Kwon for a large supra umbilical hernia. During my initial consultation with Dr Kwon he went through the procedure with me which put me at ease. The operation was a wonderful success. He used key hole surgery to perform the operation which really reduced the recovery. Dr Kwon's bedside manner was exceptional and I would highly recommend him.
Excellent manner, Easy to chat with and very efficient. This is the second time been back to see him. He has a very calming manner when talking with you. Wouldn't go anywhere else if I had to have same proceedure done.
