Welcome to my website!

March 19th, 2013 | Posted by: Dr. Lin

I am happy to provide this introduction to my practice for my current and prospective patients. I have been in private practice for over 5 years now, and after building a busy successful practice on excellent surgical outcomes and happy patient "word of mouth" referrals, it felt right to "get with the times" and have a personalized online presence for my patients. Understanding that patients need to be cautious with Internet research, my goal for this site is simple: to be a dependable source of information for my patients on what types of services are available to reliably improve their spinal conditions.

My practice is dedicated to providing the highest quality care with conservative and interventional, evidence-based practice that has been proven to successfully treat spinal pathology. I believe strongly in individualizing a patient's care to meet their own specific needs. Whether you need physical therapy, an epidural injection, a minimally invasive procedure, or a slightly more extensive surgery, I will do what is best for YOU. I will educate you on proven treatments, both surgical and non-surgical, that best fits your particular condition. I am very straightforward and honest with my patients. Also, I can guarantee this: What I offer to my patients is what I know are their best options — and exactly what I would offer my own family members.

Again, welcome and enjoy!!

Dr. Lin is featured in an article on the USTA Southern California's website. It may be little known to you that Dr. Lin is an excellent tennis player. He and his partner won the National Boys' 18 Championships in 1993, which punched him a ticket to play in the US Open. In his UCLA days, he was an Academic All-American and team co-captain.

The article describes Dr. Lin's passion for tennis in college, and balancing that with his aspriations in the medical world. He utilized college tennis to realize his life goals as a doctor. In the article Dr. Lin gives advice to student-athletes, "I think it's all about time management and being disciplined with your goals. Those are not easy things as a child is growing up, particularly in this day and age. With the right guidance and focus, though, you put yourself in a good position to achieve your goals. Obviously there are a lot of other important factors, but this is my succinct version."
