Dr. Lin replaced my knee in October 2023. He has a great personality and outstanding credentials, which made me very confident in his skills. I'm so happy he was recommended by a friend.

One year out from surgery my shoulder is doing great. Solid, strong, durable, with no loss of range of motion, no sag, and no aching. Swimming is going well, I track my swims with a Garmin and, despite the surgery, remain 94 percent faster than others in my age group and 93 percent faster than users in the age group below me. In 2,500-yard swims my average 100-yard time is 1:18, which isn’t bad for my age. I’ve also added the rowing machine to my workout routine. Even though my competitive days are far behind me, I want to remain in motion. Thank you for your expertise.

I appreciated that Dr. Lin talked with me about my shoulder and did not push me toward surgery. He had good advice about continuing my active routine and seeking his help for surgery when I feel that is the last resort. Thank you so much!

Dr. Lin is an exceptional surgeon who understands the athletic mind. I had significant damage to my shoulder from a lifetime of competitive swimming, coaching softball, and throwing. I lost all power in my shoulder. It sagged about three inches, and my shoulder blade relocated itself to the middle of my back. My medical provider’s suggestion was to stop swimming, which I found unsatisfactory. After an MRI I was sent to Longview Orthopedic Associates, specifically to Dr. Lin. He treated me like an athlete, not a guy in his mid-50s, which I greatly appreciated. Dr. Lin recommended surgery and was very confident he could fix the damage, which was extensive. We proceeded with the surgery in October. He repaired the bicep tendon, labrum, damaged cartilage, and the rotator. Two months later I was in therapy; two weeks after that I was back in the pool swimming the breaststroke. Today, I have full range of motion; my shoulder is strong, level, and doing much better. Only five months after surgery, I was swimming 2,700-yard sprints and even did a 4,200-yard distance workout in 70 minutes. Dr. Lin’s confidence and incredible talent can’t be overstated.

I received the best care with Dr. Lin and his staff. This was my 2nd surgery by Dr. Lin and both have been the best care I could have received. I thank Dr. Lin and Longview Orthopedics.

Superior Capsular Reconstruction and Pec Transfer:

Both Shoulders Replaced:

I fell, tearing my rotator cuff on front and back side. Dr. Lin performed surgical magic and put me back together. His advice was not to get in a hurry and do not come to a pre-determined time line on when I would be healed. Over the weeks of being in a sling and having limited movement I was approached by several people who voluntarily came up to me with their story of over doing it during recovery and they paid the price. You must be a patient, go through physical therapy, do you exercises, stretch and follow Dr. Lin’s advice. I am five months post-surgery and recently had my last PT and Dr follow u. My shoulder is very flexible, gaining strength and it all started with Dr. Lin’s work. Longview Orthopedic does good work and the location and full-service convenience makes it very user friendly. I highly recommend them.
