Specialties

Dr. Alexander Shin has the following 2 specialties

  • Surgery of the Hand

    Hand surgeons are certified surgeons who are also experts in the function and structure of your wrists, hands and forearms. This allows them to treat arthritis, carpal tunnel, trigger finger and tennis elbow, most of which tend to result from repetitive and excessive use of the corresponding joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments.
    Hand surgeons also commonly work with patients who have fractures or broken bones from any kind of accident. If you're experiencing any kind of general pain in your hand, wrist or forearm that isn’t going away, a hand surgeon is probably your best resource.

Excellent doctor and excellent team

If you have a brachial plexus or other upper body ortho issue, Dr.'s Shin and Bishop at Rochester Mayo is where you want to go for treatment. They use a team approach, and are able to help patients in ways other surgeons can't even dream of. Dr. Shin is not only technically excellent, he has a wonderful sense of humor, and it is a delight to see him. Before and after surgery he explains everything in layman's terms. Their nurse, Ashley, is top notch and goes out of her way to help patients and their families. I am so very grateful to have found this team for my children.
