Specialties

Dr. James T Lin 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.

  • Plastic Surgery

    A plastic surgery specialist is a physician with extensive training in the execution of plastic surgery procedures.
    Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts. Congenital defects, such as a cleft lip or palate, can be corrected by a plastic surgery specialist. Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.
    The other category of plastic surgery is cosmetic plastic surgery. Plastic surgery specialists often perform procedures like breast augmentation, face lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and lip injection as elective surgeries for patients who wish to make aesthetic improvements.

Dr. Lin is very nice, but does not spend much time with you. He makes you feel rushed and provides information VERY quickly. You leave his office questioning everything because there was no time spent discussing your situation. He gives a diagnosis, tells you what will happen, and BAM off you go.

Tendenitis in Thumb, but think its more

Dr. didnt know why tip of my thumb was numb, or why i had so much pain in middle of thumb, but felt it was a frozen thumb due to tendinitis. I know I have that, but feel I tore a ligament when trying to bend it, and created swelling, severe pain and redness in middle. He thought it was arthritic, but I never had this pain before until I started making jewelry a month ago, and then tried bending it when it froze after popping. He gave me a cortisone shot in base of thumb sitting my hand down on an unclean desk, & no gloves, which I feel was unsafe. and it made my thumb blow up like a balloon, with more numbness, and its worse the next day! I have to wait two weeks to see him, and hope it gets better. I'm doubting it so far!
