Dr. Shin is Truely a GOD send!

Dr. Shin is not only an extremely intelligent medical doctor, but he is also a superior state-of-the- art Orthopedic Surgeon. He has performed extensive surgery on my neck (C4 - C7 fusion in 2011 and C3 to C4 in 2018). He's amazing because all of my pain and discomfort goes away after he fix my neck. Dr. Shin exhibits tact and empathy, as well as calmness, patience and extreme intelligence about Orthopedic problems. Twice, I put my life in Dr. Shin's hands and each time, he has saved my life! Dr. Shin has successfully performed surgery on my husband's back and prevented him from becoming parallelized and having cerebral fluid leak in his spin! We truly thank GOD for experienced and talented surgeons like Dr. Shin!

Best surgeon in Howard county

Dr. SHIN did a remarkable job on my father's back . He saved my father from essentially crawling on the floor- to walking unassisted in roughly 3 weeks. I would highly recommend him. I did my research prior to the surgery, talked to several unaffiliated nurses that may have come in contact with orthopedic patients, the overall consensus was that Dr. SHIN is better at and does "a lot of complicated cases" . What more do you need? Best surgeon in Howard county period!
