New Hip for my Mom
Dr. Bob Yin is my Mom's Orthopedic surgeon for a left hip replacement. From our 1st visit, initial consult 2/2021, Dr. Yin was very patient and listened to my Mom's fears and concerns. He explained every detail as well as dispelled mysteries. My Mom was very comfortable communicating with him because he also spoke Mandarin. It has been a year since her surgery (5/2021) and she just had her 1 year follow up - clean, well-healed new hip. During the course leading up to the surgery, post surgery, his office team used multiple ways to check in on my Mom's pain and healing progress. Emails to the office were always promptly answered. My Mom was as staunch "no surgery" advocate. Refused to have surgery for years and met with multiple Specialist, therapists, and surgeon for her pain. Finally, after years of pain, she meets Dr. Yin and now can't stop talking about him. She recommends him to all her friends who is looking for an orthopedic surgeon.

Just had my one year follow up visit after a direct anterior left hip replacement. Dr. Yin performed the surgery one year ago and I feel better than ever. Back to tennis 4 days/week with no pain and full mobility in my hip and thank Dr. Yin for eliminating my pain with no compromise to my active life style. Would highly recommend him!!

I have been to Dr. Yin a couple of times because of old injured knees. Dr. Yin was very thorough in his study of the Xrays and MRI's on my knees. Although he is a renowned surgeon he was honest with me and said a "clean out" would be the most I would need right now. We discussed the options for me and I chose the knee injection at this time which completely took away the excruciating pain I had been living with. Even though this may be a temporary fix, I feel that Dr. Yin's honesty and expertise has completely won my trust of him. When it becomes necessary for me to have the surgery he will definitely be my surgeon. I would highly recommend Dr. Yin to anybody looking for an honest opinion and a top notch orthopedic.

Dr. Yin helped me with Hardware removal in my elbow. He took the time to review my case and when he entered the exam room he was already familiar with my history. He was very professional, knowledgeable and timely. His staff was also polite and helpful as well. I highly recommend Dr. Yin to give sound medical care.

Dr Yin did an exceptional job in replacing my left knee,he explained the procedure and what to expect and what I must do to have a good recovery. It has been 6 months now and I am very happy with the result. I highly recommend buying an ice machine. It really helped with the swelling along with following the exercise routine he gave me. I am now walking pain free like I I used to. I would give him 10 stars if I could.

Dr Bob Yin Has just performed full knee replacement on both of my knees simultaneously. He was extremely professional, thorough, and accommodating through all the intervals pre, during and post operation. I experienced no pain besides the swelling when I left the hospital and I was walking without support 3 days after the operation. I cannot thank him enough and I fully recommend him because of his top qualification in his field

Dr. Yin was the best I could have asked for. I had a bad break three places in my ankle, and he did an excellent job of surgery. It is healing extremely well and quickly, and I am grateful for his work. I feel lucky to live so close to such an excellent orthopedist.
