      Let me start by saying, Dr Shin is a very humble man. He absolutely listens and answers any questions or concern that you may have. I needed surgery for a broken wrist bone that would not heal. He identified and showed me exactly where the break was and what he would do to correct the problem. He also told me up front, that I would need a second surgery to remove the hardware that would help me heal. No surprises there! Surgery went perfectly both times. I would highly recommend Dr Shin!!!

      Dr. Shin is clear and direct with the problem you are facing. He gives clear options, and allows you to pick the best method.
      in Yardley, PA |
      I had a couple different people recommend me to Dr. Shin, including my primary care physician. I can see why. He explained my wrist and elbow problems very clearly to me. The care was top-notch. His staff was excellent. I am extremely appreciative of the care I received at the Hand Center. I recommend him highly!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
