Dr. Kenneth Lin has successfully demonstrated his knowledge while restoring my left shoulder to full range of motion, and bicep re-attachment. He replaced my left shoulder this last November and at Six months it is fully restored, full range of motion and pain free. Great job Doc!! Paul Hansen

I had both my shoulders repaired by Dr. Lin. He is very good at making sure you get the exact care you need and explaining everything that is going on in way that you can understand. My shoulders are much better having seen him.

Dr. Lin operated on my shoulder, and did a great job! Almost two years later, it feels stronger now than my non-injured shoulder.

Dr. Lin is friendly, knowledgeable, engaging, and did an excellent job repair my shoulder. Dr. Lin represents all that is good with Everett Bone & Joint. Trust me on this because with all of my surgeries I have had there I probably should have a punch card :)

Last year I had a pretty big shoulder injury while skiing. Major tears of my rotator cuff and labrum were not getting better with PT. As a primary care doc I always try to refer to specialists I would trust with the care of friends and family. Dr Lin has taken care of my patients for years. My partners and I have a ton of faith in him as a skilled surgeon and great human. His results are superb and his patients feel cared-for. I am just about back to normal and am grateful for the expertise

Dr. Lin was excellent in providing the details I had ask for. He also provided pictures detailing the 3 repairs he made on my shoulder with a complete explanation of each process. Having had 3 prior shoulder surgeries this was very important to me. His approach makes for the best odds available to reclaiming use of your shoulder. It is without reservation I would recommend him and his staff.

Dr. Lin was amazing! I had a pretty complicated shoulder injury in 2018 and met with Dr. Lin for appointments before and after. I really liked that it was ALWAYS Dr. Lin, never a PA-C or another doctor. He knew my case and I never felt like I had to tell my story all over again. Six months after surgery and following his protocol, my shoulder was about 80% and by the one year mark it was 100%. I have since recommended Dr. Lin to many people and will continue to do so.

Dr. Lin performed a major shoulder surgery on me for damages done in an accident. From beginning to end, he and his professional team have been awesome and there for me every step of the way. The most important thing is how I feel now six months after the surgery as well as my range of motion. I am back to being able to do Yoga and with a bit more work I should be 100% or very close. Thank you Dr. Lin and Team.

I had to have a second shoulder surgery last year and he was the one that performed it. It was one of the most invasive surgeries called laterjet. Had many visits with him before and after. I never felt like I was in the dark. He made sure I understood what was going to happen what the recovery was going to be like and over all made me feel comfortable that he was there to help me and fix my shoulder. Thank you very much.

Dr. Lin was eager to explain my injury, to insure I knew what would fix my injury. He was very thorough in his explanations and answered all my questions effectively. My surgery went very well and he had great photos of the procedure at my follow up appointment.

Dr. Lin performed a total right shoulder replacement for me about 6 months ago. Both surgery and recovery have gone very well with no complications. I have recommended Dr. Lin to others without reservation.

Entire process very smooth. Quick, accurate diagnosis with immediate surgical accommodation. Operating staff awesome as always. Comfortable and clean facility! I have had 15-20 proceedures, using 6 surgeons with Proliance / EBJ....all with success. Dr.Lin has been helpful in gaining use and strength post op. I trust my surgeon, he has earned that!

Once a relationship is developed Dr. Lin is very engaging. He is very much a matter of fact initially but warms up over time. He will spend as much time with you as needed to answer questions.
