DAVID Y. LIN, MD, FAAOS
When parents place their children’s musculoskeletal health in Dr. David Lin’s hands, he takes that responsibility seriously. For the past
decade he has individualized pediatric orthopedic care, applying cutting-edge treatments to fit patients’ needs.
Having treated thousands of children, Dr. Lin has seen a wide variety of age-specific problems from newborns to young adults. He has devel-
oped special interest in fracture/trauma care and is sought for his expertise in the unique field of pediatric sports medicine. Arthroscopic solu-
tions for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) ruptures, meniscal tears in knees, and labral injuries in shoulders; knee pain; and overuse injuries
comprise a large portion of the pathology seen in the office. In addition, Dr. Lin manages hip dysplasia, benign tumors, scoliosis and clubfeet.
He is part of a very busy and expanding pediatric orthopedic practice that performs more arthroscopic procedures in young people than any
similar group in New Jersey.
For Dr. Lin, a New Jersey Monthly Top Doctor multiple times, success is a patient returning to the playing field, a patient with a better quality
of life, a patient who limps in his office but then walks out. “The best reward is when kids give me a high five, write me a thank-you letter or
extend a hug,” he says.
