    John Shin, MD
    Specializing in minimally invasive, endoscopic and robotic-assisted Orthopedic Spine Surgery, Degenerative and Traumatic conditions, including complex pathologies of the Lumbar, Thoracic and Cervical Spine

    Philosophy of Care:

    In my approach to patient care, I am guided by a fundamental principle: to provide the same level of care that I would expect for a beloved family member. This entails a commitment to exhaust all non-operative or conservative treatment options, including medication, physical therapy, and injections. It is only when these efforts prove insufficient in achieving the desired results that surgery is considered.

    I firmly believe that achieving optimal outcomes requires the right procedure for the right patient at the right time. To this end, surgical planning is a meticulous and highly individualized process. Each patient has unique characteristics, including bone health, posture, anatomy, pain levels, symptoms, and lifestyle, which demand a tailored approach. My goal is to ensure that every aspect of the surgery aligns with the patient's specific needs.
