How likely are you to recommend Dr. Lin?
I was referred to Dr. Lin for a trigger finger. The entire procedure took less than five minutes. With anesthesia, there was no discomfort. I’ll admit to an incredible fascination. Can they really do this? How was this ever discovered in the first place? Dr. Lin was able to tell me this procedure has been around for about fifteen years, and claimed to have improved it with his personal tinkering. Older treatments for trigger finger were more invasive and difficult. About eight hours after this surgery, I started typing this little story. Movement over a keyboard was no problem. A full range of motion came in just a couple of days. I was advised to avoid movements involving serious gripping, pulling, or rotating, but I found nearly every other motion to be easy. So my problem got solved, and I got to observe the surgery just inches from my eyes. Neat. Thanks, Dr. Lin!
