I utilize the latest minimally invasive surgical techniques to provide the best care for sports injuries such as labral tears in the hip, ACL and meniscus tears in the knee, and rotator cuff injuries in the shoulder. I also treat more advanced joint pathology with partial and complete joint replacement when necessary. At my practice, we serve as leaders in the innovation of Orthopaedic surgical treatment with nationally recognized and award winning research in arthroscopic treatment of shoulder and knee injuries. Our team works hard to provide each patient with the respect and attention that we would give to our own families.

I found Dr. Shin based on my location and visited his clinic for my hip pain a few weeks ago. I was seen quickly by an assistant and then Dr. Shin himself after taking a few x-rays of my hip in the clinic which I thought was helpful. He quickly diagnosed me and listened to my needs and we came up with a plan for my lifestyle and hip. He was personable and I felt he truly listened to my needs and addressed my pain. Would highly recommend!

Intelligent. Compassionate. Honest. I believe these are the qualities that distinguishes Dr. Shin from other doctors I have met all over the bay area. I have been dealing with hip pain for the past few years and almost lost hope in returning back to running and football activities. It was until I saw Dr. Shin who accurately diagnosed me and gave me a clear explanation of my condition with a subsequent treatment plan I was comfortable following. It is Dr. Shin's top-notch expertise and excellent staff members that made me feel taken care of. Highly recommend!

The x-ray technician made inappropriate comments about my ethnicity and Edward Shin was only concerned about surgery and an MRI. He did nothing to address my immediate pain or provide any guidance about how to take care of my injury until the MRI. He talked with me for less than 2 minutes and is clearly focused on earning revenue through surgery rather than sound medical advice. I found him to be unprofessional and unfeeling.

Dr Shin was knowledgeable and quick. My appointment started 35 min late and I spent ~10 min with the doctor overall and he answered my questions, but I did feel properly treated and I would go back again if necessary.

Will only go to Dr. Shin for any Ortho needs, and have referred several friends who also reported a great experience. Encouraged non-surgical fix to my Grade 3 MCL strain/Grade 1 ACL strain. Then did the same for a Grade 2 hamstring tear a year later. Both injuries recovered fully and on schedule.

Making the appointment was super easy through Zocdoc and appointments on fairly short notice (3 working days or so) were available. Office was efficient and staff was very nice. Dr. Shin himself was kind, helpful, forthcoming and efficient. Happy to call myself a new patient.

Dr Shin was very friendly and patient. He helped me understand the trade-offs of getting surgery and actually recommended me continuing with PT and not getting surgery.

Dr. Shin is taking great care of my 9 year old son. Since this is for pediatric care, Dr. Shin is taking extra precautions for a healthy and long-term recovery. We were hesitant at first since we preferred pediatric orthopedics, but he and Dr. Chen came with a great referral and we could not be happier. Our son is definitely in great hands.

Dr. Shin is extremely knowledgeable about the hip and I felt very confident in everything he had to say. I have been a competitive runner for the past 12 years and feel that I know my body very well. I have had an issue with my left hip extending into my left IT band for the past year and a half and have seen multiple doctors, none of which understood what was going on until Dr. Shin. He explains everything in a way that helps the patient understand what is going on. I felt very heard and he seemed to look deeper into the issue than the other doctors to really figure out what is going on. Highly recommend for athletes with hip problems!
