About Kingsley R. Chin, MD

Graduating from Harvard Medical School, completing the Harvard Orthopaedic Residency program, and a Spine Fellowship under the mentorship of Dr. Henry H. Bohlman, have prepared me to offer the highest quality and compassionate spine care to patients.

I offer a wide breadth of technical expertise in surgeries of the entire spine: cervical, thoracic, lumbar, and sacrum including the newest available techniques that have proven efficacy whether it is for an open procedure or for minimally invasive techniques. Keeping abreast of the proven advances in spine surgery, developing patented spinal devices, participating at major spine conferences worldwide, acting as a journal reviewer, and contributing to spine textbooks as author and editor, ensure that my patients are never left behind.

My practice prides itself in meeting patients' individual needs through comprehensive evaluation and treatment designed to help them achieve an active, pain-free lifestyle. Many musculoskeletal conditions can be treated by non-surgical techniques; surgery is just one treatment option. We combine leading-edge techniques with proven traditional methods to provide our patients with the best orthopaedic care possible.

Our purpose is to handle each and every patient visit with care and proficiency. It is also highly important to us that our doctor - patient relationship is open and honest so we work to develop a partnership with our patients. On my part, this begins with listening. We develop a dialogue through which my patients understand the diagnostic process, their own unique problem, their treatment choices, and the recovery process. Patients help to guide and direct the diagnostic and treatment activities.

We ensure that patients are well informed about their conditions and the multiple choices of treatment.
