About David Y. Lin
Multiyear New Jersey Monthly Top Doctors, Dr. Mark Rieger, Dr. David Lin and Dr. Joshua Strassberg provide the highest level of pediatric orthopedic care at one of the largest practices of its kind in the state. They treat sports injuries, fractures, scoliosis, hip dysplasia and clubfoot using the most innovative nonoperative, minimally invasive and arthroscopic surgical techniques available, and now have the only EOS low-dose X-ray machine in northern New Jersey, which uses 10 times less radiation and offers extensive images of the spine and limbs.
Known as the go-to pediatric orthopedists, they also offer the bedside manner parents want. “Our philosophy is: treat our patients as we want our family treated,” says Dr. Rieger. With lighthearted, compassionate demeanors, these board-certified orthopedic surgeons know how to comfort young children, who often arrive frightened and in pain.
Dr. Lin says, “For me, success is having a patient who once limped into my office give me a high five en route to the playing field.” Dr. Strassberg says, “My goal is to return kids to their activities quickly and as painlessly as possible.” When asked how he and his partners have earned their stellar reputation, Dr. Rieger says, “My mentor, Dr. Hall, taught me, ‘You don’t seek a reputation. If you provide the best possible care to your patients, your reputation will find you.’”
