    Dr. Lin completed her medical degree and undergraduate work at Stanford University. She did general surgical residency at University of California, San Francisco and vascular fellowship at New York-Presbyterian Hospital of Cornell and Columbia in New York City.  Dr. Lin comes to UCSF after having spent the first part of her career providing vascular surgical care in both community and county hospital settings nearby on the Peninsula. She has years of experience in quality assurance review and was a member of hospital committees focused on patient safety and quality care, physician wellness, and value management for supplies and equipment.  Dr. Lin is experienced in the treatment of aneurysms, arterial occlusive disease, dialysis access and embolotherapies.  She is also committed to functional limb restoration, including amputee care.

    Her patient care approach is to tailor evidence-based treatment for each unique patient to achieve maximal, durable results. At the same time, Dr. Lin respects the human side of illness and is dedicated to educating patients so they can participate comfortably in their healthcare.  The fundamental cornerstones of her philosophy in the practice of medicine and surgery are collaboration, sincerity, preparation and precision. 

    Dr. Lin is interested in global health and healthcare equity for underserved, vulnerable populations, including resource allocation, access and safe delivery. Since 2008, Dr. Lin has participated in multiple medical missions to the Philippines, Guatemala, Peru and Uganda. Her hobbies include scuba diving, reading and exploring new places.
