Dr. Lin was the first surgeon in the U.S. to perform endoscopic plication for gastroesophageal reflux at Emory University Hospital Midtown in June 2004. He is an officially designated Lap Band proctor, allowing him to certify surgeons in the minimally invasive procedure; directed the development of a single incision, laparoscopic technique for resection of colon cancer; and worked with Dr. Juan Sarmiento to develop unique techniques for laparoscopic-assisted formal liver resections, such as the performance of laparoscopic hepatectomy though incisions that are much smaller than those of a standard open procedure.
