About Dr. Jason Shin

Jason J. Shin was born in South Korea and grew up in Alberta. After attending medical school at the University of Alberta, he completed his orthopedic surgery residency at the University of Saskatchewan. During residency, he spent time in Chicago at Rush University Medical Center to gain additional research experience. After residency, he continued to move east to subspecialize in orthopaedic sports medicine at the University of Pittsburgh. He had exposure to treating world class athletes and was fortunate to be able to assist in the coverage of the Penguins hockey team during their Stanley Cup winning season.

With over 30 published original articles and book chapters, some of his works have been recognized with awards by various orthopedic societies including ISAKOS, AAOS, COA, AOSSM, and AANA. He is one of few orthopedic surgeons in Canada that serves as a principal reviewer for the American Journal of Sports Medicine, which is the top impact factor publication in orthopedic surgery.

He works out of FH Wigmore Regional Hospital in Moose Jaw and has special interest in arthroscopic surgery. He is happily married to Grace and together they have two energetic boys who are happy to call Saskatchewan home.
