Dr. Katja Lin, DVM, DACVS-SA
Dr. Katja Lin works alongside her good friend and owner Dr. Justin Uhl. Dr. Lin graduated from the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine in 2006 and completed a Small Animal Rotating Internship at the same institution.
In 2008 Dr. Lin was taken on as an Orthopedic Research Fellow at the Orthopedic Research Lab at the University of Minnesota, where she started two prospective research projects. Both studies led to multiple national conference presentations and peer-reviewed journal publications.
During her Small Animal Surgical Residency Program at the University of Minnesota in 2009, she spent time performing mobile surgeries at dozens of practices around the Las Vegas valley. Through this experience, she learned to appreciate the challenges and nuances of mobile practice and decided that Summit Veterinary Surgery Service is where she wanted to practice.
Dr. Lin has a deep passion for canine musculoskeletal health and has committed herself to the field by staying involved through the Veterinary Orthopedic Society, where she serves on the board and is an active member of the Continuing Education Committee for the American College of Veterinary Surgeons and is part of the faculty track of North American, a prestigious organization committed to raising the bar in teaching orthopedic surgery.
Dr. Lin still lives in a small village outside of Las Vegas, where she enjoys the desert lifestyle, spending as much time outside climbing, trail running, mountain biking, and hiking with her dog Rokee.
