Seung Jin Yi, M.D.

Location Availability

I enjoy using my compassion, skills, and expertise to help my patients achieve an active and healthy lifestyle.

Dr. Yi is fellowship trained and board certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery.   He is a member of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine. He firmly believes in non-surgical treatments and that non-operative methods are successful in most cases. However, if surgery is required, Dr. Yi can perform the latest, most advanced minimally invasive arthroscopic surgeries available. His fellowship training was in sports medicine and his expertise is in shoulder, hip and knee surgery. He is one of the few surgeons trained in hip arthroscopy that preserves the hip joint using small incisions instead of the traditional large incisions that require longer recovery times. His training also includes the use of ultrasound for diagnosis and treatment, including ultrasound-guided hip injections.

Dr. Yi has presented his research nationally and has authored various book chapters in sports medicine. During his training, he gained experience in the treatment of collegiate and professional athletes, assisting with team physicians for the Chicago Bears, Chicago Fire, and the Chinese Olympic Volleyball Team.

Dr. Yi was born in Jeju, South Korea but grew up in St. Petersburg, Florida. He obtained his undergraduate degree in biology from Emory University and earned his Doctor of Medicine from Drexel University College of Medicine before completing his residency in orthopaedic surgery at Northeast Ohio Medical University. He then completed additional fellowship training in Orthopaedic Surgery Sports Medicine at the University of Chicago, where he trained in advanced, minimally invasive arthroscopic and open techniques.

Dr. Yi enjoys spending time with his wife and three sons. He also likes to fish, hike, and play soccer and volleyball.
