Bio

Ho-Sheng Lin, MD, FACS is a Professor and Chair at the Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery at Wayne State University (WSU) School of Medicine and chief of Otolaryngology at Karmanos Cancer Institute. He received his MD from Yale University School of Medicine and then went on to complete an Otolaryngology residency at The New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center and New York University Medical Center. After his residency, Dr. Lin completed a fellowship training in Head and Neck Surgical Oncology at Stanford University. He joined the Department of Otolaryngology at WSU in 2002. Dr. Lin’s clinical interests include surgical treatment of cancer and disease involving the mouth, throat, neck, thyroid, parathyroid, and salivary glands as well as surgical treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and snoring. He has special interest in the use of new and minimally invasive technology in head and neck surgery. He is the first surgeon in the state of Michigan to use the robotic technology (da Vinci robot) to perform surgery on the larynx (voice box) and pharynx (throat) for treatment of cancer and sleep apnea. He is also the first Otolaryngologist in Michigan to perform a robotic-assisted thyroidectomy (thyroid surgery without a neck incision). Dr. Lin is also a Principal Investigator in the use of novel and minimally invasive surgical approaches for treatment of OSA. He has been involved in several industry sponsored clinical trials such as the Pillar implant (Restore Medical) and hypoglossal nerve implant (Inspire Medical) to assess the effectiveness of these new surgical approaches. Dr. Lin has published extensively with over 55 publications in peer reviewed journals. He has served in the editorial board of several journals including Laryngoscope, World Journal of Clinical Oncology, Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Journal of Tumor, and Case Reports in Otolaryngology. He also served as an ad hoc reviewer for many other journals.
