“I have been a patient of Dr Chin’s since 2014. He is very thorough with his explanations and he does not rush my appointments. He answers all of my questions and addresses all of my concerns in simple language to ensure that I have a clear understanding.”

“I have been a long time patient of Dr. Chin and was so pleased to have him as my surgeon. He explained everything clearly regarding my issues and procedures. He has always been reliable and friendly. The staff is amazing, they always have gone above and beyond to ensure my needs are met. Dr. Chin truly surpassed my initial expectations. I have to say Dr. Chin has not only been a great doctor, he has also become a great friend.”

“For three years I was not able to sleep on my stomach due to injuries to my neck received from the motor vehicle accident but thanks to Dr Kingsley Chin and the staff of the Less Institute I am now able to sleep on my stomach. I can safely say that I am well on my way….God is truly amazing.”

Meet  Our Founder Dr. Kingsley R. Chin

Dr. Kingsley R Chin feels blessed to be a professor and orthopedic spine surgeon who came from humble beginnings.  Born in Buff Bay Portland Jamaica he completed high school at Titchfield in Port Antonio Jamaica.  He excelled at soccer and academics, which earned him a spot on the Jamaica Junior National Football team and a scholarship to Columbia University in New York City where he graduated President of the Student Government and Ivy League Player of the Year in soccer. Academically he earned degrees in Electrical Engineering and Mathematics. He loves to teach students as a professor at Florida International University, Florida Atlantic University, and the University of Technology (UTECH) in Kingston Jamaica.

He is the first Jamaican-born honors graduate of Harvard Medical School.  He spent 10 years at Harvard to complete his medical degree, an internship, residency, and fellowship specialized in orthopedic reconstructive surgery to be an expert.  He went to Cleveland to specialize in spine surgery before he joined the University of Pennsylvania as the Chief Spine Surgeon and Assistant Professor of Orthopedic Surgery. In 2007 he moved to South Florida to start the Institute for Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (IMIS) which later became The LESS Institute and is now the LES CLINIC. Our vision is to build a world class center of excellence for outpatient spine and orthopedics so patients can have the least invasive surgeries we defined as less exposure surgery (LES) that are safe, effective, and affordable.  We take pride in caring for our patients, inventing new patented treatments, and publishing the results of our treatment in journals for other doctors and patients to learn. We hope you will research us and listen to our patients give their testimonials on their results.  Patients like Chris Gayle a world class Jamaican cricketer whose career was in jeopardy, so he came to Dr. Chin who performed spine surgery to save his back in September 2015 and in December 2015 he won the Gold Cup in Australia and today is fully active and pain free.  We strive to give all patients an improved active lifestyle after our treatment.
