Dr. Shaw's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Shaw "Dr. Shaw completed his undergraduate and graduate studies with the world's foremost scholars in medicine at Boston University. In 1994, he was fortunate to work with Dr. Irwin Goldstein, one of the original investigators for a little blue pill that eventually was called Viagra®. Dr. Goldstein took Dr. Shaw under his wing, and the rest is history. Following this, he was accepted to the Tulane Urology program in New Orleans with Dr. Raju Thomas. At Tulane he was fortunate to receive top notch training in minimally invasive and laparoscopic surgery, and participated in the first da Vinci Robotic Surgery program in the Gulf Coast in 2000. Dr. Shaw is proud to have lived with, and help care for, the wonderful people of New Orleans during his time there. Dr. Shaw moved back to his home state of Texas and picked Austin to be his home in 2004, but never lost his taste for New Orleans cuisine. Dr. Shaw enjoys being in the middle of the action, beginning with his appointment as Chief Resident at Tulane. In Austin, Dr. Shaw has become a respected leader in the medical community, having been appointed as the Chief of Staff at St. David's, North Austin Medical Center, a Thomson Reuters Top 100 Hospital in the United States. Additionally, he has received the "Top Urologist" and the "Patients' Choice" Award several years in a row. Dr. Shaw is also proud to be one of two physicians to be a part of the Kidney Transplant team for Central Texas and North Austin Medical Center. In addition, Dr. Shaw's expertise in minimally invasive, and robotic, laparoscopic surgery has placed him amongst a select group of surgeons from Intuitive Surgical, manufacturer of the da Vinci Robotics system, to train other surgeons from around the country. Dr. Shaw enjoys teaching as well, and actively gives lectures around Austin and throughout Texas on all aspects of urology. He has also been a guest on ABC, NBC, and CBS to discuss urologic issues with the Austin community. Between all that, he had a chance to write a book used by thousands of young residents, "How to Find The Right Job After Residency". Dr. Shaw loves learning, and actively participates in local, regional, and international conferences to stay on the leading edge of his field. Dr. Shaw is board certified by the American Board of Urology, and is an active part of several major medical societies. When not working, Dr. Shaw loves running at Town Lake, and anything that involves being on the water. Dr. Shaw is a proud part of the Austin community, along with his wonderful wife and daughter. Active in the community, he is proud to work alongside his wife with several organizations throughout Austin."

I recently had the no scalpel procedure performed at Dr Shaw's office, I was very nervous but soon after arriving my nerves were put at ease. I must give kudos to Mary, Miranda, Dr Shaw and his entire staff. They were exceptionally professional. I would highly recommend Dr Shaw.
