      Great bedside manner and very informative
      in Oak Lawn, IL |
      Dr. Shah was great. Surgery was not bad and recovery was smooth.
      Dr.shah was by far the best surgeon I've ever had. Thanks for the great care
      in Hinsdale, IL |
      excellent bed side manner. pleasant demeanor always and an excellent surgeon for my family's shoulder and knee problems
      in Fitchburg, WI |
      Dr, Shah has performed both of my knee reconstructions (same knee). He is extremely knowledgeable and helps patient through the graft decision making process, planning for pre and post surgery, and is able to answer ANY questions you may have regarding your operation. Knee surgery is also a 2-way street IMO, and a patient should come prepared to appointments with questions to help your surgeon make determinations for course of treatment and best possible outcomes.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
