Dr. Shah replaced my left hip—absolutely amazing surgeon! I was walking unassisted next day as well as driving. I was back to lifting, including light deadlifts, after 3 weeks and squatting after 6. Never had an ounce of pain nor did I take any painkillers—only ibuprofen. My friends/acquaintances that have had surgery are amazed! I had interviewed 5 other surgeons—Dr Shah took the time to listen to me, explain his approach, and gave me a feeling of confidence in his abilities. His approach is so far advanced beyond other surgeons that have you “sitting” for six weeks. If you have been putting off hip replacement, don’t wait any longer and speak with Dr Shah.

Dr. shah did my hip surgery for hip impingement. He performed hip arthroscopy with multiple repairs. I have been suffering with this for several years. From the day of the surgery until now ( I am 7 weeks post op) I have not had ANY pain! It is a miracle. I am walking, riding a bike, etc and feeling great! My only regret is that I didn't have the surgery sooner.

Dr Shah is without question as great a surgeon as you can find. He did a hip replacement on me & @ no point did I have discomfort. He’s extremely informative about all the things involved before, during & after surgery. He gladly answered any & all questions I had. And I asked more than 1 silly question. I’ll be forever thankful to him for getting me in for surgery quickly so I could return to work. His staff was outstanding as well. I couldn’t say enough great things about them. This is truly 1 hell of a Dr. I’m blessed to have had him do my surgery. I returned back to work as a firefighter without any restrictions in 6 weeks. A true gentleman. A class act

My experience with Dr Shah and his staff was fantastic. From my first visit, surgery, recovery, rehab and discharge I could not have asked for a better experience. His RN Brandon and his PA Katherine were just as fantastic. Any questions or concerns where taken care of immediately. From knee surgery to back to work in 6 weeks. If I rate my whole experience 0-10, I would say 11.

Follow-up to a previous review...............6 weeks to the day after hip replacement I spent 5 days in Acadia National Park (Maine) hiking trails with only my walking stick to provide security in not taking any unnecessary risks. Made it back home feeling better than ever!

Dr Shah is an excellent surgeon. Surgery was at 7AM and I was home by 2:00PM. Pain level was totally manageable and at 2-1/2 weeks I was walking without a cane. Follow-up was good and staff very helpful.

Dr. Shah was kind, attentive, and extremely approachable. He articulated the options for my treatment, and then went back over them when I had questions. He clearly explained my problem and the next steps. I can't remember the last time that happened (unfortunately).

I cannot thank Dr. Shah enough. His friendly and very accommodating staff made my wife and me feel very much at ease. I was back at work 6 weeks from my surgery date, even using public transportation for my commute. I would highly recommend him and his outpatient surgical facility, to anyone who is having hip or knee problems.

I had a total knee replacement revision done in 2015 due to some really bad complications as a result of a previous knee surgeries and a knee replacement done by other orthopedic surgeons. I was not able to walk very well and was in constant pain. Then I met Dr. Ritesh Shah from Illinois Bone and Joint Institute, my orthopedic savior! His experience changed my future. He removed the old knee replacement and gave me one that corrected my problems. Everything is still great 3 years later.

Dr. Shah is an excellent surgeon and Doctor in general. He replaced my hip in 2012, finally ending six years of pain I had been experiencing after another surgeon did a very poor job in two previous surgeries six years prior. He did not just jump right into recommending a hip replacement until all other less-invasive options had been tried. In 2014 Dr. Shah also performed two knee scopes due to my having a torn meniscus two times in two different locations four months apart. Very patient Dr!

I had my right knee replaced in 2014 and my left knee on July 25th. I have complete confidence in Dr. Shah. He takes the time to explain your procedure and answers ALL your questions and concerns. Both procedures went as planned and I have better quality of life. I highly recommend Dr. Shah.

his expertise and thoroughness in full knee replacement was vital to my quick recovery and increasing range of motion in my knee. He made sure the MRI and X-rays were used to design a "new knee" that would fit not only my leg, but my lifestyle as well. As an athletic individual, it was important for me to find a surgeon who understood my goals and personal outcomes when seeking the prospects of returning to a quality of life I had lost. His PA Kathryn is incredibly knowledgeable and caring.

I have nothing but success from the hip replacement performed by Dr. Shah on Dec. 12, 2017. I have returned to work in 5 weeks. There was no pain and I am completely satisfied with the outcome. The speed of recovery was remarkable. Stairs were not a problem from day 1. Needless to say, I feel wonderful and would definitely recommend Dr. Shah to all my family & friends. Thank you, Dr. Shah, for getting me back to enjoy my activities and life.

Dr. Shah replaced both of my hips. My experience has been horrible. They have NEVER been on time for an appointment - usually at least one hour late. Return calls are unheard of. You must leave several messages and many times just make an appointment before you will get any type of response. He did not set realistic expectations on recovery from my first surgery which directly affected my home life, as we had to reschedule some trips and hire more help. Overall, customer service HORRIBLE

Dr. Shaw performed hip replacement surgery on both my hips, 6 weeks apart. I found him to be very personable, professional, and caring. He was interested in getting the best possible outcome as soon as possible. I am extremely pleased with both the process and the outcome of both surgeries. His Rapid Recovery Reality approach is refreshing to me and shows that he thinks about the patient from the first visit thru the final stages of recovery, not just the surgical procedure itself.
