I couldn't recommend Dr. Shah more highly. At first, I was reticent to agree to TKR surgery based on the discomfort and recovery period. Dr. Shah and his excellent team immediately put me at ease with their caring manner and careful attention to my concerns,. I appreciated his honest no-nonsense approach to my care, and his excellence and experience as a surgeon is the BEST you'll find anywhere. With his highly skilled team...you are in good hands! These are professionals at their best.

I was recommended to Dr Shah by my GP. I was in terrible hip pain. I met with Dr. Shah for the first time i think it was 6/18/17 or close to that, He schedualed me asap..8/4/17. now 6 weeks later and still a little sore but going back to work 8/18/17. I was very happy with Dr. Shah. I felt he knew what he was doing. At this point i would recommend him to anyone!!! .

Dr. Shah performed a TKR of my (right) knee. Upon meeting him and learning he trained with top Chicago surgeon on ‘my list’ - I bit the bullet and let him perform the surgery. I am glad I went to Dr. Shah at Columbia. My scar is smaller (incision was glued – no stitches!) & pain was less than others I know who had the procedure. After limping for MANY years, I now walk with a normal gait. Dr. Shah has cutting edge techniques & personally follows up with his patients post-op. A rare find.

Dr. Shah and his team did a great job, exceeding all expectations. I was up and walking within ours of surgery and doing so with a walker or cane with a few days. I couldn't recommend him more.

To ANYONE considering Total Knee Replacement, I strongly advise that you make an appointment with Dr. Roshan Shah! My name is Michael J. Ryan and I was very uncomfortable about having the surgery, even though I was going through years of excrusiating pain. After meeting with Dr. Shah, I was convinced that I had the right person to perform the surgery. On August 11, 2017 Dr. Shah performed the surgery and yesterday I had my first visit Post-Op and my knee is NOW at Ninety degrees and pain free.

The experience I had with Dr Shah was absolutely wonderful , he made me feel like a real human being and was very caring, He explained to me all the procedures of my surgery in detail and what was going to happen after the surgery, I cannot be more happier than what I am after my surgery, if feels I wasted years of my life in pain , had I know that I would feel like a new person today , I would have had this surgery 2 years ago when it was first scheduled, Dr Shah is a compassionate surgeon

I recently underwent a complete hip transplant with Dr Shah and his amazing team at Columbia Presbyterian hospital. I'd been suffering for years with severe pain from my hip, but I was to afraid to have the surgery needed to correct the problem. I was eventually advised to see Dr. shah, and it turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life. Dr. Shah and his team, from start to finish were professional, kind and reassuring; completely calming my concerns. The surgery was quick and so was m

Thank You Dr Shaw !!! Its a rainy day and I was thinking about how much pain I was in last year and how hard it was to tie my shoe.My new hip is working perfect. You gave me back the freedom to live a normal life without pain! I am a at risk patient with a enlarged heart. Dr Shaw was willing to help me and he will help you . I had been to 5 other doctors that would not operate on me. From the first meeting he was magnificent and now I am a new man!
in Jamaica, NY |
I am very grateful and happy with Dr. Shah. I went in for a hip replacement 2 years ago and I have had an incredible experience from the very first visit. He is very kind and attentive, any question i had he was more than willing to answer (and i had a lot of questions). He explained everything extremely well and i couldn't have asked for a better surgeon. My hip feels great, i have had no pain at all and it is just as great as ever. Thank you so much Dr. Shah.

I was virtually immobile with bilateral hip necrosis when I came to Dr. Shah for a second opinion after 7 months of pain and surgery delays with my first Dr. Dr. Shah scheduled surgery immediately and replaced both hips. Now, after just one month of physical therapy I have left the wheelchair and walker behind and am walking with a cane only. My physical therapist attributed my fast recovery to Dr. Shah's skill. He was a godsend and I am so grateful. I would highly recommend Dr Shah to anyone.

Dr. Shah is the best. He replaced both my hips, with six weeks in between surgeries. Didn't believe it could be done, but he is both a skilled surgeon and an attentive and caring person. I had managed to stave off surgery for 15 years, but Dr. Shah was quick to tell me when my time had come. And he was right. It's 3 weeks after the second surgery and I'm walking further and with less pain than I have in 2 years. I've had almost no pain post surgery.

I'm not one to write reviews, but after not being able to walk for 3 months I am extremely happy to say that now I can. I was Dr. Macoby patient for a few months and although he is a good a doctor, I have to say that Dr. Shah is my miracle doctor. I was with constant agonizing/ sharp pains and I had every since I had my surgery, I am pain free and able to walk again. Thank you Dr. Shah for being a caring , patient and for being my miracle doctor.

My experience with Dr. Shah has been phenomenal! A true godsend. I had a total knee replacement with Dr. Shah and the recovery has been unbelievably fast and with much less pain than I had anticipated, range of motion is excellent. This was my 9th bone surgery and not only was I skeptical (a few failed and painful surgeries) but I had prepared for the worse. Imagine my surprise when I was up and to the bathroom the same day as my surgery. The scar is thin and beautiful!
in Bronx, NY |
Dr. Shah was thorough and extremely thoughtful in his diagnosis and care when I became a patient in June 2016. I ultimately needed knee replacement surgery which took place in January 2017. Incredibly, I was able to return to work in just 3 weeks with the 2nd knee scheduled for March. All in all, it was a good experience with a better than expected outcome which I know was due to Dr. Shah and his team's expertise. I appreciate all their help, kindness and consideration!

For me you are the best orthopedic of the United States Of America and of the world. I was operated from my knee.I find myself okay.Thank you for your attention!Also thank you for everyone who assists him!For me you have more than 5 stars!Thank you so much see you soon!

My hip deteriorated rather rapidly due to avascular necrosis. A total hip replacement was in order. I appreciated his call the night before the surgery to see if I was ok and if I had any questions. The surgery was uneventful. We spoke after surgery and he intervened with physical therapy at the hospital to ensure that I got moving quickly. He followed up at home and ensured everything was ok. I was back to work in three weeks with minimal pain. My legs now match and am walking fine.
in Poughkeepsie, NY |
Dr. Shah is straightforward and thorough in his explanation of the problem and recommended course of action. He has the patience to answer questions and demonstrates a desire for the patient to feel at ease and informed of what's to be done. While quite efficient, he does this in a pleasant manner. Day of surgery he remains accessible to the patient and accompanying family member. He coordinates well with other surgeons for excellent care.
in New York, NY |
Dr. Shah did a total hip replacement on my right side, and I walked with no pain in two weeks. I can't wait for him to do the left side. I've healed remarkably in a month and you can barely see the scar. I recommend him to everyone in need of a hip replacement. The best surgeon in the world

Dr. Shah is an amazing doctor and wonderfully warm person who really cares about his patients and their well-being. He is a brilliant surgeon, very meticulous about his work and makes it a priority to listen to his patients. I am very thankful to Dr. Shah for an incredible job and am very happy I made the choice to get my knee replacement with him. Also, Dr. Shah's objective for his patients is to experience little or not pain. I have experience very little pain since the surgery. I am amazed!

I found Dr. Shah to be very helpful with explaining my condition and why it needed to be address. He also feel he has a wonder manner with his patients.

Dr. Shah performed an anterior hip replacement on me 3 weeks ago, it has been spectacular. Since the day of the operation pain has been near zero. The operation was on Friday morning , I was home Sunday (could have been Sat. but Sunday due to my pick-up). I used a walker Mon, and was walking 8 blocks with the therapist on the following Saturday, with no cane! Range of movement is great, pain is gone, incision is all healed and barely a trace. I am thrilled with the experience and success.

I had my 3 month checkup with Dr. Shah post hip surgery in August. I had a full hip replacement on April 25, 2016 and I haven't walked this well for years! Went to the Adirondacks on August 22nd for a week and climbed two mountains, one of the over 3000 feet it was a tough climb up but the view was spectacular. Thank you, Dr. Shah, it is great to be pain free and completely mobile again. My next adventure is back to running my 4 miles+. Best, Peggy Daly

For many years I have been having problems with my knees I have tried many different types of treatment but no help in 2015 imet Dr Shah right away I felt at ease with him and decided to trust him to do my knees replacement last year he did my right knee it went very well it is now pain free, after a year he replace my left knee 7/11\2016 and nine days after I am able to walk without any assistance although I do have some pain it is tolerable with pain medicine I highly recommend him
in New York, NY |
Doctor Shah is the most attentive doctor I have ever had. He spent more time with me discussing my operation than any doctor ever has before. In addition he found the time to text me updates, and made himself available at all times. He took the time to explain all parts of my operation to me including what to expect pre-op and post-op. He is the model all doctors should follow.
in New York, NY |
Prior to meeting with Dr. Shah the first time, I had a consultation with an orthopedic surgeon at Hospital for Special Surgery. I was so dissatisfied with both his exam and the way he interacted with me, that I sought out another opinion. I cannot compliment Dr. Shah enough; both his exam and bedside manner were/are excellent! I never felt rushed by him, and he answered all my questions and addressed my concerns thoroughly. He treated me with care and respect. NYP is lucky to have him!
