Dr. Shah rocks! He replaced my husband’s knees and recently his shoulder (with the next one to follow next year). We are so happy with our experience at Dr. Shah and Richmond Bone & Joint and continue to spread the word to our family and friends!

I have been seeing Dr Shah for my bad knees for the past 7 years. 2 surgeries (clean up of meniscus) in both knees...both went smoothly and back to normal. I have sent my family members and friends to him and they have all been very pleased. Dr Shah is the best orthopedic surgeon in Houston!

So, when you're explaining to him the type of athletic activity or movement related to your pain or injury, he knows exactly what...Read More
