A graduate of the Johns Hopkins University and the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, Dr. Shah completed his residency in orthopaedic surgery at the prestigious NYU Langone Orthopedic Hospital.
An algorithm that analyzes MRI images and automatically detects small changes in knee joints over time could be used in the development of new treatments for arthritis
Injuries to the articular cartilage of the knee are common. They alter the normal distribution of weightbearing forces and predispose patients to the development of degenerative joint disease.

Dr. Shah performed Medial Patellofemoral Ligament Reconstruction on K. J. "In the last three years, I've climbed 18 4,000 foot peaks in the White Mountains, and walked down the aisle in marriage in 4 inch heels; just a couple things I never dreamed of being able to do before my surgery," says K. J, who now works in construction. "I'm humbled at what my body has been able to achieve thanks to Dr. Shah and my NYU Langone team. I can't believe I am where I am".
I am coming up on my three year anniversary for my ACL surgery and i just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the amazing work you did. As you may or may not remember i was very concerned with the abilities i would loose after surgery, if i could still workout the way i wanted, how soon i could be back in the gym (hah).
Well, I am very happy to report my progress. After over a year of PT and countless hours with my coach working hard to build muscle back where I had lost it - I am now stronger then ever before.
Over the summer, I injured my shoulder. It was most likely a combination of weight lifting and throwing the football around without warming up properly. In November I couldn't deal with the pain and weakening of my arm so I logged into ZocDoc and found Dr. Shah. I was impressed with his education and experience so I scheduled an appointment. After a thorough consultation he was very confident I had tore my labrum. An MRI would confirm his diagnosis. We scheduled surgery for December 6th.
