  • K. J just celebrated three years since her last knee patellar disclocation-the longest streak she's gone in her entire life. K. J was born with patellar instability. The condition caused her knees to chronically buckle beneath her and dislocate at any moment. She lived with the condition despite her active lifestyle and job in construction in NYC, but after one particularly traumatic incident when a walk with her husband quickly turned into a hospital stay, she knew she needed to take action. Just one month after seeing sports medicine specialist Dr. Mehul Shah, she decided to have a surgery that would change her life.

  • 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).

  • 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.

  • Dr. Shah is the best. A shoulder injury from decades ago had begun causing increased pain and restriction of motion and was driving me nuts. It obviously was time for medical input. I had begun seeing an orthopedist at another well-known hospital but became frustrated with his lack of focus and scattered approach, and my PT recommended Dr. Shah.

  • In the winter of 2013, I suffered a torn ACL as a result of a skiing accident. After doing extensive online research of different orthopaedic surgeons in New York City, I decided upon my initial consultation with Dr. Shah to review the extent of my injury and what options I had moving forward. I consider myself very lucky that I chose to have Dr. Shah treat me. I found the office staff to be incredibly prompt, efficient, and friendly.

  • At the end of 2011 I was involved in a bicycle accident which resulted in a very large tear to my right rotator cuff. I was sixty four years old at the time, and had been actively working as a stagehand backstage on Broadway since 1973. I could not raise my arm. My primary physician recommended that I consult with Dr. Shah, and following a comprehensive examination he performed arthroscopic surgery on my rotator cuff.

  • I found Dr. Shah through blind luck, and now I can't say enough good things about him. Well, lucky is a strange word to use given where I started out, but if something like this was going to happen, I was very lucky to find Dr. Shah. My right knee was extremely swollen and the knee was locked in place. I couldn't do much more than limp. NYU Trinity's location is downstairs from my office, and I walked in and asked for an appointment with the next available doctor who knew anything about knees.
