Dr. Shah served as the Chief Resident while at Yale. In 2005, was also the recipient of the "Wayne O. Southwick Award" as the graduating chief resident exemplifying the qualities and characteristics of Dr. Southwick (former Chairman of Orthopaedic, Yale New Haven Hospital), for leadership in spinal surgery. Dr. Shah performs thousands of spinal surgeries each year including minimally invasive, reconstructive and revision surgeries encompassing the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine.

He was inspired to become an orthopedic spine surgeon after studying the painful symptoms of chronic back pain. He has a strong desire to get his patients back to enjoying an active lifestyle. He credits the advancements in outpatient spine surgery as one of the greatest benefits to his practice. Outpatient, less invasive techniques in spine surgery allows Dr. Shah’s patients the opportunity to recovery at home, rather than in the hospital, reducing stress, increasing overall comfort and convenience.
