Mehul R. Shah, MD is an Assistant Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at the New York University-Hospital of Joint Diseases. He is a board certified, fellowship trained orthopaedic surgeon. Dr. Shah specializes in the orthopaedic care of sports related injuries as well as arthroscopic and reconstructive surgery of the shoulder, knee, and ankle.
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).
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.
K. J just celebrated three years since her last knee patellar dislocation-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.

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.
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.
Arthroscopic surgery, also known as arthroscopy, is a surgical procedure to visualize, diagnose, and treat problems inside a joint using a specialized instrument known as an arthroscope.
