Primary & Revision Hip & Knee Replacements, Computer-Assisted Surgery, Minimally-Invasive Surgery
The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Shah.
“I felt total confidence in Dr. Shah from my first appointment when I needed a hip replacement because I could not walk without severe pain. It is now a little over three months since my surgery and I am walking regularly up to two miles a day and I am certain I will be soon able to walk further and to hike again. Throughout the experience I felt that Dr. Shaw was a good listener and communicator.”

“My knee replacement surgery with Dr. Shah was very professional from the first appointment to release. He thoroughly explained the procedure and answered all my questions to my satisfaction both before and after surgery. My scar from surgery is amazingly thin and grows less noticeable every day. I am extremely satisfied with my results. It’s so nice to be able to walk pain free!”
– Jane I.
“Dr. Shah told me he could help me with the pain in my right hip and he did exactly what he said he would do! I literally woke up in the recovery room pain free and have been ever since! This has given me my life back!”

“Dr. Shah is very caring. Explains things so you understand the details of your particular case. He has done one hip and two of my knees and I recommend him highly.”
– Paula H.
“Dr. Shah is a MIRACLE worker! He replaced my hip - and then my knee. Speedy, efficient timing of surgery. Great info provided before and after. Good follow up. Feeling good and back to work within 2-3 weeks of each surgery. I could hardly walk when I first went to see him. Dr. Shah gave me my life back. I can do ANYTHING - including riding a bicycle - which I hadn't been able to do in over 20 years! I often teased him that I was going to build a shrine in his honor! I came back to Slocum after my daughter received excellent treatment a few years ago - after being told by local orthopedists her situation was "hopeless." Slocum rocks. Dr. Shah REALLY rocks and will forever be my hero. Thanks so much to Dr. Shah for giving me my life back and allowing me to live fully and be the kind of grandma I always wanted to be - involved and active.”
– Elizabeth H.
“Very good Doctor. Happy with everything. If I have questions Doctor takes the time to answer everything. After my hip surgery, I had almost no pain due to the surgery. I have had more pain with a bad tooth.”
– Dave D.
“My knee specialist did a good job, answered all my questions, and was very through in providing me with information about a knee replacement.”
– Jonathon O.
“I always have a pleasant experience with my appointment with Dr. Shah. I have cortisone injections in both of my knees. He always preforms them quickly and with great skill. My mother, also had Dr. Shah as her surgeon for her hip replacement. She was very happy with the results. I would highly recommend Dr. Shah.”
– Carol B.
“Always attentive and smiling. Great Doctor.”
– Stephen G.
“Dr. Shah is very caring and compassionate. He listens to what I have to say and explains things to me in terms I can understand. If I have questions or concerns he listens and addresses them. When surgery is involved he explains the procedure and the pros and cons. I like it when I am involved in the planning of any procedure, not just the surgeon saying I'm doing it this way and there is no discussion with me.”
– Diana F.
“Dr. Shah is a wonderful doctor. I had a knee - Replacement he his a outstanding job. If i ever have my left knee done, I would have him do it in a heart beat. Dr. Shah is a caring person. Thank you Dr.Shah.”

“Slocum is always on time and courteous.”

– Jane G.
“I am extremely satisfied with Dr. Shah who did my knee replacement surgery and Dr. Straub who helped me make the decision to have it done. It is sometimes hard to make appointments in a timely manner. I have been a patient before Slocum was Slocum. I appreciate the skills (both medical and human) your entire staff provide.”
– Douglas H.

“I was always informed on what would happen with my hip replacement. The operating room staff were so friendly and put me at ease. Dr. Shah was so easy to talk to. I would recommend Slocum to everyone.”
– Judith S.
“My provider was a saint. Dr. Shah fixed not just my knee, but my hip. Slocum had provided excellent care to my daughter, so I knew where to go. I was right. Heck, first surgery was so great, I came back for seconds! lol. I recommend him to everyone I meet with orthopedic issues. The staff were always friendly and kind and helpful. God bless Dr. Shah for "saving" my life and allowing me to life again like someone my age should! I can walk, hike, dance, clean the house - simple live and play pain free with great mobility. I will be forever grateful.”
– Elizabeth H.
“This was the My seond time he did my knee. It was very successful for me. The second time I healed faster than the first one. If I need anymore work done I will have him do it.”
– Suzane W.
“Obviously, he was professional. He also evaluated and explained the process thoroughly so I could decide on surgery. They took care of me from beginning, thru the end and right on to a reunion of recent replacement patients. I asked to give me a good sense of what was to come and he was happy to provide this. I was also encouraged to have two coaches, since my husband had to return to work quite soon after the surgery.”
