About

Mr Shah has been involved in orthopaedics since 1998. He has 3 orthopaedic degrees from India, 3 from the UK (including the FRCS in trauma and orthopaedics) and he is a GMC-registered consultant in trauma and orthopaedics. 

His specialist interest is in hips and knees, and he believes that narrowing his focus in this way allows him to deliver better outcomes. His focus is on delivering an ethical and sensible consult to start with. An ability to explain the pathology in simple terms and then laying out the options available is vital to this.

With hips and knees, He deals with all pathologies including sports injuries, painful or unstable joints due to early wear and tear, and severe forms of arthritis. Treatment options may range from gaining an understanding of the problem and choosing a conservative approach, to physiotherapy or injections to the joint or surrounding area, to keyhole surgery and various forms of joint replacements.

 

Mr Shah has been working in the NorthWest since 2003 and has enjoyed learning from some excellent surgeons in some well-run hospitals. This includes working at Wrightington Hospital, one of the centres of excellence for orthopaedic work, as the John Charnley Fellow learning how to tackle complex hip and knee problems.

 

Mr Shah is a father of two- a teenage son and a younger daughter (who still thinks he is great). In his free time, he loves watching and playing cricket and swimming and spending time with his children.

A very nice man who took his time with me and my family explaining everything to me about my operation.He even took the time to ring my daughter personally to let her know how the op had gone.

I have had 2 total knee replacements done by Mr. Shah and am very happy he has got rid of those terrible painful knees. I would point out that one has to work extremely hard to get the best results from the operation. I did all the recommended exercises probably twice as many times as I was asked even to the point of giving myself pain. I am so pleased I did as I was able to go back to playing golf after 8 weeks, I was in the gym after 5 weeks and putting as much muscle back as I possibly could. I also climbed Castle Crag in Borrowdale after 10 weeks. It paid off greatly as I found after 2 or 3 gym sessions concentrating on thigh muscles I had the confidence to come down stairs properly, and was very happy when I managed it ok. The knees will never be as flexible as the originals but I'm happy to loose some flexibility for a lack of pain. Mr. Shah did warn me well before my operation that things wont be the same as before I.E. you will never be able to sit on your haunches again , But things like this are a small price to pay for painless reliable knees. My experience with Mr Shah has been second to none. My second knee replacement has been more successful than the first as Mr.Shah told me he has a new method of doing the operation. The anaesthetist for my second operation was also better as there was no rush to lie down after the spinal block went in. He also kept me asleep for the whole op unlike my first op which I was awake for most of the time. Kneeling down is uncomfortable now but achievable which can be a hindrance in the bedroom department . All in all I am delighted with Mr Shah as his excellent team who looked after me in all areas and I would recommend anybody with bone rubbing on bone in their knees to have new ones for a pain free life after op.

I have had two knee replacement operations with Mr Shah and cannot praise him highly enough for his skills as a surgeon and the care I received from both himself and his colleagues. Within days I was moving and walking better and can only say this achievement was down to his expertise and care.

From the 1st visit i found Mr shah very professional but with a kind manner, he listened to all my problems, and was sympathetic to my pain. He fitted my new knee, the scar is fabulous the knee operation went well, and he came to visit afterwords and informed me all went to plan. I would recommend his talent to anyone, and am hoping for him to do my other knee in the next year or so as soon as this one is fully working.

Mr Amit Shah

From day 1 dr shah highlighted my condition, put me at ease but also highlighting the various options to me on a hip replacement at a relative young age. In the lead up to the operation dr shah was always available & also on the build up in the hospital to the operation was keeping me informed. Operation has gone better than a thought, again aftercare was spot on and now 12 months later I have been discharged with all parties happy with the outcome of the operation & how the new hip has responded. All in all a positive outcome to a big operation

Mr Amit Shah

i think the ability to get along with your doctor or surgeon is vital to a good outcome!

Mr shah operated on me twice this year. Hip replacement in January and knee replacement February. Both operations very successful. My knee was extremely bad with arthritis and my leg deformed. Mr shah was thorough- considerate - listened and performed a minor miracle which has changed my life. I can’t thank him enough

Mr Amit Shah

Mr Shah has in jan given me new hip and in September a new knee. Both have healed very well. My leg was deformed due to arthritic knee. I was bent almost double when walking. I was in considerable pain. I now can walk virtually upright with no real pain after only 6 weeks. Mr shah has always been polite- thorough and listened! I think he’s performed a minor miracle on me. Can’t thank him enough.

Mr Amit Shah

you are welcome, glad its all working out!

I am 72 years of age and I recently underwent a full left knee replacement at the spire hospital. the surgeon was the very respectable Mr Shah who headed a proficient and caring team. the operation had to be put back due to a recommendation by the premed, where it was thought I would see a cardiologist. I have played sport all my life including soccer, cricket and rugby. as a result, my knee was a real mess.it was something like 20 per cent out of line with fragments of bone floating about. the operation was not going to be straightforward but I did feel confident in Mr Shah and his team. After three days I was on my way home. as I left the hospital I had met Mr Shah who had informed me that he had just been looking at my before and after xrays.he was very pleased with what he saw, my leg was straight. He was happy with his work which made any worries i had fade away very quickly. my operation was through the NHS and I feel I must comment on my stay at the Spire. everybody who I had contact with in the hospital were without a doubt truly professional and caring. all staff on duty throughout my stay at the spire went about their business with a smile which is very important. Thank you so much, Mr Shah.

Mr Amit Shah

the team that work with me deserve far more credit than me. i am fortunate enough to be working with some great people across the hospitals i work and they all go the extra length to deliver for our patients!
