Dr. Shah is a world expert in scoliosis and an excellent surgeon for spine deformity correction. He and his staff are courteous and spend the time needed to explain complicated procedures. They are the best!
Doctor Shah had been my doctor since I was 13 years old. I am now 20 years old about to turn 21. I was in my sophomore year of college at Penn State University with so many goals and dreams ahead of me. When I went in for my check up, he responded that he thought it was best I get surgery that upcoming summer. I was never in pain or ever bothered by my scoliosis. I hardly remembered I even had it so you can assume how frustrating it was hearing this. He said for "quality of life" I should have it done. It would only take that summer to recover. Shah was confident on that one. I asked doctor Shah for two things if I went through with this. First, I would have to be able to attend school in the fall and second, I needed to be 100% by the time I went abroad in January. If there was a chance of this not happening I wasn't going through with the surgery. He confidently assured me I would be completely fine and the recovery would take only that summer. It is now almost a year post op. my surgery and I have been in chronic pain ever since. I missed my fall semester of my junior year at PSU. I was unable to study abroad with all my friends. I sit at home waiting for my next doctors appointment in agony from the muscle spasms that are constant. This surgery has completely stopped my life and when I told dr Shah about all of this, he stated "his" part was done correctly.... But what about me? What about my life? He didn't care. He sent us off to the next person to deal with it. I put my life in his hands and trusted him to help me. That is not what he did. Yes he fixed my scoliosis, but what about all the other problems these rods now created? My parents and I struggle everyday to find a supportive, attentive and caring doctor that will help me figure out how to end this nightmare I've been living for a year. This is the kind of doctor you want. Not one that corrects "his" part and sends you off to never follow up with you or care to help you through this unbearable, painful and emotional process I am facing. I am struggling and I wish I had the doctor that created this problem to help me but he is not the type to continue working with you after, as I said earlier, "his" part is done.
