Sabin Shah, M.D., is an orthopedic surgeon with specialized fellowship training in sports medicine. Dr. Shah treats athletes and general orthopedics patients and is dedicated to the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of injuries, disorders and diseases of the musculoskeletal system.

“My lifelong passion for sports led me to play three varsity sports in high school and collegiate basketball for four years,” he said. “I studied psychology in college and was pursuing coaching or sports psychology when I was first exposed to orthopedic surgery through an injury. As I recovered from surgery and returned to sport, I realized how I could combine my passions for surgery and sports medicine to help others do the same.”

Philosophy of Care

Dr. Shah’s philosophy of care centers around patient education and understanding. “I discuss and explore all non-surgical and surgical options before helping my patients make informed decisions so that they can best achieve their individual goals,” he said. “I strive to create relationships based on trust, open communication and teamwork.”

According to Dr. Shah, the most satisfying aspect of his work is watching an athlete return to their sport. “Additionally, getting people back to work and folks back to their activities and hobbies brings a similar level of satisfaction,” he added. “I truly believe that movement is life and getting people moving again is my purpose.”

Special Interests and Procedures

Dr. Shah’s areas of clinical interest include the non-surgical and surgical treatment of sports and athletic-related injuries, fracture care and degenerative arthritis.

He specifically holds a special interest in procedures related to:

  • Upper and Lower Extremity Ligament Repair and Reconstruction
  • Upper and Lower Extremity Tendon Repair and Reconstruction
  • Shoulder, Elbow, Knee Instability
  • Rotator Cuff Repair and Associated Procedures
  • Meniscus Repair and Associated Procedures
  • Cartilage Restoration
  • Anatomic and Reverse Total Shoulder Replacements
  • Operative and Non-Operative Fracture Care
  • Orthobiologic use, including Platelet Rich Plasma and Bone Marrow Aspirate

Dr. Shah’s interest in orthopedic surgery was sparked by his lifelong passion for basketball. He still plays at least once a week, which continues to motivate him at work. In his free time, he also stays very active playing other sports and participating in leagues. “I enjoy travelling domestically and internationally,” he said. “I also love trying new restaurants but cook often at home and enjoy experimenting with craft cocktails.”
