IOF: How has IOF impacted you the most?
Dr. Shah: As a member of IOF since 2015, I have received world-class education, training, support and guidance from IOF’s members that have allowed me to deliver cutting edge treatments and change the lives of my patients.
IOF: What do you treat most frequently with regenerative medicine?
Dr. Shah: Knees, shoulders and spine
IOF: Where do you see the field of regenerative medicine going in the next five years?
Dr. Shah: Regenerative medicine is going to be the new standard of care for treatment of injury and disease. The capacity of our body to use natural repair mechanisms and heal our own injured tissue is the future to circumvent surgical complications. It is promising, and very safe alternative to traditional arthroscopic and joint replacement surgery
