Dr. Deep Shah is a podiatrist and foot and ankle surgeon. He sees patients in Chicago at Resurrection Medical Center on Talcott Avenue and at First Community Medical Center on Addison Street, both on the Northwest Side of the city.
He decided he wanted to be a foot and ankle physician after suffering a basketball injury when he was younger and was inspired by the doctors who helped him walk again. Dr. Shah added that this experience has made him a more empathetic and patient care provider to his patients.
Originally born and raised in Western India, Dr. Shah moved to the United States at the age of 16. He attended Siena College in New York and graduated with a degree in Biology and a minor in business administration. Dr. Shah then attended Temple University School in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where he graduated with a Doctorate degree in Podiatric Medicine and a master’s degree in business administration from the prestigious Richard J. Fox School of Business.
Dr. Shah remained on the East Coast to complete rigorous surgical training at Crozer Health in the greater Philadelphia region, where he received comprehensive training in all aspects of the foot and ankle, ranging from trauma, deformity correction/reconstruction, limb salvage, arthroscopy, sports medicine, and minimally invasive techniques. During his second year of residency, he had the privilege of receiving advanced training at the Mount Sinai Hospital- Rubin Institute for Advanced Orthopedics in Baltimore, Maryland alongside world-renowned faculty. There, his training was in atypical pediatric foot and ankle deformities. In his final year of residency, Dr. Shah led multiple workshops, lectures, and surgical skills labs.
He is excited to join podiatrists and help patients get back on their feet. He said that his work at Northern allows him to get to know his patients, collaborate with many other talented doctors and attain more specialized training. When Dr. Shah is not treating patients, he enjoys cooking, reading, and outdoor activities.
