Dr. Shah is the Surgical Director of the Liver Transplant Program. He is from the Cincinnati area and attended college at the University of Cincinnati. While in Cincinnati, he worked closely with individuals who were involved in transplant and immunosuppression outcomes research. At this time he developed his keen interest in transplantation. He subsequently attended medical school in Toledo, Ohio at the Medical College of Ohio, and then completed his general surgery residency at the Medical College of Georgia. He completed his transplant surgery fellowship at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. When he finished his training, he eagerly jumped at the opportunity to come to the University of Kentucky and returning to the area he considers home.

His interests include kidney, pancreas and liver transplantation. He also has significant interests in hepato-billiary surgery, liver tumors, vascular access for patients with renal failure and general surgery in the transplant population.
