Dr. Shinil Shah earned his medical degree at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey in Stratford, NJ. He completed a residency in general surgery at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) Medical School, followed by a fellowship in surgical research at the UT Health/Texas A&M University Michael E. DeBakey Institute for Comparative Cardiovascular Science and Biomedical Devices. He completed a second fellowship in advanced gastrointestinal/minimally invasive and robotic surgery at the McGovern Medical School at UTHealth.

Board certified in general surgery, Dr. Shah is one of only a few surgeons who have undergone formal fellowship training in robotic surgery. His primary clinical interests are benign and malignant conditions of the gastrointestinal tract. His areas of specialty care include surgery of the esophagus and stomach (including surgery for reflux/heartburn, weight loss, achalasia, hiatal hernias, ulcer disease, gastrointestinal stromal tumors, and gastric cancer), surgery of solid organs (spleen, adrenal glands, thyroid, parathyroid, pancreas and liver), surgery of the abdominal wall and hernia surgery, including complex abdominal wall reconstruction, colon surgery and colon cancer. Whenever possible, he uses advanced minimally invasive techniques including robotic, laparoscopic and endoscopic (incision-less) approaches.

Dr. Shah is an associate professor of surgery at the McGovern Medical School, where he is medical director of research for the Division of Minimally Invasive and Elective General Surgery. He also serves on the faculty of the Michael E. DeBakey Institute for Comparative Cardiovascular Science and Biomedical Devices and has authored or co-authored more than 90 peer-reviewed manuscripts and book chapters.
