Dr. Ritesh Shah receives Innovation Trailblazer Award for adopting 3D surgical navigation tech for hip replacement


Ritesh Shah, MD, received the IJS Innovation Trailblazer Award of Excellence for adopting the intellijoint HIP navigation system for hip surgery into his practice at Chicago-based Illinois Bone & Joint Institute, and in an ASC setting at the Morton Grove, Ill.-based Illinois Sports Medicine & Orthopedic Surgery Center.

The intellijoint HIP is a 3D mini-optical navigation system that addresses the common risks of hip surgery, such as dislocation and joint instability, by providing accurate intraoperative measurements for cup position, leg length and offset to assist the surgeon in placing implants.

"Many of my patients come to me in pain looking to regain their former mobility but are worried about the short- and long-term risks associated with total hip replacements," Dr. Shah said. "By utilizing the quantitative measurements that intellijoint HIP provides intraoperatively, I am able to ensure the implants have been positioned accurately, resulting in a significant decrease of associated risks. Patients are back to their active lifestyles in just days, confident in their surgical outcomes."

Dr. Shah received his medical degree from the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine. He completed his general surgery internship and orthopedic surgery residency at Evanston, Ill-based Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. He completed a fellowship in joint preservation, resurfacing and reconstruction at St.Louis-based Washington University School of Medicine Department of Orthopedic Surgery.
