Dr. Shah Personal
Dr. Ravi B. Shah, DO is a board certified general surgeon who is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. He performs a variety of operations, specializing in minimally invasive surgery, which utilizes small incisions and high definition cameras to perform complex abdominal operations. This allows quicker recovery with less post-operative pain, along with smaller scars.
Dr. Shah is married and has two young boys. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his family, travelling, and playing sports such as racquetball, golf, and basketball. Although born in New Jersey, Dr. Shah was raised in central California before attending college at UC San Diego. He obtained his Bachelor’s degree in Biology, followed by a Master’s degree the following year for his research at the prestigious Salk Institute. Since then, he has lived in LA, Orange, and San Bernardino counties during his training and is proud to call Southern California his home. He follows the Lakers and the Angels, and was lucky enough to attend the World Series in 2002 in Anaheim as a member of the medical team.
In May 2016, Dr. Shah went on a medical mission trip to El Fuerte, Mexico. Each day, from the early morning till late at night, Dr. Shah and his team performed numerous operations on those less fortunate, providing surgical care to patients with ailments who otherwise would have never received any care. He worked alongside his father, an anesthesiologist, which provided a neat experience as the first time the father and son have worked together.
Dr. Shah currently practices at Placentia-Linda Hospital. He has recently expanded his practice to Foothill Regional Medical Center in Tustin, CA, St. Jude Hospital in Fullerton, and Chapman Global Medical Center in Orange. His past employment was with a multi-specialty surgical group in Riverside and Corona, CA., where he was affiliated with Corona Regional Medical Center, Riverside Community Hospital, and Parkview Community Hospital.
