MAYWOOD, IL – Ricki Shah, MD, a radiologist who specializes in disorders of the musculoskeletal system, has joined Loyola Medicine.
The musculoskeletal system includes bones, muscles, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, joints and other connective tissue. Dr. Shah treats conditions including trauma, sports medicine injury, rheumatoid arthritis, spondylitis and tumors in bones and joints.
“Imaging technology is getting better and better, which is resulting in earlier and more accurate diagnoses and improved patient outcomes,” Dr. Shah said. For example, tumors, labral tears and cartilage losses are being detected earlier when they are smaller and easier to treat, Dr. Shah said.
Dr. Shah is an assistant professor in the department of radiology of Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine. He is board certified in radiology.
Dr. Shah earned his medical degree at the University of Missouri, Kansas City. He completed a residency in radiology at Loyola University Medical Center and a fellowship in musculoskeletal radiology at the University of Iowa.
