About Rushi Shah
I am an assistant professor of surgery in the University of Florida Division of Transplantation and Hepatobiliary Surgery. My clinical interests, include multiorgan transplantation for adults and pediatrics, including liver, kidney and pancreas transplantation, kidney and pancreas transplantation, intestine and multi-visceral transplantation, acute liver failure, liver cirrhosis, Laennec cirrhosis and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, or NASH.
I received my medical degree at Saint George’s University School of Medicine and completed my general surgery residency at Lincoln Medical Center in the Weill Cornell Medical College Department of Surgery. After, I completed two fellowships in abdominal transplant surgery and advanced abdominal minimally invasive transplant surgery at the Miami Transplant Institute – an affiliation between Jackson Health System and University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. There, I was awarded Outstanding Fellow of the Year.
I aim to provide the best possible care and outcomes for my patients. One way I plan to accomplish this for those on the transplant list is to maximize the organ donor pool using leading-edge machine perfusion and to establish a transplant research lab that uses 3D printed organs and xenotransplantation to help overcome organ shortage.
In my free time, I maintain an active lifestyle, including biking, mountaineering, kayaking and white water rafting.
