Houston Methodist Orthopedics & Sports Medicine recently announced that Dr. Nish Shah is now seeing patients in Long Meadow Farms.
Shah is a primary care sports medicine physician with a dual focus on family medicine and the treatment of common sports injuries in both young athletes and active adults. He is located at a new Houston Methodist Primary Care Group office in the Long Meadow Farms community, at 7790 W. Grand Parkway S., Suite 100, in Richmond.
Shah is a graduate of Baylor University in Waco. After earning his Doctor of Medicine degree at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, he completed a family medicine residency program at Houston Methodist Hospital, as well as a primary care sports medicine fellowship program at Baylor Scott & White Hospital.
Throughout that fellowship, he provided on-field medical coverage for Baylor University’s football team, men and women’s basketball teams and women’s soccer team, as well as the McLennan Community College men’s and women’s basketball teams. He also served as a visiting scholar for Baylor University’s exercise physiology department, providing medical coverage to participants obtaining an exercise prescription program.
Shah’s unique blend of primary care and sports medicine is ideal for preteen and teenage athletes who have outgrown a traditional pediatrician, as well as active adults who experience sports-related injuries. He can handle everyday illnesses and provide specialized care for sports injuries, concussion management and orthopedic conditions. Shah sees patients starting at the age of 2 years old and up. He has a particular interest in ultrasound guided musculoskeletal injections, primarily for arthritic patients who need medicine localized specific to their joints or platelet rich injections for chronic tendinopathies.
“I am pleased to bring Houston Methodist quality care to the people of Richmond,” said Shah. “I have a passion for both sports and family medicine because there is a connection between the two specialties that is often overlooked – an individual’s overall health is important to daily routines and the ability to be active and fit. I’m excited to begin seeing patients at the new Long Meadow Farms office.”
