Romil Shah MD
Orthopaedic Surgeon - General Specialty
Primary Hospital: University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center


I knew I wanted to be a doctor from the first time I was injured as a gymnast. Coming from a techy family, however, I knew that I was always going to be interested in how healthcare could be helped by technology. Though I think some of my dad’s ideas on replacing doctors with a robot may be too farfetched, I have spent my career trying to define how different aspects of modern technology can make very real, palpable differences in patient’s lives. At Northwestern, I created and studied a series of iPhone applications that help patients use their inhalers, a problem that 86% of asthmatics struggle with. In medical school, I created applications that help patients recieve free physical therapy after surgery which can save them time and improve their outcomes. I am currently a resident in orthopedic surgery at the University of Texas, Austin and am training to be a spine surgeon. My current projects surround using machine learning to predict patient outcomes from consumer technology like FitBits and make medical diagnoses from imaging technology.
