More About Dr. Shah

During his residency training, Dr. Shah first began using ultrasound in the care of his patients. As a result, Dr. Shah has more than 20 years of experience with ultrasound-guided venous access, the very foundation used today in the procedures offered in vein clinics. Dr. Shah is a managing partner in the emergency department at Holy Cross Hospitals in Silver Spring and Germantown, Maryland. He is an assistant clinical professor at Georgetown University School of Medicine and is also a teaching physician for residents rotating through Holy Cross Hospital.

“I’ve been performing procedures with ultrasound guidance for over 15 years in the hospital. When I first learned of the new and advanced treatments for treating patients with venous insufficiency in the outpatient setting I was intrigued,” he says. “After being introduced to the expert vein specialists at CVR I was able to see first hand the significant improvement in patients’ lives as their venous insufficiency was treated — instead of the archaic vein stripping which was quite ineffective with high morbidity. Performing minimally invasive vein treatment provided excellent results with no down-time.” - Dr. Anuj Shah
“Traditionally venous disease was underappreciated and quite frankly–not many options existed for its detailed evaluation and treatment. With ultrasound and catheter-based treatment, we are now able to treat diseased veins precisely and quite efficiently,” says Dr. Shah, who joined CVR in 2012. “It is a fulfilling experience to see the improvement in patient’s edema, pain, skin changes, and venous ulcers. The best part of the day is seeing patients in follow-up, and hearing how wonderful they are feeling.” - Dr. Anuj Shah

Dr. Shah describes his personal work in the field of venous insufficiency and areas where he has a particular focus:

“My specialty within the field of venous insufficiency is the ability to apply my many years of ultrasound procedural skills to treat patients with minimal invasiveness without general anesthesia in an outpatient setting.” Dr. Anuj Shah
