Shivani Patel, M.D.

As a maternal-fetal medicine specialist, Shivani Patel, M.D., takes care of women with high-risk pregnancies, including multiple births, mothers with pre-existing health conditions, babies with health issues that are detected in utero, and complications that arise during pregnancy itself.

Treating both mother and baby means Dr. Patel always has at least two patients to consider.

Dr. Patel helps families understand what is going on and what their options may be allowing them to feel more confident about the pregnancy and birthing process. When there are complex choices to be made, Dr. Patel and the maternal-fetal medicine team at UT Southwestern Medical Center help families navigate those decisions, as well.
