Biography

Dr. Utsavi Shah was born in Gujarat, India and moved to Houston with her family when she was a small child. She has lived in Houston ever since and, therefore, considers herself a native Texan. She knew from a young age that medicine was her calling and has dedicated her life to it ever since.

She attended Michael E. DeBakey High School for Health Professions, where she graduated as valedictorian and was awarded a prestigious B.S./M.D. scholarship through Baylor College of Medicine. She received her undergraduate degree in Biology from the University of Houston, graduating summa cum laude. Dr. Shah then attended Baylor College of Medicine in the Texas Medical Center for her medical degree and remained at Baylor for her residency training as a specialist in Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Dr. Shah has a special interest in high risk obstetrics and minimally invasive gynecologic surgery.
