Surprisingly enough, MacArthur OB/GYN’s Dr. Swati Joshipura was driven to practice women’s care, in part, because of her participation as a board member on a nonprofit organization. That group organized medical camps in the rural areas of northern India, a vastly underserved medical area of the world that’s now less so because of her work as part of the organization.
Her work with the organization didn’t entirely set her path in motion, though. Dr. Joshipura actually started her career in healthcare by first pursuing a doctorate in physical therapy. She soon realized that she wanted a more comprehensive understanding of health and illness so changed courses and dove into her study of women’s health.
She completed her undergraduate studies in integrative biology and South Asian studies from the University of California at Berkeley before moving to medical school at the University of North Texas Health Sciences Center in Fort Worth. She completed her obstetrics and gynecology residency training at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas.
While she is trained in all aspects of obstetric and gynecologic health, Dr. Joshipura has a special interest in high-risk pregnancies, minimally invasive robotic surgery, and preventive and contraceptive management of adolescents and adults. She’s also driven by the opportunity to positively impact a woman’s life from menarche to menopause and beyond. This reason alone is the primary reason why she practices medicine today.
Dr. Joshipura is passionate about motherhood, and about working with women of all ages to help them during the course of their lives and their care paths.
Born and raised in the Bay Area of California, she lived in suburban San Francisco until 2012 when she began to make Dallas her new home. She loves being a part of the growing Las Colinas cultural community, which she loves because of its accessibility and cosmopolitan manner.
When she’s not practicing, she may be teaching a classical Indian dance form known as Bharatanatyam. She also loves traveling with her family, and she’s always on the lookout for another good book. She’s hip, too, to continuing taking part in Las Colinas’ growing active social scene and investigating the city’s awesome culinary adventures.
