Dr. Anthony Shanks has been practicing his specialty since 2010. He chose Maternal-Fetal Medicine because he feels the opportunity to care for women with complicated pregnancies is unlike any other. It presents unique challenges involving the care of two patients simultaneously as well as the opportunity for prenatal diagnosis and interventions to improve perinatal outcomes.  

Dr. Shanks earned his medical degree from the Indiana University School of Medicine. He went on to complete an Obstetrics and Gynecology residency and a Maternal-Fetal Medicine fellowship, both at Washington University in St. Louis.
