Shahram “Sean” Daneshmand, MD, is an obstetrician and gynecologist (OB-GYN) who specializes in maternal and fetal medicine at Scripps Clinic. He is recognized as one of the San Diego region’s top specialists for high-risk pregnancies. Dr. Daneshmand treats a wide range of conditions and complications that can occur during pregnancy, including preterm labor, hypertension, preeclampsia, diabetes, abnormally invasive placentation and clotting disorders. 

Dr. Daneshmand is medical director of the maternal-fetal medicine program at Scripps Clinic, which coordinates care of mothers and babies with specialists who may be involved or needed as part of the labor and delivery team, including certified nurse midwives, cardiologists and diabetes experts. The program provides services to high-risk pregnant women throughout the Scripps Health system. 

For patients requiring specialized care during pregnancy, Dr. Daneshmand provides services and procedures that include management of multiple gestation pregnancies, fetal imaging, amniocentesis, external cephalon version and cesarean hysterectomy, as well as genetic counseling and testing.

Providing his patients with excellent, compassionate and respectful care during their pregnancy is paramount to Dr. Daneshmand. He believes during the pregnancy period, women can have a significant impact on the health of future generations, as evidenced by our evolving understanding of epigenetics and how the function of DNA changes depending on environmental factors.

Dr. Daneshmand has been recognized as one of CNN’s Heroes of the Week, and has been twice recognized by the San Diego Business Journal with a Health Care Heroes Award. He is a frequent speaker at national and international conferences and has published research in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology, and The Journal of Pediatrics. He is a fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, and a member of the International Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology, as well as the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine 

When not caring for his patients, spending time with his family is Dr. Daneshmand’s top priority. He also enjoys playing tennis and learning to play the guitar.
