Get to know Obstetrician-Gynecologist Dr. Devanshi Somaiya, who serves patients in Houston, Texas.
Identified as one of the most highly ranked doctors in the United States, Dr. Somaiya’s clinical interests include laparoscopy, hormonal disorders, and cervical cancer screening. With a focus on obstetrics and gynecology, she sees patients at Kelsey-Seybold Clinic in Houston, Texas, which she joined in August of 2003.
“From a patient’s perspective, I believe knowledge is power. Patient education about the prevention of disease is key. I believe that once a patient understands her body, and the pros and cons of different treatment options, she is empowered to make good choices. We can then form a strong partnership and optimize her health” as stated by the doctor.
Kelsey-Seybold Clinic provides convenient access to skilled and compassionate care through 24 multispecialty care centers and a specialized sleep center. Their goal is to deliver high-quality and comprehensive medical care with a dose of old-fashioned caring and personal attention.
Back in 1999, Dr. Somaiya earned her medical degree from Baylor College of Medicine. She then went on to complete her residency in obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. This year in 2020, she will complete her Master of Public Health (MPH) degree with a concentration in International Health, Women’s Health, and Tropical Diseases from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
A Fellow of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (FACOG), she is board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology, a non-profit organization that provides board certification for practicing obstetricians and gynecologists in the United States and Canada.
In order to stay up to date in her field, Dr. Somaiya remains a member of several professional organizations, including the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, the Harris County Medical Society, the Texas Medical Association, and Physicians for Human Rights.
In honor of her clinical expertise, she has received the Center of Excellence for Minimally Invasive Gynecology (COEMIG) designation from the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists (AAGL). The COEMIG program recognizes surgeons and facilities that demonstrate an unparalleled commitment and ability to consistently deliver safe, effective, evidence-based gynecology care, as well as proficiency and excellence in performing advanced minimally invasive gynecologic procedures, including laparoscopic and robotic surgery with the DaVinci® system.

Obstetrics and Gynecology is the medical specialty that encompasses the two subspecialties of obstetrics (covering pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period) and gynecology (covering the health of the female reproductive system – vagina, uterus, ovaries, and breasts). An obstetrician-gynecologist, or OB-GYN, is a healthcare professional who specializes in female reproductive health.
Enjoying giving back to the community, Dr. Somaiya volunteers her medical services in local clinics, as well as in Guatemala on a regular basis. Attributing her success to hard work and a passion for the betterment of women, her interests include global and international women’s health and she is involved in international projects. She enjoys spending time in low resource areas where she gets to work with women and their health and social circumstances and learning about different cultures and outlooks on life.
When she is not caring for patients, she enjoys spending time with her family, exercising, road biking, painting, traveling, and gourmet cooking. She also enjoys serving as a mentor to high school and medical school students.
