Teresa Sparks, MD

Obstetrician

Dr. Teresa Sparks is an obstetrician who specializes in maternal-fetal medicine, managing the health concerns of both mother and fetus through all stages of pregnancy. She cares for women with high-risk pregnancies and those who are considering a high-risk pregnancy. She also specializes in clinical genetics, addressing genetic conditions that affect a woman or baby during pregnancy.

Sparks' research investigates the causes of nonimmune hydrops fetalis, a complication of pregnancy that occurs when excessive fluid accumulates in the fetus. Her work focuses on identifying the condition's genetic causes with the goal of developing more targeted approaches to care both before and after birth.

Sparks earned her medical degree at UCSF. She completed a residency at the Brigham and Women's Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital combined obstetrics and gynecology residency program. She then completed a combined fellowship in maternal-fetal medicine and clinical genetics at UCSF.

Sparks is a member of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine, American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics and American Medical Association. She is an assistant professor of obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive sciences at UCSF.
