Dr. Arij Faksh is a maternal-fetal medicine specialist at the San Diego Perinatal Center, the Maternal-Fetal Division of Rady Children's Specialists of San Diego.

Dr. Faksh earned her medical degree at the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine, completed her obstetrics-gynecology residency at Maine Medical Center and completed her maternal-fetal medicine fellowship at the Mayo Clinic.

Her clinical research interests include obstetric ultrasound techniques, simulation education and maternal complications surrounding pregnancy. She has a special research interest in neonatal lung disease, specifically how antenatal inflammatory insults both via systemic maternal infection/inflammation and through direct in utero exposure to inflammatory mediators can contribute to subsequent neonatal and pediatric lung diseases.

Dr. Faksh is a member of the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine, the American Institute of Ultrasound Medicine, the International Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology and the American Medical Association, as well as a fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology. She has earned numerous awards, including the Excellence in Ambulatory Obstetrics and Gynecology Award and the Senator George J. Mitchell Alumni Scholarship.

Originally from the coast of Maine, she is excited to be living and working in beautiful San Diego. Outside of work, she enjoys being outdoors, reading, ceramics and spending time with family and friends.

Dr. Faksh is looking forward to providing consultation, co-management and direct care for high-risk obstetrical patients in the Southern California community.
