Rita Mukhtar, MD

Assoc Prof of Clinical Surgery
Surgery

Dr. Rita Mukhtar specializes in breast surgery and general surgery for urgent conditions. For her patients with breast cancer, she offers expertise in total skin-sparing mastectomies, breast conservation, wire localization surgery (used to show the location of tissue requiring biopsy) and sentinel lymph node biopsy (used to see if cancer has spread).

Dr. Mukhtar's research program focuses on invasive lobular carcinoma, the second most common type of breast cancer. This work is funded by the American Cancer Society and the National Cancer Institute. She teaches medical students and residents, and serves as an Associate Program Director for the UCSF General Surgery Residency.
