Dr. Dhivya Srinivasa completed training in general surgery at University of Texas and plastic surgery at the University of Michigan. She is currently pursuing specialized training in microsurgical reconstruction as a clinical fellow at UCSF. Her background in general surgery affords her an appreciation for the complexities of oncologic surgery. She readily employs this knowledge to work with other specialties to offer the most appropriate and necessary reconstructive options to patients. She will spend this year at UCSF fine tuning her skill set in complex reconstruction of cancer defects and traumatic injuries while growing her knowledge on the most cutting edge advances in breast reconstruction. Her specific clinical interests include breast reconstruction, lower extremity salvage, and transgender surgery.

Dr. Srinivasa grew her involvement in high quality breast surgery outcomes research while at the University of Michigan. Her involvement in the Mastectomy Reconstruction Outcomes Consortium, as well as numerous book chapters on breast and other complex reconstruction, has created a strong base to grow from while at UCSF. Her specific interests include post mastectomy and post reconstruction breast pain, the role of the internet and social media in breast cancer awareness and patient access to accurate information, as well as quality of life outcomes after breast reconstruction.
