Sujata Saha, MD, is a clinical assistant professor in the Division of Surgical Oncology specializing in endocrine surgery. She also serves as the Assistant Clerkship Director for General Surgery.

Dr. Saha returned to Southern Arizona after completing her endocrine surgery fellowship at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. She previously completed her general surgery residency here at the University of Arizona – Tucson, where she was awarded the Charles Zukowski Humanitarian Award and selected to serve as administrative chief resident of the general surgery residency.

Dr. Saha graduated from the Honors Program in Medical Education at Northwestern University, a combined baccalaureate/MD program at the Feinberg School of Medicine. There she won the Howell and Nolan scholarships and was a Oliphant student scholar. As a resident, Dr. Saha was also the president of the Resident Quality Improvement Council and oversaw resident-led projects across all departments that focused on enhancing various workflows in the hospital.

“Dr. Saha's world-class training and expertise in endocrine surgery will ensure that we continue to provide exceptional care to patients in Southern Arizona suffering from diseases of the thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal glands,” Dr. Marlon Guerrero said.

Dr. Saha has 17 publications, and her recent research involves PET choline imaging for parathyroid pathology. Her work has been recognized at the Young Investigators Research Symposium, and she recently presented at the American Association for Endocrine Surgeons (AAES) Annual Meeting.

“We are thrilled to have Dr. Saha, one of our outstanding former chief residents, back to Tucson. She brings to our department more advanced and novel techniques and treatment options for patients with endocrine diseases. Dr. Saha is also very passionate about residents and medical student education and will contribute significantly to training the next generation of students and surgeons,” Dr. Valentine Nfonsam said.

Dr. Saha is board certified in general surgery, and her professional interests lie in treating thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal and paraganglioma pathology. In her free time, she enjoys painting, cooking and exploring new places to eat in Tucson.
