 Research Expertise & Professional Interests
Dr. Radhika Chigurupati is Associate Professor in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. She joined Boston University, Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine in March 2013 after spending 9 years at University of California San Francisco (UCSF) and one and half years at University of Maryland, Baltimore. During that time, she practiced at UCSF Moffitt Medical Center, UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital and University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center.

Dr. Chigurupati specializes in surgical reconstruction of developmental and acquired jaw and facial deformities. Her primary focus in clinical practice is pediatric maxillofacial surgery. Her clinical expertise is surgical management of craniofacial growth disturbances, tooth eruption disturbances and jaw tumors in children. She also provides consultation for adults with sleep disorders/ obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), maxillofacial injuries, and pathology of the jaws and mouth. She works with her colleagues in other medical and dental specialties to provide interdisciplinary care for these patients. She and her surgery associates consult and provide surgical care for patients at Boston Medical Center and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

Dr. Chigurupati completed her Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery training at University of Washington (UW), Seattle and subsequently a fellowship in Pediatric Maxillofacial Surgery at the Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) in Melbourne, Australia. She has been an active member of the cleft and craniofacial teams at UW, UCSF and RCH. She is board certified in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.

Dr. Chigurupati also holds a master’s degree in Global Health Science from UCSF (2009). She has contributed to teaching and surgical activities in academic institutions in several developing countries (Peru, Guatemala, India). Her research interests include clinical informatics and telemedicine. Her current research focuses on identifying solutions for early diagnosis of oral cancer in resource-restricted settings.
