Shagun Arora


Dedicated to education and compassionate patient care

Dr. Shagun Arora is a hematologist-oncologist who specializes in caring for patients with malignant and classical (cancerous and noncancerous) blood disorders. She treats patients with diverse hematologic conditions in both categories. Her focus is monoclonal gammopathies, or conditions in which the blood contains abnormal proteins, including MGUS (monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance) and multiple myeloma, along with anemias. Arora's goal is to provide compassionate, supportive care that takes the whole person into consideration, while helping patients fight cancer. She considers it a privilege to be part of the lives of cancer patients and their families.

In addition to patient care, she is passionate about medical education, working closely with training physicians who are pursuing fellowships in hematology and oncology. Arora is the medical director of the Infusion Center at UCSF's Parnassus campus.

Arora completed her residency at Michigan State University, followed by a fellowship at MedStar Washington Hospital Center and MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, where she served as chief fellow. She is a member of several professional associations, including the American Society of Hematology, American Society of Clinical Oncology, Society of Hematologic Oncology and International Myeloma Society.

In her free time, Arora enjoys international travel, yoga retreats and hiking to view the gorgeous vistas of San Francisco.
