Liberato V. Mukul, MD - Physician and Surgeon in Portland, OR

Provider Bio

Liberato Mukul, MD, is a board-certified OB/GYN physician and surgeon at Northwest Gynecology Center in Portland, Oregon.

From the Provider

“Compassion, education and excellence are the pillars I strive for in caring for each person. Each patient has a different set of circumstances and helping them navigate the complexities of their symptoms is what I enjoy the most. For me, listening to each patient’s story is the most important part of being able to facilitate a treatment plan that fits her needs.”

About the Provider

Dr. Mukul's clinical focus includes menstrual irregularities, fibroid treatment options, endometriosis, ovarian cysts, pelvic pain, polycystic ovary syndrome and minimally invasive surgery. He has additional training in using ultrasound to help diagnose gynecologic conditions. He was the first fellowship-trained minimally invasive gynecologic surgeon in the Portland area when he helped to establish WHA’s first Northwest Gynecology Center office in 2008. Although he is a surgical expert in gynecology and is often consulted by colleagues for his expertise in minimally invasive techniques—including robotics—he believes in maximizing medical options before recommending surgery. Dr. Mukul continues to work in the areas of surgical education and quality improvement, serving as a clinical faculty member at Oregon Health & Sciences University, where enjoys teaching students and residents. He is also the medical director of WHA’s office surgery program and Director of Gynecology. 

In his spare time, Dr. Mukul enjoys spending time with his family, hiking, soccer, camping, going to Timbers games and travel.

    After years of frustrating experiences with other providers not well versed in treating my disease, Mr Mukul was exceptionally knowledgeable. His bedside manner was compassionate and reassuring. The fact he based his referral on my insurance was refreshing, and much appreciated. I left feeling well cared for and more hopeful than I have in years.

    I made a call on Friday, May 10, to try to get assistance with a frustrating situation with the doctor that Dr. Mukul referred me to. I spoke with Carly, and she did everything she could to try to help me, including calling the other doctor's office to try to get information about what was happening. I just want to commend her for her kindness and professionalism.

    Dr. Mukul saw me late in the day in an urgent situation. As always he listened carefully to my problem, had read the material from another provider and discussed it thoroughly. He then supported the need for a biopsy and recommended a qualified breast surgeon to see. I was very appreciative of his taking such a late day appt., and being so helpful.
