Alexandra C. Bolognese, M.D., Ph.D.

  • Assistant Professor of Surgery, Division of Abdominal Organ Transplantation, School of Medicine


Dr. Alexandra Bolognese joined the OHSU team in 2022. She specializes in liver, kidney, and pancreas transplantation. She was inspired to pursue a career in transplant surgery after witnessing the dramatic way in which organ donation impacts the lives of transplant recipients, donors, and their families. She is interested in raising public awareness for organ donation, maximizing organ utilization, expanding access to transplant services, and mentoring medical students and residents.

Outside of the hospital, Dr. Bolognese enjoys yoga, ballet, and exploring the Pacific Northwest with her husband, James.
