Dr. Allison Nauta is an OHSU-trained plastic and reconstructive surgeon with interests in complex reconstructive surgery, microsurgery, and lymphedema. Dr. Nauta received her bachelor’s degree from the University of Virginia with a double major in politics and biology. Born in Boston, but raised in Washington, D.C., she received her medical degree from Georgetown University School of Medicine. Midway through her residency training, she spent three years as a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University in Dr. Michael Longaker’s lab where she published several manuscripts on the role of adult tissue-derived stromal cells in wound healing. She then completed a residency in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at OHSU, followed by a one-year microsurgical fellowship at KU Medical Center in Kansas City. Microsurgical fellowship provided her the opportunity to perform complex autologous reconstruction of the breast, head and neck, lower extremity, and hand, as well as additional training in “supermicrosurgery” and operative approaches to lymphedema. With extensive exposure to aesthetics, the biology of wound healing, and reconstructive plastic surgery, Dr. Nauta returned to OHSU in 2018 to work in multidisciplinary patient care with an emphasis on problematic/complex wound closure and the surgical approach to lymphedema.
