Juliana Hansen, MD, has served as the Division Chief of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at OHSU since 2000. Her training in San Francisco with some of the pioneers of aesthetic surgery, microsurgery and reconstructive techniques led to a particular interest in microsurgical techniques for breast reconstruction. By maintaining an active cosmetic surgery practice as well as a reconstructive practice, Dr. Hansen feels that she can give her breast cancer patients the best possible results.  Many breast cancer patients desire or benefit from procedures on the opposite breast that can enhance their overall results.Dr. Hansen is an avid runner and, along with her husband Paul Hansen, M.D., participates regularly in the Hood to Coast relay and occasionally in the Portland Marathon. They also spend as much time as possible skiing with their two sons.

    Despite an hour-long wait to see her (which she was very apologetic about), I had a great experience with Dr. Juliana Hansen. She was very knowledgeable, experienced, and capable, and assuaged my and my parents' fears about the procedure. She was also very friendly and cared about my needs and wants.

    I was very amazed with Juliana Hansen. She's a very good surgeon and was right there doing the pre narkings on me and it wasn't somebody who was a nurse or MA, it was actually her. She actually showed up and did the..... all the prep work before the surgery. She did excellent surgery. I am very happy with her work. She's very reassuring and down to earth and company. She's a joy to be around. I recommend Juliana Hansen. she's the best at what she does. Thank you so much OHSU for having her. Thank you.
