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.

Patient Comments

  • Apr 25, 2019

    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.

  • Apr 24, 2019

    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.

It turned out really well. She did a beautiful job with my surgery and really appreciate her time in her ever in her skill.

    Dr. Hansen listens, provides clear information, and is kind and supportive. I felt immediate trust for her.

  • Jan 05, 2019

    I don't know the results of my surgery yet. That's an important piece! She was friendly, nice and funny before surgery. I'd love to have the doctor more involved...more than consult and surgery. I'd like to see them at all of my follow-up appointments.

  • Jan 04, 2019

    Dr. Hansen is great. I've been seeing her for several years and she's always really concerned that. That I'm happy with her work. So please pass that information on to her. I think she's a 10 out of 10. Thank you.

  • Nov 19, 2018

    Not only was the staff incredibly helpful, friendly, very timely didn't have to wait at all really for anything. Everyone's very well informed, gave me multiple opportunities to ask any questions I might have. Really considerate, made me feel very welcome, very safe, like, really assured, really good, I guess, bed side manner, like, not just, you know, the normal, like, friendly professional but also really just fun and like welcome to be around everyone like clearly. I really knew what they were up to really took into account my own opinion and like my concerns and like things I wanted and operated off of that, which is great. Overall, like I really couldn't imagine a more welcoming more*.

    Dr. Hansen is efficient. When I'm her patient, I feel like I'm getting really really good care. I I think she's terrific doctor and is knowledgeable and and helpful and relieved a lot of stress of worrying, that type of thing. So I would give her a very high rating. Thank you.

  • Nov 16, 2018

    Very helpful with explanations about the plastics work I am interested in.

  • Nov 16, 2018

    Amazing bedside manner from the doctors & nurses. You are always treated like their main priority even though they are looking into after multiple patients at a time. They talk to you like a person not a patient. All in all amazing people.

  • Nov 02, 2018

    Positive, caring, efficient, very good.

    After my first visit with Dr. Juliana Hansen, I was able to tell that she's extremely passionate and caring and that she takes her time with her patients.

  • Oct 28, 2018

    I have a great experience. I really like the staff and Dr. Hansen. When I left there the girl that was going to give a quote on my surgeries was not there so I could have waited, but my meter was about ready to run out so they said she would call me in a day or two and never I never heard from her and I came 4 1/2 hours up there to find this out so of course I'm anxious to hear my quotes. I have not heard anything so I'm hoping I hear back really soon. Thank you.

  • Oct 26, 2018

    Knows my medical history before entering the room. Asks questions and listens to concerns. Addresses all concerns.

  • Oct 14, 2018

    Dr. Hansen was extremely receptive and kind while being completely concise.

  • Oct 12, 2018

    Forthe most part everyone was extremely helpful. Towards the end of my visit they didnt communicate that my appointment was done or that I could leave and i waited in the room for 20 minutes before I decided to leave.

  • Oct 12, 2018

    Dr. Hansen was very respectful and made me feel comfortable. Overall I felt safe and felt like I was well informed throughout the process. Excellent results as well!

  • Oct 06, 2018

    She is the most caring doctor I have. I always feel good after seeing her.

  • Oct 05, 2018

    Provider is a surgeon and pre-ops have gone well but I can?t make an informed recommendation until after surgery.
