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.

    Besides waiting in the recovery room for three hours while they tried to locate a room for me and the crazy lady on the floor screaming all night it was an excellent experience with Dr Hanson and her team .

  • Dec 22, 2019

    Hi, I had a really great experience with Dr. Hansen. She answered my questions and got me set up to get with another doctor to get more information. I thought was in really good hands, and I have a follow up appointment with her to get even more information. So she was able to work me into his schedule on Friday.Thank you.

  • Dec 19, 2019

    She is amazing. Would recommend her to anyone.

  • Dec 19, 2019

    Yes, Dr. Hansen was fabulous. I loved her demeanor. She told me everything I needed to know she was very upbeat and positive and not just went a long way with me. So I really appreciated her and her team the way that she taught them and just was respectful 100% all the way through and I just really can't say enough good things about doctor, excuse me, Dr. Hansen and her whole team. So yay.

  • Dec 12, 2019

    A very confident doctor and very friendly and trust her(INAUDIBLE).

  • Dec 07, 2019

    I found Dr. Hansen could be very professional, very helpful and a great listener, and she understood my situation. Appreciated it. Also she got back to me, and I wouldn't think of using anyone else but Dr. Hansen. Thank you.

  • Nov 22, 2019

    Hansen is fabulous.

  • Nov 22, 2019

    Dr. Hansen is a wonderful communicator which is so important in healthcare. She answers all my questions in a thoughtful, non-judgemental way and always makes me feel very comfortable. Of course it’s important that she is an excellent surgeon as well, but when it comes to beast surgery which can be very vulnerable for pts, the communication aspect is what sets her apart.

  • Nov 21, 2019

    Dr Hanson is incredible and has helped me immensely for nearly 10 years-after two bouts with Breast Cancer.

  • Nov 20, 2019

    Always love the hustle of the place everyone is working to insure a positive experience . There is so much knowledge floating around and people are so attentive, I love your Hospital !

    What a great team Dr. Juliana Hansen has with her front desk staff (Nathan), Sierra in scheduling, and all the support staff that I met during my check-in procedure, prior to my surgery.Dr. Hansen always puts me at ease as soon as we meet. I feel so confident in her capable hands that I do not worry and I even look forward to having her operate on me. I enjoy meeting the doctors who are doing their internship- they are so eager, interested, professional and have a great attitude.

  • Oct 24, 2019

    she is awesome.... friendly, caring, and compassionate

  • Oct 17, 2019

    She's very patient and willing to spend time answering questions.

  • Oct 16, 2019

    She may be helping me with fixing my breast

  • Oct 14, 2019

    This was my third surgery with Dr. Hansen and I trust her completely. Dr. Hansen is a very professional provider who is gentle, compassionate and understands the heart of her patients. As a breast cancer survivor, who had a double mastectomy, it was her words of compassion ten years ago that convinced me that she was going to make me whole and beautiful again. Recently, I saw her for implant replacements and scar revision and it felt like the friend I hadn’t seen in years except she is the friend who pours out everything on my behalf but get nothing in return. Therefore, please accept this note as my sincere appreciation for my beautiful battle scars which you’ve worked so hard to improve. My husband and I can’t thank you enough for your skill, attention to detail, and your genuine heartfelt spirit. You are a gift from God!

  • Oct 14, 2019

    Juliana Hansen was very kind and listened to any questions I had, providing an outline vocally of how my surgery would go and answers to my questions in good detail. Juliana Hansen was also polite about personal comfort and personal space when it came to touching the patient's body. The "nurse" was kind in this regard, asking who I was comfortable with in having come into the room with me, no judgement when I wanted someone to be there with me.

  • Oct 06, 2019

    She was responsive, professional, and courteous.

  • Oct 04, 2019

    I think my doctor had something on her mind that day, she didn't read my history before I got there and I felt rushed. I was able to get an unplanned but needed CT scan taken care of the same day though which was nice.

  • Sep 27, 2019

    She is always excellent! A lovely person and extremely caring and competent doctor.

She answered all of my questions and was thorough with me. I feel comfortable with her and I'm glad I took my surgeon's recommendation to see Dr. Hansen and even found the wait time for the appointment completely worth it, because Dr. Hansen is great and I feel lucky to have her as my surgeon for such an important surgery.

    Dr. Hanson is excellent. She did reconstructive surgery 7 years ago after Breast Cancer and a mastectomy---I met with her again for her advice regarding the damage done to the reconstructed breast as the Cancer came back!

  • Aug 11, 2019

    Yes, I appreciated all the interest she showed in me and and she was very thorough on her explaining everything that needed to be done and just really happy to have her as my doctor, and I can't wait to get procedure done. So, thank you very much and take care. Bye.
