About the program
The Plastic Surgery residency program is an ACGME-accredited six-year Plastic Surgery integrated program. During the first three years the residents spend time both in Plastic Surgery and General Surgery. Our residents are trained in a full range of plastic surgical procedures, including:
- Hand Surgery (including peripheral nerve and replantation)
- Pediatric Craniofacial Surgery
- Lymphatic Surgery
- Aesthetic Surgery
- General Plastic Surgery
Our residents graduate with a breadth of career options and specialized expertise that allows them to be successful in the field.
Juliana Hansen, M.D., has served as the Division Head of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at OHSU since 2000 and the Program Director of the Plastic Surgery Residency Program since its beginnings. 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.
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.
