Provider Bio

About the Provider

Dr. Hamilton cares for women during pregnancy and throughout their lives. He specializes in helping address complex gynecological issues, such as severe endometriosis, pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence. He is dedicated to communicating the latest medical science and treatment options in understandable terms and to helping women achieve their goals for leading full and healthy lives—even when that means trying multiple approaches to find what works best for them.

Dr. Hamilton is part of WHA’s urogynecology team that specializes in treating the symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction. His particular interest is in expanding the use of available technology, including traditional and robotic laparoscopy, to accomplish more intensive surgical therapy through less invasive procedures—reducing both recovery time and the risk of surgical complications. In this area of his practice, Dr. Hamilton sees women experiencing leakage of urine with activity (such as coughing, sneezing, running or jumping); the urge to urinate frequently; and the prolapse—or dropping—of pelvic organs such as the uterus or bladder, which can cause the sensation of pelvic pressure or bulging at the opening of the vagina. 

Another aspect of Dr. Hamilton’s practice is the minimally invasive treatment of varicose veins. Using a non-surgical office procedure, he helps women who have painful, bulging veins find relief, restore confidence and prevent further progression of the underlying disease.

When he's not working, Dr. Hamilton enjoys ocean wave sailing, Alpine skiing and fly fishing. He and his wife, whom he met while they were both undergraduates in New York, have two daughters

    True to form, Dr. Hamilton always takes plenty of time with me and is really reassuring and thorough. Years ago when Dr. Neilson moved on, his nurse suggested Dr. Hamilton and I've felt the same assurance ever since that my best interests are in kept in mind with care and compassion.
