Richard N. Hamilton, MD

Provider Bio

Richard Hamilton, MD, is a board-certified OB/GYN physician and surgeon specializing in urogynecology/female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery at Women's Healthcare Associates in Portland, Oregon. 

About the Provider

Dr. Hamilton focuses on urogynecology, or 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. He also puts his surgical skills to use in performing advanced gynecologic procedures.

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
