The Oregon Clinic

The Oregon Clinic is pleased to welcome Amanda Verienna Hayman, MD, MPH, to the Gastrointestinal and Minimally Invasive Surgery (GMIS) specialty group. She is trained in treating all aspects of colorectal conditions, from cancer and inflammatory bowel disease to anorectal conditions and pelvic floor prolapse. Dr. Hayman recently completed a fellowship in colon and rectal surgery at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, and also holds a Master’s of Public Health in biostatistics from Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU).

“Patients come to us at very vulnerable points in their lives. They may have just learned they have cancer or have been suffering from chronic conditions like Crohn’s or ulcerative colitis for years. We also see many patients with life-altering anorectal conditions, fecal incontinence, or pelvic organ prolapse, which they may be reluctant to discuss with their providers. One of the aspects of colorectal surgery I most enjoy is the long-term relationship we build with many of our patients. I get a great amount of fulfillment from guiding my patients successfully through the disease process, gaining their trust, and improving their quality of life. I am very honored to have joined The Oregon Clinic’s specialty surgical group as the next step in my career. I hope to both learn from and contribute to my partners’ wealth of experience and expertise in gastrointestinal diseases,” shared Dr. Hayman.
Prior to the Mayo Clinic, Dr. Hayman was at Northwestern University in Chicago where she completed internship and residency in general surgery. From 2009-2011 at Northwestern University she was a clinical research fellow in gastrointestinal and oncologic surgery, and from 2012-2013 served as Administrative Chief Resident and Clinical Instructor in general surgery. Dr. Hayman received both her medical and public health degree from OHSU in 2006 and has a B.S. in biology from Tufts University in Massachusetts.
During her education and training, Dr. Hayman volunteered her time for various medical causes in India, Tanzania, Burkina Faso, and Honduras. She is an active member of the American College of Surgeons and has given a wide variety of presentations and published numerous papers on topics such as pancreatic cancer, colon cancer, and thyroid surgery. Outside of the office, Dr. Hayman enjoys cooking, reading, hiking, and spending time with her two daughters and husband.
“We are delighted to introduce Dr. Hayman as the newest member of the Gastrointestinal and Minimally Invasive Surgery practice,” said Dr. Richard Jamison, The Oregon Clinic. “Her outstanding training, thoughtful intelligence and calm demeanor are ideal attributes and we are very fortunate to have her as part of our team. She shares our commitment to minimally invasive surgical approaches and excellence in surgical care.”
