The Oregon Clinic, the state’s largest multi-specialty, physician-owned medical practice, is expanding its women’s health services to include two physicians and a nurse practitioner from UroGynecology Associates, a group specializing in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery. Urogynecology is a new specialty for The Oregon Clinic and complements the growing women’s health practice that includes obstetrics, gynecology, and nurse-midwife services by bringing expertise in female pelvic floor dysfunction, urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, childbirth injury, and bowel control issues.

“Joining The Oregon Clinic is a phenomenal opportunity. We are thrilled to be a part of this exceptional group of specialists and administrators who will provide a strong foundation for our group as we continue to practice in the way that we love,” stated Lesley Otto, MD, UroGynecology Associates.

The addition of Urogynecology Associates brings two board-certified surgeons in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery and one board-certified women’s health nurse practitioner to The Oregon Clinic:

  • Sarah Boyles, MD, MPH, FACOG, FACS
  • Lesley Otto, MD, FACOG, FACS
  • Kathryn Hill, WHNP-BC

Dr. Boyles joined UroGynecology Associates after fellowship in 2005. Dr. Otto completed her fellowship in 1999 and remained at OHSU until 2003 when she left to become a founding member of UroGynecology Associates. Dr. Boyles and Dr. Otto are involved locally and nationally in their field and strive to provide empathetic and evidence-based treatments. Both physicians perform traditional prolapse repair and minimally-invasive surgery, and provide a full spectrum of surgical and non-surgical treatment options for prolapse, incontinence, and childbirth injuries.

Kathryn Hill, WHNP, holds national board certification in Women’s Health and has developed the practice’s unique Conservative Management Program emphasizing and maximizing non-surgical approaches to these conditions. The success of this program has been a welcome balance to the practice.

“We warmly welcome the physicians and staff from UroGynecology Associates to our growing women’s health practice. We are pleased to further expand the care options available for women and offer treatments for complex pelvic conditions beyond the standard obstetrics and gynecology specialties,” stated Craig Fausel, MD, CEO for The Oregon Clinic.
