Mary Anna Denman MD, FACOG, FACS

“I create a partnership with my patients to incorporate their goals and values into a treatment plan. I strive to provide full, unbiased information so patients understand their options as we work together to make decisions about their care.”

Dr. Denman has over ten years of experience in minimally invasive and robotic surgery and for five years served as the director for gynecologic robotic training at Oregon Health & Science University. She chose the field of urogynecology because she is interested in the surgical challenges it offers and the opportunity to make a positive difference in patient’s lives.

Conditions like incontinence, fistulas, and pelvic organ prolapse often limit people’s activities or social interactions. By treating these conditions, Dr. Denman helps patients regain the enjoyment of life while improving their overall health. Through patient education and non-surgical and surgical interventions, Dr. Denman is able to address urogynecological issues and alleviate embarrassing symptoms. For Dr. Denman, it is a humbling and gratifying moment when a patient’s life is completely altered after treatment.

In her spare time, Dr. Denman spends time with her family—hiking in the summer and skiing in the winter. She coaches girls youth lacrosse each spring.
