Hana L. Takusagawa, M.D.
Doctors sometimes become so focused on treating the disease at hand that they forget that their patients have lives outside of clinical interactions. Dr. Takusagawa tailors her treatment recommendations to provide the best care for her patients in the context of their lives.
Board-certified in ophthalmology, Dr. Takusagawa is a glaucoma specialist and comprehensive ophthalmologist. She was born in New York, raised in Lawrence, Kansas, and graduated from Harvard University magna cum laude with a degree in Biochemistry. She received her medical degree from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York, followed by an internship at Columbia University in New York, and an ophthalmology residency at Harvard Medical School in Boston. Specialty training in glaucoma at the Devers Eye Institute and Oregon Health and Sciences University (OHSU) in Portland brought her to the West Coast.
After completing her training, Dr. Takusagawa joined the OHSU faculty and served as a glaucoma specialist and Associate Director of the Glaucoma Fellowship for over 5 years during which she was awarded the Casey Eye Residency Teaching Award. She is currently an affiliate Associate Professor in Ophthalmology at OHSU.
Dr. Takusagawa specializes in the medical and surgical treatment of adult glaucoma and cataracts as well as comprehensive ophthalmology. She has a research interest in ocular imaging in glaucoma and she has published and lectured extensively in this area. An avid teacher, she has taught cataract and glaucoma surgery to over 30 trainees at OHSU as well as serving as a faculty member at the Harvard Intensive Cataract Surgery Training Course since 2016.
