Dr. Hansen did a total hip replacement for me. I had been dreading it and putting it off for two years. I finally cried uncle and got it done. The surgery went so well I felt good enough that I didn't have much pain meds at all at the hospital and none when I returned home. My recovery was wonderful was up and running in a few days. When I went to physical therapy 2 weeks out my therapist was amazed at how great I was doing and I didn't need much therapy at all. My experience was great!

I was referred to Dr. Hansen in 2015 .. I had a bad hip replacement done 2 yrs. earlier (from a different Dr.) .. Constant pain . Could hardly walk. After a couple more x-rays and a couple of tests, it was recommended that I have a hip revision.. Dr. Hansen and his staff set up a date for the surgery .. It was done in Oct. 2015. Totally respectful of his patients and in a very caring manner .. I have been pain free since the surgery .. He is a very superior Dr. in my opinion.. FABULOUS !!!

I think Dr. Hansen's motto must be: Settle for Perfect! He was genuinely interested in me as a patient and as a person during my entire experience. His thoroughness in explaining the procedure eliminated my fears and anxieties. The surgery couldn't have been more successful. I had very little pain following the surgery and appreciated his attentiveness while I was in the hospital and in follow-up appointments. When I have the other hip replacement surgery, it will definitely be with Dr. Hansen
