Dr. Hanson and is PA, Briannon Yadrick are AMAZING. The direct patient care given, their expertise, and all of their staff are TOP NOTCH. I have been given my life back. After suffering for far too long, they were steadfast in solving my issues and staying with me along my recovery. I wish I had gone to them from day one! I appreciate their thoroughness, and that they do not just resort to surgery. However, some of my issues did require surgery and I am finally moving without suffering in almost debilitating pain! I am truly grateful for the wonderful care received. Dr. Hanson is a meticulous surgeon, who is compassionate and his PA Briannon is just as awesome! What a wonderful team!!! It is truly rare to find such wonderful care in Nevada. Thank you all. What a tremendous staff. They truly do care, and provide dynamic services, including Xrays, MRIs, ultrasounds, injections, physical therapy, etc.

Had great experience with the whole team. Explaining all future options after draining my knee felt comfortable coming back if necessary. Would recommend him to a friend or anyone I encountered needing a orthopedic doctor.

Perfect. I would recommend Dr. Hanson to friends and family. He takes his time with you during the exam, listens to what you have to say and explains the options available and answers any questions. He has X-Ray capabilities there in his office so he can see what the problem is that you came in for. He doesn't rush you in and out of his office which I appreciate, like doctors do. His office is very professional and I was able to fill out my first time visit forms on line before the appointment. He has two offices for convince on locations in the valley. His attitude and time he gives his patients is refreshing and welcoming. I had a very pleasant experience with Dr. Hanson and plan for him to do my SCR Surgeryon my shoulder.

Staff were professional & helpful all around. Dr. Hanson is a patient advocate. He is open to many less invasive treatments to help your orthopedic problems. That being said, he is an excellent surgeon should you need one. The office was well run. I was in & out under an hour!!

Excellent care. Conservative treatment. I really liked Dr. Hanson. He has a way of making you feel that you are important to him and he is there for you. I am already pretty much out of pain with one steroid shot. PA Chris was excellent and personable too. You can tell they both really like the practice of sports medicine. From intake as a new patient, to x-ray and treatment was less than an hour.
