I have had a positive experience with Dr Hanson and his care team. When I had my back issues, Dr Hanson explained my issues, drew diagrams, wrote things down and showed me on my MRI. Dr Hanson presented me with options, told me what I could expect from each option and gave me time to decide. I tried some more conservative treatments at first but eventually had surgery ~ it was a success! I feel so much better and my only regret is that I waited so long. Thank you to Dr Hanson and his team.

Dr Hanson is a unique in his patient approach in that he speaks with you, not at you. He thoroughly listens to the symptoms and provides alternative solutions to help guide you to an educated decision on the course of treatment that bests addresses the cause of pain, rather than just treating the pain.

I have had three lower back surgeries with Dr. Hanson. My issues were being caused due to a motorcycle accident over 35 years ago. I received two fusions and one surgery to remove bone spurs on my spine. I am 100% happy with my improvement!!! The surgery itself went very well...Dr. Hanson was very informative so about what would be happening to me. My pre surgery visits and my post surgery visits were always positive. Dr. Hanson is very encouraging at all points along the way.

Dr. Hanson was very thorough in explaining what needed to be done to correct my lumbar spinal stenosis and bone spurs. Once the severity of the problem was clear from the MRI, he rearranged his schedule to get me into surgery as quickly as possible. I am now two weeks out from surgery and the recovery is going very well. I would highly recommend Dr. Hanson to anyone who has back problems that may need surgery.

From start to finish Dr Hanson was excellent. I had a very positive experience with him and his staff. I felt I had a very complex problem and he helped me understand my problem by drawing me pictures and reviewing my MRI with me. I've seen other surgeons for my problem and they didn't give me the confidence and great bedside manner that Dr Hanson did. His surgical skills pulled me through and I have had a wonderful outcome. I'm so thankful for Dr Hanson. He personally called me after surgery.

Very personable and confident but also very hard to contact when there are concerns. He is out of the office or in surgery. I am sure he is, but many of us have to contact people outside of our scheduled day. It speaks to probable arrogance and a sense of superiority. My mom has had complications from surgery with him and he has not been very communicative post surgery. Wonderful before though. Posting this because it's been a month since last CT scan and has not called back. You decide.
