I had surgery in 2017 for scoliosis and spondylolisthesis. I thought the pain would be at least some better. I now have flat back on one side because the rod is straight. I can't straighten all the way and have severe pain ever since. Dr. Hanson refused to even consider fixing it and was happy to escort me out when I reached 2 years post op. He told me to find someone else.

After many years of suffering from undiagnosed scoliosis, Dr Hanson identified & totally repaired a fairly severe degree of curvature. I had had 5 previous unsuccessful surgeries due to incorrect diagnoses. Dr Hanson literally gave me my life back! There are not nearly enough stars for me to adequately rate this superior doctor! My surgery was done 4 1/2 years ago; and, never a day goes by that I don't celebrate what Dr Hanson did for me! M Owen
