Dr. Hanson has an era of confidence that your knee will be fine after the replacement. He has a friendly way about him and asks direct questions that pertain to the procedure. He visited me twice during post - op to check on my status and reminded me to get up and stand straight. Made me feel that all would be fine.

As terrified as I was to have the surgery, it was a good experience and my surgery went well. And now I am on the mend. Dr Hanson was very good to explain the procedure.

From first consult to surgery, Dr Hanson and team were very efficient and professional. The app “Get Well Loop” they use for you is excellent and a great step by step from preop to post op info. The Fresno Surgical Hospital is an excellent facility for surgery and after care. Dr Hanson is top notch and caring. Highly recommend.

I truly believe Dr Hanson and his entire staff are the absolute Best Choice I could have made. The care and thoughtfulness for me as a patient was outstanding. The fact that he sends an email every single day for several weeks to keep on top of my recovery makes me feel so secure and well cared for.

Outstanding care. My condition and options were clearly explained. When surgery was selected as my best option, I was informed of what would take place in the OR and what to expect after during recovery. Great outcome provided by a great doctor and staff.

Dr. Hanson is an outstanding orthopedic surgeon, with many years of experience behind him. He was highly recommended to me by several people. I had needed the total knee replacement surgery for 10 years, and he gave me the courage to finally have the surgery performed. His medical skills are outstanding. He's very easy to talk with. He graciously answers all my questions and concerns. His staff are very professional and knowledgeable. Thank you, Dr. Hanson??

Dr Hansen provides the best medical treatment for you. I had a total knee replacement and had little discomfort right after surgery. I’ve had shoulder and hip replacement and and was told knee replacement is the toughest. I’m two weeks post-op and able to walk without a walker and range of motion is getting better. Like Dr Hansen said “Ice and elevate.” I’m not saying it’s a walk in the park during rehabilitation but Dr Hansen provides all the necessary information and advice to get you back on your feet. Dr Hansen is hands down the best.

Dr. Hanson is great, as is his entire team, from office staff to his P.A. Greg Miller. I loved working with them and am completely satisfied with the results. I had total knee replacement surgery for both knees. Each knee was done separately, three months apart. As I write this, I am only two weeks past my second surgery and walking unassisted, Thank you Dr. Hanson .....you are AWESOME!
