So far the results of the surgery have been excellent. Prior to the surgery Dr. Hansen was available to thoroughly explain the procedure and answer all my questions. Since the surgery he has been in daily contact with me to follow up on my condition and to answer any questions. I have been very happy with the care I’ve received.

Very attentive to my needs and my care. I had a scar on my knee, prior to surgery, and Dr. Hansen was able to hide the previous scar. I'm very happy with the results.

I’ve had 2 knee replacements from Dr Hansen and both surgeries went perfect-no problems, no infections. He & his staff are fantastic & caring and I love the constant care checks & reminders via email during the entire recovery process. They are simply the best at what they do.

Hip replacement was very smooth. I was up and walking well within a few days. Dr. Hansen's post operation sessions were very supportive. 16 months after the operation, everything is fine. Dr. Hansen has also been helping me with arthritis in the knees. I cannot say enough positive things about him: awesome (to use an overused term) doctor and person.

In September, 2018 Dr. Hansen performed a total knee revision on my left knee after another surgeon at another institution had replaced the knee. I can walk again. Dr. Hansen is a truly remarkable surgeon. Carolyn Anthrop

Dr. Hanson and his team above excellent. Dr. Hanson is an excellent surgeon and that is what you want when you go into surgery. You don't care if they know your cat's name and your kids...that is not his job. The team checked in and responded to all concerns and questions.

The best Orthopedic Surgeon I COULD FIND. I HAD A TOTAL HIP REPLACEMENT IN 2016 (FROM ANOTHER SURGEON), AND AN NEEDED IMMEDIATE REVISION. HONESTLY KNOW ONE WANTED TO DEAL WITH MY ISSUE. DR HANSEN STEPPED UP AND HELPED ME IN A TIME OF REAL NEED. HE IS NOT ONLY A GREAT SURGEON, BUT A GREAT CARING DOCTOR. LAST MONTH HAD THE OTHER HIP REPLACED AND WAS UP WALKING AND OUT OF PAIN IN A COUPLE OIF DAYS. HE IS GOOD AND ALSO HAS AN EXCELLENT TEAM TO SUPPORT. I HIGHLY RECOMEND.

Dr. Hansen is very nice. It’s only been 2 weeks since surgery, so can’t really say how successful it’s been, but swelling is gone now, wound seems to be healing well, and I am walking w/o supports; no complications. The app they use to communicate is helpful, though the canned questions are a little awkward at times. But you can ask any questions and get answers on a daily basis, and upload photos. The financial services/ins. auth. folks were not very together; advice: plan ahead.
