Hansen saw me at Renown hospital, told me I had slight irritation in my stomach. What I had was a bowel obstruction. My husband also saw him for a hernia and Hansen did his surgery and ruined our sex life. Would definitely not recommend.

I recently had urgent abdominal surgery by Dr. Hansen. He was calm, caring, and instilled confidence. The surgery was a success and post-operative attention was excellent.
