      Had torn medial meniscus, saw Dr. Hansen, got in immediately. He drained swollen knee, gave steroid shot. Within a month, knee still hurt (steroid shots never work in me), he suggested laparoscopic surgery. Surgery scheduled in no time, pain was gone and I walked out. Follow ups with Dr or PA were great, PA and office staff very nice, efficient. So impressed, I scheduled a needed back surgery with their back surgeon, Dr. Song - completely opposite, he and his staff uncaring - changed surgeon.

      I may come back & review as I haven't even been able to get an appointment to see this doctor. Instead, I have been on hold for nearly 30 minutes -- 3 calls. The 1st time, the person who answered asked a myriad of questions and then "put me through to the right office", which never answered. The 2nd time, I went through the same questions with a second person, was "put through to the right office" and after holding for 11 min. 20 sec., hung up and called a 3rd time-still put on hold. No appt yet

      Best doctor around. Did an amazing job with the two surgeries that I had with him. Excellent staff. Highly recommended. Worked well around my special circumstances to get me in as soon as possible.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Hansen's Care Philosophy

      I am an orthopedic surgeon with sports medicine and shoulder replacement expertise. Education is very important to me. I do everything I can to help you understand your condition and available treatment options. I emphasize hip preservation surgery for those who do not need hip replacement. I am an expert in arthroscopic and reconstructive surgery of the shoulder, elbow, hip, and knee. This includes advanced surgeries such as hip arthroscopy, revision ACL, and reverse shoulder replacement.
