Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Hansen "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 am an expert in arthroscopic and reconstructive surgery of the shoulder, elbow, hip, and knee.  I emphasize hip preservation surgery for those who do not need hip replacement. This includes advanced surgeries such as hip arthroscopy, revision ACL, Tommy John surgery, arthroscopic rotator cuff repair, multi-ligament knee reconstruction and reverse shoulder replacement."
