What People Say About Dr. Matthew Hansen, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

If you are an athlete undergoing ACL surgery, I do not recommend Dr. Hansen. The procedure he uses is old-fashioned and while it may ensure the ACL graft is not likely to tear, the graft will be unstable for lateral movements and destroy your meniscus (the graft placement on the femur is too vertical). I had ACL reconstruction surgery with him in Dec 2017. 8 months later at physical therapy, during a lateral movement drill, I tore my meniscus because of my knee's instability.

Multiple poor experiences. He drained my daughter's cyst. The substance he took from the cyst, he dug thru it on the exam table, thereby contaminating it, then he didn't have enough sample left to send for a biopsy. He should have obtained the sample first, then examined the remaining substance. Several hours late to the appt. Attitude didn't seem to great either. There are lots of other docs, try one of them first.

Dr. Hansen (Go Utes!) has carried out total reverse replacements on both of my shoulders (severe osteoarthritis) during the past six months. The latest one (just three weeks ago) was carried out using computer navigation using highly detailed CT scans to more precisely fit my prosthesis into my body and has led to much less pain (off of Oxycodone within 7 days) and a faster healing and recovery time. Deepest thanks to Dr. Hansen and his PA, Geoff Streetor and his OUTSTANDING staff! Hook 'em!

We were referred by a friend and visited Dr Hansen after already seeing 4 orthopedic surgeons. We already had committed to the 4th Surgeon thinking he would work. We needed ACL reconstruction for our son who is 15 yr old freshman. Dr Hansen has complete knowledge of the 3 different types of Grafts for ACL rebuild. A professional. After we talked more about our son's Athletic ability, we both thought the Patella Graft was best suited for our son. I would Highly recommend Dr Hansen He's a 10!!

Dr. Hansen is a consummate professional whose judgment I rely on explicitly. We have homes in the east and the west and we will, absent an emergency, come back to Phoenix to see Dr Hansen for an Ortho procedure, without reservation and with confidence we have a GREAT orthopedic physician to provide care.

This man in my opinion is the best surgeon in Phoenix.... period. I had a really bad shoulder that came out 100% perfect. Professional, personable and genuinely concerned and involved with his patients. What more could anyone ask? How about adding his very qualified and professional STAFF as well! If I need to trust someone to cut on me and fix something critical, this is the guy I'm going to!

I saw Dr. Hanson afternoon after sustaining a significant injury. He was very compassionate and kind. Bedside manner fantastic, but even more important are his superior skills as a surgeon, knowledge and expertise.

Being a healthcare professional myself, I can tend to be a little more critical of health petticoats than most people. Dr Hansen is a top notch physician. Excellent communication and patient education, with genuine compassion. His PA Jeff is also in the same league of excellence. Highly recommended!

I had broken my knee in a motorcycle accident. Dr Hansen gave me a number of options about how to proceed with treatment for my injuries, while making sure I was well informed of the pros and cons of each option before making any decisions. Overall, the experience was as perfect as I could have asked for. My recovery has been ahead of all expectations, and I'm jumping rope less than a year after my accident.

I became a patient of Dr. Hansen's late last year, and I couldn't be happier about choosing him as my surgeon. Dr. Hansen is warm and attentive. He will spend all the time necessary to listen to your concerns and answer your questions. He is never dismissive of your concerns. His assistants are also amazing. They are incredibly kind and return calls extremely quickly. Though Dr. Hansen is part of a large group, his care is exceptional. I'd give him more stars if I could!

During our pre-surgery discussion Dr. Hansen was very clear and concise about what could and could not be done during my elbow surgery. The post-surgery results was exactly as we had discussed, and my results could not have been better. I would highly recommend Dr. Hansen, and I will use him again.

Dr. Hansen performed my surgery on a very serious skiing knee ligament injury. Dr. Hansen and his staff have been very professional throughout the whole process. I should be skiing again soon thanks to Dr. Hansen, his staff and the onsite Physical Therapy staff as well.

I was unaware of Dr. Hansen's reputation prior to being referred to him for my shoulder surgery, but I have come to realize that there are many who feel as I do that he is quite competent in his craft, and that he has a genuine concern for his patients to be able to return to a normal, active lifestyle. I enjoyed observing him actually listening to me as I expressed concerns, or when I sought more understanding. Dr. Hansen is surrounded by an amazing staff and Assistants. A great experience!

Great guy! Dr Hansen was the first doctor of 3 and after more than a decade found out the real reason for my shoulder pain. In the last doctors just sent me to PT but in the long run it didn't help at all. Dr Hansen took every approach to figure out my problem and tried everything before resorting to surgery. However surgery was the only answer for me. He did a great job and now I haven't felt pain in my shoulder nor does it pop when I lift it above my head! Again, great guy!!
