Learn about this Doctor

Care Philosophy

My father was a physician at Grossmont Hospital starting in 1960, so medicine and Grossmont Hospital are both in my blood. I knew that becoming a physician would give me the academic and professional fulfillment I needed while being able to live in the same environment in which I grew up. My goal is to provide you with the best possible care in a friendly and professional atmosphere and to treat my patients with the same respect I would want for my family and friends.Read more

    Conditions Treated

    Dr. Hanson says..

    Dr. Hanson's practice revolves primarily around arthritic conditions and injuries involving the hip and knee.  Philosophically, all patients are treated as conservatively as possible, with surgery being a last resort.  Treatments provided in Dr. Hanson's office include injections of medications such as cortisone, Ketorolac, Prolotherapy, and PRP under Ultrasound guidance.  Physical Therapy, bracing, and other modalities are also provided.  Finally, we also have access to medications available only through investigational protocols with BioSolutions Clinical Research Center and the San Diego Stem Cell Treatment Center. If none of those work, or are not desired by the patients, Dr. Hanson is a leading expert in Arthroscopy and Joint Replacement Surgery.
