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

Dr Hanson is very personable & after talking to 4 other doctors, he had the best bedside manner. Very open, patient & able to convey just enough about the surgery. I appreciate I can get xrays right there (instead of another trip & wait to an imaging center). I had hip surgery scheduled & thankfully went for a last opinion on a posterior cut which I was to told I had to have. Dr. Hanson does anterior incision, which I am a candidate for so I switched to Dr Hanson. Friendly office!

I recently had a total replacement of my right hip by Dr. Hanson. To say that I am pleased by the outcome, would be a total understatement! Every step in the process ... from the Joint Education program, to our pre-op conversation, my post-op recovery, my hospital stay (and numerous walks around the nurses station), my very quick recovery, and post-op follow up visit ... have all gone way better than I had expected! Highly recommend this guy and his wonderful staff!

Dr Hanson and all of his staff provide impeccable care. This office is caring in every aspect of care I am so thankful for each and every team member Compassion and standard of care is a 10. I was turned away from many Drs due to the complexity of the care that I needed. Dr Hanson stepped in to help me

Dr. Hanson's Care Philosophy

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.

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.
