This is my second visit to Dr. Hakanson. Dr. Hakanson replaced my right hip joint and everything went without a hitch. I was pleased with the exchange of information about the procedure. Dr. Hakanson and I are planning on the replacing of the left hip joint.

Saw Dr Hakanson by happenstance when my provider had to be out of the office. She was wonderful. I greatly appreciated her taking time to work in other patients on her busy schedule most of all. She was updated on my situation and picked up the reins and ran. She helped me mentally as well as physically to continue my healing Lewis Gale Orthopedics is the best!

On May 19th. I had a 1345 visit with Dr. Hakanson. This was a follow-up that was not planned, but was necessary due to a problem with a knee. Dr. Hakanson, and the entire staff were professional and responded on time with no waiting required. Dr. Hakanson has learned the art of listening to understand her patient's needs, not just assume that the patient's explanation fits some predetermined analysis. She BUBBLES with enthusiasm . No matter how you feel upon arrival, you'll most certainly depart feeling much improved just from being treated so professionally by the Doctor, and the entire staff. My problem was resolved with X-Rays, and some follow-up therapy to be arranged at a later date.

Dr. Hakanson is a kind, caring and empathetic doctor. From the moment I met her I liked everything about her. She listen to your concerns. She talks with you not at you. He professionalisms and work ethic is beyond compare. She performed a total knee replacement on both of my knees September 2019 and November 2019. Everything about both procedures went very well and my recovery has been excellent. The quality of my life has improved in every way. I cannot thank her enough. I’m forever grateful for her expertises.

Dr. Hakanson was my surgeon on Dec. 13, 2019. The procedures performed were a rotator cuff repair, debridement of labrum, and subacromial decompression. She was able to perform the procedure arthroscopically. Each time we met, before and after the surgery, Dr. Hakanson always took her time, explained what my options were, what was going to be done, and answered any questions I had. She was easy to talk with, and my surgery went extremely well. I would recommend Dr. Hakanson to anyone with a rotator cuff tear.

Dr. Hakanson is the best Orthopedic surgeon, she did my knee surgery and I had very little pain after the total knee replacement and I am doing great 4 weeks after surgery. My incision looks great and my mobility is much better. Definitely recommend her to anyone needing a replacement joint.

After suffering bilateral shoulder ligament damage, I went to see Dr. Hakanson at Lewis Gale Orthopedics. I researched and found that Dr. Hakanson has extensive backgound in sports related injuries. I knew that she could be counted on for excellent and very thorough examinations. She followed up with very easy to understand diagnosis and showed via display of the damage.
