Dr. Roger S. Hansen, MD

Radiation Oncology | Male | 50 years old

Dr. Hansen is a Board Certified Radiation Oncologist specializing in the most advanced radiation techniques possible to deliver lethal radiation doses to cancer while protecting normal tissues which are immediately nearby. One of these techniques is High Dose Rate (HDR) brachytherapy. HDR brachytherapy is a treatment where a very intense radioactive seed is placed inside of the cancer area, left in place for just a few minutes to deliver the radiation "from the inside-out", then is removed from the patient so he / she is not radioactive. HDR brachytherapy is used most commonly for prostate, breast, and female gynecologic cancers, but it has a role in the treatment of many other cancers as well. Dr. Hansen is widely recognized as a national leader in High Dose Rate (HDR) brachytherapy implants. He is actively involved in teaching other Radiation Oncologists from around the world how to safely perform brachytherapy implants, and has published many articles in the most prestigious cancer journals in the country. Dr. Hansen's patients appreciate the one-on-one time he spends with them to explain their cancer, review treatment options, and answer the many questions that come with the diagnosis of cancer. He is your partner working with you and your other Doctors to develop the best approach for treating your specific cancer.Read more

Dr. Hansen is the Doctor that I have recommended to all friends and family that have had similar cancer issues that I have had. He is the reason I am alive today and doing well. He is the best.

I have know Dr. Hansen for over ten years. He is honest, thorough, and takes your case personally. I have been judged cancer free due to the great efforts of this outstanding physician. He was able to take the necessary early steps by way of Brachytherapy intervention that killed the tumors which had started to grow in my prostrate. I continue to see him on a yearly basis and I am happy to report that there is no new cancer. Recommendation to Friends and Family? YES!
in Ogden, UT |
Dr. Hansen is extremely patient and takes as much time as necessary to fully explain everything and to answer any and all questions. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Hansen.

Proper and specific radiation therapy of my aggressive prostate cancer saved my life!
in Huntsville, UT |
Dr Hansen in treating my prostate cancer was absolutely outstanding. He explained the hormone, Tomo, & Brachytherapy procedures in detail from start to finish. He answered all of my questions & concerns even calling me from his home on his day off when I had a question. Everything went exactly as he had explained. I found the whole procedure to be easier than I had expected. Also, Dr Fisher, the Gamma West & Ogden Regional Nurses & staff were outstanding. They showed they cared always!
