Dr. Hannum listened to my concerns and explained my likely outcomes clearly. I already had knee rreplacement done by Dr. Hannum and am returning for a hip replacement. I have complete confidence in his skill as a surgeon.

Doc says I'm good to go! Thank you Jesus and Dr. Scott Hannum for the ability to walk again! 2 years out and I couldn't feel better for a 70 year old. Should you ever need hip or knee replacement, it is worth the trip to Wilmington to see the best physician in the state!

Dr. Hannum was very friendly but professional. He is went over results of my X-rays explaining the problem that I was having. He was able to recommend a treatment for short term immediately giving me relief from pain with a long term recommendation for a treatment. I would very highly recommend him to family and friends that were seeking a doctor with hip and knee issues.

I was very relieved that Dr Hannum was looking at my knee. He listened and I feel I will be pain free soon after 6 months of misdiagnosis.

I had a complete hip replacement 3 years ago. When asked I NEVER recommend Dr Hannum. He did a horrible sloppy hip replacement, without ever having an MRI done. I could Not walk for 2 weeks. I ended up with one leg one inch longer than the other. I spent 3 weeks in a rehab facility with physical therapy 2 times a day. After I was released I spent 5 months twice a week in physical therapy to walk and be able to raise my leg. I could Not drive a car for 3 months I still have severe nerve damage , 3 years later. Numerous visits to Dr. Hannums office, was talking to deaf ears. No admission of screwing up my leg, was told the leg would grow longer again and be the same length. he put in 3 different hip replacements to get one to fit. He did a horrible surgery on me. Didnt care he left me crippled. He didn't prepare for my surgery, horrible follow up and NO lack of concern or options to.fix his screw up. After all hammering and banging around during surgery, I now have severe back pain.

Dr.Hannum is going to fix my knee problems. He has done two hips and one knee for my mother. I am glad that he has told me that my knee needs to be fixed and that he is doing it. He is a SUPER doctor!

Dr Hannum did fabulous surgery on my right knee in 2009. I saw him for my left knee October 2019, due to family illness, I’m unable to have surgery at this time. He explained possibility of help from an injection and medication to help with inflammation. He is kind, thorough and excellent doctor! This entire practice Rocks!!

Dr. Hannum replaced my right knee in 2014 and left knee in 2019. Both knees better than I could of ever dreamed they would be. Can imagine any other surgeon doing a better job. I’m well satisfied with both.
