I was very impressed. Listens, and most important made me feel that I actually know whats going on with me. Was very willing to move slowly forward instead of pushing toward surgery. Has given me several options to begin with. Dr. Hansen was easy to converse with and very friendly! I was very nervous and he put me at ease. Highly recommend

Dr.Hansen, I am delighted to have you as my doctor. Appreciate the time you spent with us discussing your findings of the best path forward for both of my knees. You were thorough sharing about kwhat is required for my replacement. Plus, you listened to my concerns regarding some of the issues I had with my first knee replacement: anesthetia, and the problems I had with the pain medications after surgery. I loved your positive, upbeat sense of humor. You answered all of my concerns. Thank you

Dr. Hansen performed a total hip replacement the end of Sept. 2018, I am so happy with the results that I’m having the right hip done in Jan. 2019.

During my very first visit with dr Hansen, I stressed to him that I wanted my hip replacement surgery to be performed from the front (anterior approach)... he assured me he would take care of me. During the pre-op appt several months later... the PA asked me to sign ONE FORM that stated the possible complications ... which included dislocation. I said “that shouldn’t be much of a concern with the anterior approach, right?” “Oh, dr Hansen doesn’t do that.. he does a modified posterior”.

I ask the doctors at TCO who would be the best doctor to do a total knee replacement for me & Dr Perry said Dr Hansen. On February 21st Dr Hansen did my first knee replacement on my right knee. I was so satisfied with It. And just six weeks later we did my left knee total knee replacement. I am in the recovery part of my second surgery and so very ecstatic that everything turned out so well. I am finishing my second session of physical therapy. Dr. Hansen is the right person for the TNR.

I was impressed how personable Dr. Hansen was. He readily referred me to another Provider who could help more than he could. Dr. Hansen was very thorough in explanations. I would recommend him to a friend.

At the age of 42 I needed to have both of my hips replaced due to them not forming properly in my younger years. I had my left one done first and Dr. Hansen did a fantastic job. He explained everything in detail and answered all of of my questions. I felt that he cared about me and my condition. I would highly recommend him.
