Dr. Hansen is the most caring doctor I have met. Very knowledgeable and explains every thing thoroughly. He did both of my knees six months apart

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.
