What Are People Saying About Dr. Hansen?

Cynthia E Wick

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 TKR.

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

Stan Bryson

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.

Lind, WA

I couldn't have found a better orthopedic doctor than Dr Hansen. He is a very caring doctor. I'm totally pleased with my surgery. He also has a wonderful staff. I highly recommend Dr Hansen and his staff.
