  • Dr. Hansen performed shoulder arthroscopy surgery on my 13 year old daughter. He did a wonderful job. My daughter was thrilled that the scarring is minimal, and that after physical therapy she'll be able to participate in sports. Dr. Hansen was professional and explained everything in detail. I'd definitely recommend him to anyone needing these types of surgeries.
