I had a total hip replacement and from my first visit Dr. Hansen put me at ease and told me exactly what to expect. He listens to me and answers all my questions. I'm glad Dr. Christian Jones referred me to him.

It was a wonderful experience, except for one thing - once she told me I couldn't have my surgery yet. He failed to tell me what I should do about the pain and mobility until I can have my surgery. He just left me out there to hurt.
