The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Hanson.
  • “I have been seeing Dr. Hanson since 1984, and he has performed 5 surgeries on me over the years. All with very good results. What sets Dr. Hanson apart besides his abilities, is the type of person he is.  My mother-in-law was in a care home with Alzheimers. She fell and broke off the end of her elbow. I called Dr. Hanson's office, and within 10 minutes, Dr. Hanson called me back. I explained what had happened and her issue with Alzheimers and the fact that she did not wait well due to the disease. He told me to bring her right in. Upon my arrival, he immediately saw her. She needed surgery. He was unable to do it at that time, so he set her up with another orthopedist at Sierra Pacific Orthopedics. My dad had knee problems. His doctor told him there was nothing they could do about the knee pain due to his health issues. While at an office visit, I spoke with Dr. Hanson regarding my dad's knee pain. He told me to have him call the office and he would see what he could do. Dr. Hanson saw him right away and was able to make him much more comfortable. My dad and mother-in-law had never been patients of his before. As busy as Dr. Hanson is, the way he spoke with me about their issues and the way he treated them was very special, and I will always be grateful. Greg and the rest of the staff are also outstanding.   Thank you, Dr. Hanson, for the way you have treated me all these years.”

  • “I had my total knee replacement surgery 7 months ago (Oct. 2015), and am SO glad that I did. Within 3 weeks of the surgery, my left knee felt more steady than it had before. Greg, Dr. Hanson's P.A. is very personable, professional, knowledgeable, and helpful. Dr. Hanson was very upbeat and informative before, during, and after my procedure. He encouraged me to do my exercises, use the knee bending machine (which made a WORLD of difference!), and answered any concerns I had. He recommended that I go home after the hospital instead of into a rehab facility, and I'm so glad I listened to him! I have had a lot of injuries then physical therapy over the years and I can't say enough about the P.T. department and staff. Very good P.T.'s and assistants that stay on schedule and are quite encouraging. They helped my recovery a LOT. I'm scheduled to have my right knee done in Oct. 2016! I trust the folks at SPOC and highly recommend them.”

  • “I had a right total knee replacement on Dec. 21, 2015, and just had my last appointment May 17, 2016. I am very satisfied with the results of my surgery and the outcome of my knee. My left knee needs to have the same operation at a future date and I will not hesitate to have it done again by Dr. Hanson. My overall experience at SPOC was excellent.”

  • “Just had total knee replacement 5 days ago & thanks to Dr. Hanson & his team, I am feeling great. It was a good decision to get my knee done, as Dr. Hanson told me it was pretty worn when he got in there. I have great confidence in Dr. Hanson & Greg Mellor that the whole process from the beginning when I was treating my knee, to the decision to have replacement surgery, to the surgery itself, have all been done with careful consideration that I have the best possible outcome and am able to get back to the activities I love. I am faithfully following Dr's orders and doing my PT and am happy to report I am doing better than I anticipated and am in far less pain than I expected. Having my other knee replaced is in my future, and now I won't have as much hesitation due to the fact this 1st knee replacement has gone so smoothly! Dr. Hanson, Greg Mellor, and the team at SPOC and Fresno Surgical Hospital are outstanding!”

  • “Dr. Hanson has repaired both of my shoulders and replaced my left knee. He has always given me clear information on the surgery, what he will do, how long for recovery and answers all questions I may have. I have a history of osteoarthritis which requires many trips to SPOC. Your staff is always professional, efficient and caring.”

  • “Dr. Hanson and his staff were true professionals in every aspect of the term. Dr. Hanson operated on my shoulder and I have never had better function of it. It has been almost two years and I am happy to say I have fully returned to all my activities running marathons and lifting weights. Very activity with no restrictions. Thank you doctor.”

  • “Over the last 27 years, I have had many experiences with Dr. Hanson, and I know that there is no one better. I had many visits with regards to my knees. After many years of injections to my knees, it was time to do a total knee replacement. My right knee was replaced first, then some years later my left knee was done. I have also had Dr. Hanson repair both shoulders because of rotator tears. I am proud to recommend Dr. Hanson.”

  • “Outstanding, Dr. Hanson has a great staff, Greg is super. Had the surgery in March and on May 6th we went on a five-day cruise and May 17th Dr. Hanson gave me an all clear to get back to my regular activities. For me that would be an average of 15,000 steps a day, In 2016 I did over 6 million steps that year. To celebrate my new knee and my 80th birthday calls for another 6 million steps in one year. Thanks again for all you guys have done.”

  • “Dr. Hanson did both of my knee replacements with great success. Before having the surgery I was in a great deal of pain, I had difficulty walking, I was unable to sleep without pain and unable to function most of the time. He took away the pain and once again I was able to walk and sleep without pain. Thank you. Dr. Hanson. I have also seen Dr. Thaxter at SPOC. He performed my Left Hip replacement, and I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Thaxter and Dr. Hanson. Dr Thaxter took away the severe pain that had developed due to both my knees being so bad. After both knee replacements had healed, it was now time to have something done about the severe pain I was having in my hip. Dr Thaxter replaced my hip and two weeks later I was up walking and ready to go on with my life, and without pain. Thank you, Dr. Thaxter.”
