Our surgical center is built on excellence through education, research and applied results in today's latest advancements in spine surgery technologies.
Traditional spine surgery involves making an incision, cutting the muscle off the spine, placing a retractor, and then performing the surgery through an open approach.
An endoscopic spine procedure is typically done through a 7mm incision, a portal is placed separating the muscle fibers, and the procedure is performed through a small tube.
Dr. Hanson performs the endoscopic procedure, which leads to less pain, quicker recovery, and less scar tissue.
Dr. Hanson has been awarded Top Doctor for the fourth year in a row. This is his sixth recent award for his outstanding work in the Twin Cities metro area.
