I suffered a herniated disc and was in extreme pain for months. I could barely stand or walk without suffering. Dr. Dan Hanson performed my endoscopic microdiscectomy surgery two days ago and I am feeling great! I have my life back. Dr. Hanson was helpful and offered me a good solution when I felt other medical professionals had let me down/failed to offer a good option. Dr. Hanson was able to perform a less invasive version of the surgery than the other doctors I saw and talked to. This allowed me to have a quicker recovery and a brighter outlook. As if this isn’t enough of a reason to go through Dr. Hanson, his office manager Jackie was amazing! My insurance almost caused me to have my surgery delayed and initially denied my precertification. Jackie went to bat for me and helped me to get it approved! I am sure she had lots of other work to do, but took the time to ensure I got relief! Thanks!
I met Dr. Dan Hanson a couple of years ago when I moved to Minnesota from the west coast. He is hands down the most passionate spine surgeon/specialist I’ve ever met. His level of knowledge in the diagnosis and treatment of spine disorders is second to none. He utilizes cutting edge, minimally invasive procedures to help his patients recover from pain and dysfunction quickly and permanently. Dr. Hanson has successfully treated a number of my patients for their spinal injuries/conditions and the feedback is nothing but positive and appreciative of everyone. He makes himself available for his patients and always follows up with each and every one of them in a timely manner. I’m thankful that I have Dr. Hanson offers his expert opinion with difficult spine cases and I’m confident my patients receive only the best care when I refer them to the Minnesota Spine Institute.
Since my first consultation with Dr. Hanson, my experience has been great. I had two discs replaced and I feel like a new person. Dr. Hanson and his office show that they really care about their patients. I would highly recommend them for any back issues you may have.
It's been a couple months out and I'm doing great. It was the right decision to go with Dr Hanson and he and his team are the best, I would recommend him to anyone, thanks again!
If you're ever having neck or spine pain, Dr. Dan Hanson is who you want to call. Everyone is extremely friendly and always has the patients best interest in mind.
Dr. Hanson has been amazing! He and Jackie have been super responsive and helpful. I was in an excruciating level of pain from a C5-C6 disc extrusion. With some right arm weakness and numbness through my right thumb, I was fairly desperate to gather a number of opinions and make some quick decisions about the best course of care and receive some pain relief. He went out of his way to help me upload my MRI images and reviewed them in detail with me. He clearly explained my options and what he recommended as a course of action. The referrals were made and I was able to schedule my non-surgical treatment. I really appreciate his experience and opinions, and really felt that his recommendations were in my best interest, regardless of the business it generated for him. I can't recommend him highly enough and if I end up needing surgery I will continue to work with Dr. Hanson. Thank you!
I am approaching the 1 year mark post-op, and am 99% pain-free. My experience with Dr. Hansen and his team is nothing short of fantastic, and while the surgery solved the worst of my back pain, the guidance and personal care I received prior to making the decision to have a lumbar fusion are truly the reason the decision was easy to make. I cannot speak highly enough of Dr. Hansen and would recommend him to anyone dealing with chronic back pain. My recovery was swift (a short 2 months between surgery and my first day back at work full time) and I couldn't be happier with the results. I have my life back.
I had suffered for over 10 years with ruptured discs and had seen several doctors that wanted me to jump through hoops, unnecessary testing and too much time off work for recovery. I decided to look for laser specialists and searched across the country. Fortunately, I found Dr. Hanson right here in Minnesota. Dr. Hanson made me feel like he really cared to help me and went the extra mile. Dr. Hanson recommended a single level cervical disk replacement while another surgeon wanted to do a multilevel fusion. After surgery, I feel so much better. I wish I had found him sooner. He has followed up with me at different times to be sure I’m doing well. He is a very caring and gifted man! I would recommend him to anyone with spine issues!
Everything is going so good! I haven’t felt this good in 2.5 years!! Thank you so very very much for all you have done to help me!! I can’t thank you enough from the bottom of my heart! You guys were so awesome!! Thank you!!
