The empathy Dr. Hanson has for his patients is partially based on his personal experience with the challenges of a spine injury resulting in surgery as well as recovery from several disc herniations using conservative non-surgical treatment.
Dr. Hanson developed and honed his expertise in spinal care while completing a Fellowship in spine surgery at Spine Surgery, PSC in Louisville, Kentucky and with the Indiana Spine Group in Indianapolis. Dr. Hanson completed his medical degree at the University of Minnesota and his residency in orthopedic surgery at Indiana University in Indianapolis. Dr. Hanson is board certified and a member of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons and the Norwegian American Orthopedic Society.
In his free time, Dr. Hanson enjoys spending time with his 3 children, hiking and playing guitar.
