Daniel W. Hanson, M.D., F.A.A.O.S

Dr. Hanson provides clinical assessment and treatment for all patients with spine pathology and works closely with pain management specialists to target and help perform pain mapping to provide the most effective treatment plan for the patient. 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 a 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.
