About Dr. Kendall E Hansen MD
Dr. Kendall E Hansen has the following 2 specialties
- Pain Medicine
Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

I've been a patient of Dr. Hansen for 20 years. Hansen and his crew have saved my life. Before I started seeing him I could barely move, extremely depressed, and ready to just give up because the pain in my back in legs was too much. It is because of them I am able to actually live a somewhat normal life and able to walk. I would be in a wheelchair if not for them...or dead. I am very grateful for all they have done and given me back my life. I am still here to raise my kids and play an active role in their lives. I would recommend Hansen to anyone with back pain. He is a miracle worker

Getting Back A Good Quality of Life
Self-verified patient of Dr. Kendall E Hansen - Posted on January 18th, 2018
I was giving up hope of ever having a life without back and neck pain until I met Dr.Hansen.I was very depressed of constantly being in pain and haven't even reached the age of 60.After rear end car accidents had left me with nerve,muscle and joint damage,my back and neck was deterioratin rapidly.I couldn't enjoy things that most people take for granite,such as enjoying time with my grandchildren.After visits and treatments from Dr.Hansen,I am progressively improving and can see a light at the end of the tunnel.And I am doing it through his treatments without any use of addicting pain medications.Dr. Hansen and his superb staff have been a strong source of support for me getting physically better.I still have procedures left to do,but it sure is nice to now have hope.Somedays I believe I owe my life to Dr Hansen,because the depression that comes with all the excruciating pain was becoming unbearable.Nobody should have to live with that kind of pain.I thank Dr. Hansen with all my heart.My grandchildren thank him also. Sincerely, Barry Knaus, patient
