About Dr. Hansen

A board-certified orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Regan Hansen joined Lewiston Orthopedics in 1999 after completing his medical training at the University of Utah School of Medicine and residency training at the prestigious Campbell Clinic in Memphis, Tennessee.

A native of Utah, Dr. Hansen received his undergraduate education at Brigham Young University where he was active in football, receiving All-Western Athletic Conference honors. He earned his Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of Utah School of Medicine in Salt Lake City, graduating in 1994.

Dr. Hansen specializes in robotic total joint reconstruction of the shoulders, hips, and knees. He performs the superior, posterior, and anterior total hip arthroplasty, which does not cut any muscle. He also offers minimally invasive total knee replacement, which requires a midvastus approach and no incision into the quadriceps tendon, which allows for earlier recovery of the knee. For this surgery, he also employs Mako® robotics, technology using CT imaging to create a patient-specific surgical map for the knee. Dr. Hansen’s expertise in total joint reconstruction allows him to perform numerous joint replacement surgeries annually, making him one of the highest volume surgeons for joint reconstruction.

Dr. Hansen also enjoys treating sports-related injuries. He frequently performs arthroscopic knee surgery, arthroscopic shoulder rotator cuff repair, and open repairs for reverse total shoulder replacement.

Dr. Hansen is currently licensed in Idaho and Washington and is board-certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery. He is available to see patients in Lewiston.

  • Dr. Hansen was the most kind, compassionate person for my mother who fell & broke her hip. He replaced her hip and spent a lot of time explaining things to us. I would highly recommend him.

  • He successfully repaired both my shoulders with minimal downtime and I believe 90% range of motion compared to pre-surgery 50%. Would recommend your office and Dr. Hansen to everyone.
