Video Transcription:

I’m Dane Hansen, and I specialize in treatment of hip and knee arthritis, and joint replacement surgery. I’m a very active person, and I enjoy being outdoors. My new passion is waterskiing, so I do a lot of waterskiing when I can. I run, I golf, anything I can do to be outside. Also got a family, so I have a young daughter that I spend as much time as I can with, and that’s been a really great experience as well. What really drives me in my job and in orthopedics is the ability to get people functioning again. Especially in arthritis, there’s people that can be as minimal as having some daily aches and pains or as severe as being wheelchair bound or even worse. So the ability to see these patients, help them from a nonsurgical standpoint as far as medicines and injections and things like that, but also having the ability to do surgeries that can get them functioning again, whatever kind of level that means, whether it be trying to get back to athletic-type activities – skiing, sports, things like that – or just as much as being able to walk without needing a walker. Seeing those people and watching them come back after they’ve had that surgery and they’ve recovered is a very rewarding thing.
