Dr. Scott Hannum is an amazing surgeon! He is very knowledgeable and answers all questions. Bilateral knee replacements were the answer for me in getting my life back. Thanks for the tendonitis diagnosis, by day 3, feeling much better.

Scott Hannum Review


Dr. Scott Hannum and his staff have provided me with the best care (hip) and customer service. They go above and beyond what is expected of them and I appreciate it. They answer all my questions and leave no stone unturned when it comes to my care. Friendly, polite, courteous and respectful, welcoming smiles, caring and gentle even when I’m in pain... who could ask for a better team. I recommend to anyone who has hip problems.
