Ronald Hanson, MD
Dr Hanson is a Sports Medicine specialist with extensive experience performing regenerative medicine procedures. Dr Hanson lectures and trains physicians in the US and around the world to use musculoskeletal (MSK) ultrasound for regenerative orthopedic procedures. He is actively involved with sports medicine societies and the International Cellular Medicine Society to develop training programs, guidelines and curricula that promote excellence in both regenerative medicine and MSK ultrasound.
Dr Hanson combines many approaches to guide a patient toward healing and restoring function. At the Centeno-Schultz Clinic, this translates into using (and developing) the most advanced regenerative platelet and stem cell therapies in the US combined with improving structure, alignment, nerve function, stability and pain. He is also at the forefront nationally in developing minimally invasive nerve, tendon, ligament and bone spur removal procedures using MSK ultrasound.
Dr Hanson completed his training and practiced in Minnesota and Utah, where he had developed a sports, regenerative medicine and MSK ultrasound practice before joining the Centeno-Schultz Clinic in early 2010. He is privileged to have the companionship of his wife, Jodi, and their daughters Aly and Madi. He enjoys all types of outdoor recreation, traveling, hiking, scuba diving and Scouting.
