Explained everything clearly and completely. I didn't feel rushed or talked down too. Great doctor.

Excellent surgeon and a caring person.

Because I was 86 years old and had advanced osteoporosis, I knew that knee replacement surgery might be problematic. So I sought recommendations for a local orthopedic surgeon from medical people in other states as well as in New Mexico. I chose Dr. Hanosh because he was said to be unusually skillful and talented---a star in his field. The surgery went even better than I had dared to hope. I have had no problems with my new knee, and now, a year later, I am proud to recommend this outstanding surgeon. We are fortunate to have him in New Mexico.

Dr Hanish was very attentive and explained everything to where I could understand. He gave me options and I chose to wait.

I'm just giving 5 stars so I can post what I need to here, haven't dealt with you directly yet. My dad is in a lot of pain for over a year now with knee pain because of some stupid restriction many surgeons have on providing the surgery he needs until they said he loses 40 pounds. I am seriously fed up with seeing my dad in pain this long. He can't exercise with his knee constantly hurting. He is a retired veteran, he refuses to take pain killer medication so all he gets to cope with his pain is cortisol shots in his knee and he doesn't want to do bariatric surgery nor should he have to. Are you a surgeon who is willing to give him the surgery he needs or is there any surgeon in Albuquerque that will do it for him?

Dr. Hanosh is a compassionate human being and an excellent surgeon and provider. His staff is equally qualified and kind. Time and care is given at each appointment. My robotic knee surgery went extremely smoothly and successfully. I highly recommend Dr Hanosh and his office.
