"Dr. Hansen is a neurologist who has been specializing in pain management for thirty years. He received his medical degree from George Washington University and did his neurology training at the Mayo Clinic where he also did a a fellowship in neurophysiology. He then went to Johns Hopkins Hospital for another fellowship in critical care medicine and neurology. After finishing his naval service at Portsmouth Naval Hospital, he stayed in the Tidewater area as a full time faculty member of the Department of Neurology at Eastern Virginia Medical School.
While in the Navy, Dr. Hansen served as the Medical Officer on the USS Virginia, just after finishing his medicine internship at Bethesda Naval Hospital in Washington D.C. He completed his naval service as staff neurologist and director of the intensive care unit at Portsmouth Naval Hospital. Instead of returning to Baltimore, he accepted a faculty position at EVMS before leaving to start a private practice neurology group, Southeastern Neurology. He was introduced to pain management by serving as assistant medical director and then as medical director for Tidewaters only in-patient pain unit at Maryview Hospital. As a result of caring for these patients, the practice became increasing focused on the treatment of chronic pain and made a full commitment to pain treatment by becoming Southeastern Pain Management Group in 1998, and then the Center of Pain Management in 2001. An affiliation with Bon Secours occurred in 2010, and Dr. Hansen left Bon Secours in 2014 to start a new practice. Other providers have since joined the group, the Center for Complex Pain Care, which is still focused on providing the best possible care to patients with difficult pain disorders."
"Treating chronic pain has always been hard, and in today’s regulatory climate, it has become even more difficult. Using a concierge model of care, this practice is able to devote the time and effort needed to address complicated chronic pain problems."
