Dr. Hansen is the director of surgical oncology for Providence Cancer Center, and medical director of Providence Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic Surgery Program.
"I spent 10 years in surgical training developing the technical skills I would use for a career in minimally-invasive and liver and pancreas surgery. My real education, however, has come in my practice when I have learned to apply these skills individually to patients. Each patient presents a unique set of challenges, both medical and social. Meeting my patients and taking the time to understanding their needs, desires and expectations will ultimately help assure that they get the best outcome possible." - Paul Hansen, M.D.
During the annual American College of Surgeons meeting, Dr. Hansen was voted as the 2015 Commission on Cancer (CoC) State Chair of the Year. He was also elected to the Comission on Cancer for a term of three years.
Dr. Hansen is associated with Providence Cancer Center.
