Roger S. Hansen, MD

“I chose to become a Radiation Oncologist because I could not only help people during a scary and vulnerable time in their lives, but also utilize powerful and ever changing technology to do so. I love working with cutting edge cancer treatments, like brachytherapy, to deliver the best possible outcomes with the least possible side effects. I feel honored to be entrusted by my patients to do this most important work.”

Dr. Hansen is a native of Salt Lake City. He enjoys spending time with family, boating, running and reading.
