The Australian surgeon traveled to Bridgeport to study under Dr. Adam Hansen

September 30—BRIDGEPORT — For more than 10 years, Dr. Adam J. Hansen has seen many people live for years in pain.

A thoracic surgeon at the WVU Medicine Heart & Vascular Institute in Bridgeport, Hansen has gained worldwide fame for helping people recover from what’s called slipped rib syndrome.

Hansen says the pain caused by the syndrome can “turn a person’s life upside down,” so he went on to develop a surgical technique that is now used by surgeons in the UK, Denmark and now Australia.

Since performing his first procedure in early 2019, Hansen has operated on patients from across the U.S.
