Meet The Team
Dr. Arthur Hansen and Dr. Lori Lane
Dr. Arthur Hansen and Dr. Lori Lane started practice in 1994 with a dream of providing the highest level of podiatric medicine and surgery in Palm Beach County. With a philosophy of always putting the patient first, that dream has now become LA Podiatry Group, LLC.
LA Podiatry Group is now a five physician practice with two offices, privileges at seven area hospitals, three wound care centers, and multiple skilled nursing facilities. Approaching each patient as a ‘whole person’ allows the Doctors to consider all aspects of the patient’s life when developing and recommending treatment plans. Consideration of each patient’s family life, job, obligations, and passions allows the Doctors to provide comprehensive treatment plans with the least disruptions into daily lives.
Drs. Hansen and Lane are married with three sons. Many of their patients have witnessed the growth of their family as well as their practice just as Dr. Hansen and Dr. Lane they witnessed many of the ups and downs of their patient’s lives. They recognize the trust placed in them by patients and value it deeply. The patients they have the pleasure of knowing and treating are thought of as extended family and they always look forward to seeing them.
Both Dr. Hansen and Dr. Lane very much want you to receive the highest level of podiatric medical and surgical care available in our area. It is this premise that remains at the foundation of all decisions made concerning the growth of LA Podiatry Group, including the selection of physicians and staff members. Drs. Hansen and Lane encourage your input and opinions on the practice and make every effort to address your concerns. Dr. Hansen completed a surgical residency in New York City while Dr. Lane trained locally at Wellington Regional Medical Center. Both are graduates of Barry University School of Podiatric Medicine.
