Dr. Hancey is chief of the division of plastic surgery at Riverton Hospital and has an active plastic surgery practice at Alta View Hospital in Sandy, Utah. He performs all aspects of plastic and reconstructive surgery, including cosmetic surgery. He has previously performed free cleft lip and palate surgeries in conjunction with Operation Smile.

With a special interest in hand surgery and the treatment of skin cancer in all its forms, Dr. Hancey received additional training in skin oncology while at Penn State, learning advanced techniques in melanoma surgery including sentinel lymph node biopsy. Dr. Hancey has published numerous papers and presented at national and international conferences on topics such as skin cancer, wound healing, and congenital malformations. Additionally, Dr. Hancey has over two years of desktop research experience and knowledge with VAC wound treatment modalities.

Dr. Hancey loves the breadth and variety of plastic surgery, and he appreciates the opportunity to improve function, eradicate cancer, and uplift the spirit with his surgical practice.

Patient Testimonials

"Dr. Hancey performed a breast augmentation on me in April 2010. I had lost a lot of weight through diet and exercise, and felt unhappy with that part of my body following the weight loss. He made me feel comfortable throughout the whole process, and helped me regain confidence that I had lost. I am thrilled with my results, and I highly recommend him for his skills, professionalism, and kind personality." -Allison

"The word Melanoma is a very frightening word. January 2013, I was informed that a beauty mark had changed. An aggressive treatment to remove 5/8" of my upper lip was very scary too. Thank you Dr. Jason Hancey for being aggressive! Along with your caring treatment during the whole experience, I am now cancer free and in place of the beauty mark is a small reminder of how fortunate I am." -Lee

​"When I was first diagnosed with melanoma on my cheek, I was not only concerned about my health, but also concerned about being left with a disfiguring scar others would notice instead of my smile. Dr. Hancey spent a lot of time explaining what he would do to not only treat the cancer, but to make my scar as small as possible too. I have never had a Dr. spend as much time and care as Dr. Hancey to make sure I was comfortable, understood my treatment and was happy with my results. After less than 1 year, I am cancer free and my scar looks better than I ever could have imagined - I know people see me and not the scar. Thank you Dr. Hancey & staff for being so kind and caring during a scary time in my life." -Katherine​
