Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Evanson "I am a fellowship trained hand and upper extremity orthopaedic surgeon specializing in injuries and disorders of the hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder. My goal is to listen to the concerns of my patients and establish a treatment plan, either operative or non-operative, that will improve their quality of life and return them to the activities they enjoy. I believe honesty, good communication, and being personable are the strengths of my practice, and I work to develop treatment plans grounded solidly in evidence based medicine. I enjoy taking care of patients of all ages and treating them through the spectrum of therapy, repair, arthroscopy, or replacement of their hand, wrist, elbow, or shoulder."

He did a reverse complete shoulder replacement on my right shoulder. He will be doing my left one in a few months. He also did trigger finger surgery for me.

I finally found a surgeon who is knowledgeable and willing to take time to explain everything to me. I appreciated that he did not want to jump right into surgery, and had other options available for me to try. I will definitely be seeing Dr. Evanson again for any further issues I have!
