About This Provider

As a medical student, Dr. Evans initially thought he might go into orthopedics as a specialty. But, thanks to his mentors and teachers in Peoria, he instead found a passion for plastic surgery and the way it could change patients' lives. He was particularly interested in hand and upper extremity surgery, so he completed an additional fellowship after residency.

"My favorite part of practicing medicine is having patients come in with an issue and helping them restore function and get back to work. You really get to see the direct results of your work and that's very rewarding," says Dr. Evans.

With his fellowship training, Dr. Evans is distinctly qualified to treat patients with hand and upper extremity trauma or to perform elective surgeries, such as for carpal tunnel syndrome. When he's not working, he enjoys golfing, playing baseball and softball and riding his motorcycle.
