  • Surgical expertise from around the globe… to our community.

    At Evansville Surgical Associates, we understand the stress involved when you or a loved one requires surgery. That stress is increased when you’ve been told that you must leave the Tri-State community and go to Indianapolis, Louisville or Nashville to have your procedure. 

    In most cases, though, travel out of town is not necessary.

    As our community has grown, so have we. With 23 surgeons in 9 different offices, covering a wide range of specialties, we have gathered an impressive array of surgical expertise from around the United States, and around the globe.

  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm

    An Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm occurs when a section of the aorta in the abdomen weakens and bulges at the site of an aneurysm, similar to a weak spot that bulges on a worn bicycle tire. Aneurysms can develop slowly over time, often with no symptoms. If an aneurysm expands too quickly, it may leak or rupture and cause life-threatening internal bleeding.

  • Varicose Veins

    Varicose veins are enlarged veins that are visible through the skin and may appear as blue or purple twisted, knot-like cords. Varicose veins can occur anywhere in the body, but are more commonly found on the legs where they often cause a feeling of heaviness, burning or pain.
