  • Colon Cancer Screening Pledge

    Evansville Surgical Associates’ surgeon Dr. Anthony Kaiser has joined with Deaconess Hospital in their pledge to increase colon cancer screenings to 80% by 2018 as part of National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. 

    Colon cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer death among cancers affecting both men and women in the Tri-State, and is considered a major public health problem.

  • 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.
