As we’ve celebrated our 50th Anniversary this year, our surgeons and staff at Evansville Surgical Associates have been reflecting on the changes over half-a-century of serving the Tri-State region with compassion, excellence, and state-of-the-art surgical care.
Evansville Surgical Associates began when 3 surgeons came together in 1969 with the simple idea of combining their practices to form one surgical group. As our community has grown, so have we. Now with 21 surgeons and offices in 10 locations, Evansville Surgical Associates is the largest general surgery practice in the Tri-State region. Our vascular affiliate, Vascular Surgical Associates, is also the largest vascular practice in the region.
What this means for those living in the Tri-State region is that, in almost all cases, they or their loved ones don’t need to travel to Indianapolis, Louisville, or Nashville for exceptional medical care. The best surgical and medical care from around the United States is right here, near home.

We also take great pride fulfilling leadership roles both locally and statewide. Many of our surgeons have served as presidents of local hospital staff and as chair of hospital surgery departments. Several surgeons have also served as president of the Indiana Chapter of the American College of Surgeons, the Vanderburgh County Medical Association, and the Indiana State Medical Association.
Just as importantly, our surgeons and our staff members feel passionately about giving back to their communities. We continually lead and participate in health-related events, such as the Evansville Tri-State MORE THAN PINK walk to support those living with metastatic breast cancer and the Colon Screening For Life 5k Run/Walk to raise awareness about colorectal cancer.
Our team is also dedicated to numerous educational initiatives, including Stop The Bleed, texting and driving awareness, and we sponsor scholarships for young people who are interested in a career in nursing or healthcare.
As we look toward the next 50 years, we remain steadfastly committed to delivering the standard of excellence that we’ve built our reputation on over the past 50 years. We will continue to lead the way in the most state-of-the-art advances in surgical procedures to improve the health of those we serve.
