Although a native-born Australian, Dr. Evans moved to Texas as quickly as he could, (at 3 months of age) and grew up in Plano, Texas. After graduating from the University of Texas at Austin with a degree in Electrical Engineering, he attended medical school at the University of Texas Medical Branch – Galveston. Dr. Evans completed his General Surgery residency at Washington University in Saint Louis, and then a fellowship in Trauma/ Critical Care at Emory University. He became board-certified by the American Board of Surgery in 2016 and subsequently joined SGOTW in 2019.
Dr. Evans’ interests include trauma, critical care, and acute care surgery, as well as elective laparoscopic and robotic surgery. His main passion is the complete management of the trauma patient, from initial presentation in the ER, any necessary operative interventions and critical care management, and then on to post-discharge recovery and follow-up. He regularly teaches care of the trauma patient to other healthcare providers in the community as an ATLS instructor. He is also highly interested in acute care surgery, and regularly performs cholecystectomies, appendectomies, intestinal resections, and hernia repairs as part of his practice.
Dr. Evans enjoys running, mountain biking, playing the piano and guitar, scuba diving, and travelling. He is fluent in Spanish and conversational in French. His wife is a practicing OB/GYN, and together they have four dogs and a cat.
