Trust the care of a board-certified surgeon.
Dr. Evans is board-certified and highly experienced in diagnosing and treating a wide variety of health problems. Additionally, Dr. Evans is a doctor of osteopathy. Doctors of osteopathy receive the same basic training as medical doctors, or MDs. Osteopathic physicians, or DOs, however, place their emphasis on preventive healthcare.
Which is why DOs don’t just treat specific illnesses or symptoms. Instead, they practice a whole-person medical approach, regarding your body as integrated whole.
And that is precisely why DOs receive extra medical school training (when compared to MDs) in the musculoskeletal system, which is the interconnected system of nerves, muscles and bones that make up two-thirds of your body’s mass. This extra training provides DOs like Dr. Evans with an even better understanding of the ways an injury or illness in one part of your body can affect another part.
Another big difference between DOs and MDs is that DOs practice osteopathic manipulative treatment, or OMT. With OMT, DOs use their hands to help diagnose injury and illness and to encourage your body’s natural tendency toward good health. And by combining all available medical procedures with OMT, DOs offer their patients the most comprehensive care available in modern medicine today.
