PEORIA, Ill. (WMBD) — One of the first multi-specialty medical clinics to form in downstate Illinois, Springfield Clinic, said its mission is to provide the highest quality health care to the people of central Illinois.

Tyler Evans, MD focuses his practice to hand and Walant surgeries. Walant stands for wide-awake local anesthesia no tourniquet.

“It’s a type of hand surgery you can do in the office,” said Dr. Evans. “There’s a variety of procedures that can be done with this technique, but it’s great because you don’t have to go to the hospital.”

The technique can be used for carpal tunnel, trigger fingers, basic hand fractures, tendon injuries, or arthritis-type surgeries.

Dr. Evan practices at Springfield Clinic Peoria (1001 Main St 300 in Peoria) with affiliations at the Center for Health Ambulatory Surgery Center – Peoria, UnityPoint Health – Proctor, UnityPoint Health – Methodist, and OSF Saint Francis Medical Center – Peoria.
