Meet Dr. Ransom

Following the completion of his medical and surgical training, Dr. Ransom returned home to California to open a practice in the San Francisco Bay Area, serving patients from San Francisco, Oakland, Marin County, Palo Alto, Silicon Valley, Walnut Creek, the East Bay, and all over Northern California. Dr. Ransom is focused on aesthetic and reconstructive surgery of the face, nose, and neck, as well as non-surgical rejuvenation of the face. He is an attending surgeon at the California Pacific Medical Center, St. Mary’s Medical Center, and St. Francis Memorial Hospital in San Francisco, as well as Marin General Hospital.

Dr. Ransom’s practice includes reconstruction of complex defects of the face and neck resulting from Mohs surgery, cosmetic and functional rhinoplasty (“nose job” surgery or nose reshaping), and all types of surgery for the aging face (facelift, eyelid lift, brow or forehead lift, midface lift, and fat grafting). He uses the latest in minimally invasive and endoscopic techniques. He also provides non-surgical treatments, including injectable soft tissue fillers (Restalyne®, Juvederm®, Radiesse®, and others), neuromodulators (Botox® Cosmetic and Dysport®), and dermabrasion. Finally, Dr. Ransom is skilled with the latest in laser treatments, both ablative and non-ablative.

I can’t speak highly enough in regards to the treatment I received from Dr Evan Ransom. His professionalism, conscientiousness, artistry, attention to detail was so evident, in regards to a hairline fracture I had received on my cheekbone from a hit.

He performs cleft lip and palate surgery with Healing the Children, a non-profit organization focused on international health (see Mission Work and Philanthropy page).
