Sunshine Coast ENT Surgeons

About Evolve ENT

Evolve ENT is the collaboration of three QLD based ENT surgeons, Drs David Hogan, Kristy Fraser-Kirk, Daniel Timperley and Ben McArdle. Friends since medical school, the Evolve Team shared a common vision to grow their collective expertise to satisfy the full spectrum of ENT needs on the Sunshine Coast.

In addition to maintaining Fellowship with RACS (the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons) and ASOHNS (Australia’s governing society of ENT surgeons), Evolve surgeons have undertaken higher training in international centres around the world. As a result, Evolve provides ENT care for all general paediatric and adult ENT conditions, advanced Rhinology and anterior Skull base surgery (McArdle), advanced Otology and Hearing Implant surgery (Fraser-Kirk) and Head and Neck and Thyroid surgery (Hogan).

Evolve is fortunate to maintain positive relationships with many of our esteemed local ENT colleagues. Our foundation colleagues have contributed extensive time and expertise in developing the profession on the Coast, and have generously invested support and mentorship during the recent expansion of public ENT services at SCUH. Maintaining a positive, functional network of ENT surgeons enhances our local capacity to learn, share, audit, develop and to plan for the Sunshine Coast’s future healthcare needs.


At Evolve, you can expect patient care that is expert, honest and down-to-earth. However, your surgeon is only one piece of your healthcare puzzle. As a huge amount of ENT care is delivered at the ‘primary care’ level in your family doctor’s office, we are passionate about educating and empowering GPs so they can manage your frontline needs with confidence. We also know that, depending on the nature and complexity of your problem, your ENT surgeon’s best asset may be their ability to advocate for you – to represent you and help you navigate your healthcare journey – in Brisbane and nationally.

Beyond the healthcare of today, Evolve is dedicated to ensuring that tomorrow’s standards of ENT surgery are even higher. We invest passionately in the teaching and mentorship of future ENT surgeons, as well as in the training of our colleagues in nursing, allied health, related medical and associated fields. Evolve’s surgeons invest passionately and with great pride in the patients and staff of the Sunshine Coast University Hospital.

Better Days. Better Nights. Better Lives. 


Beyond expert ENT care, Evolve surgeons ensure you understand your condition, and help you take control of your healthcare journey.
