Throughout history, with the developing of high technology, surgeries ______.

a. Have evolved b. Have been evolved

Which one is correct? I feel like the verb evolve cannot be transitive in this context so it should be active

You can say either!

Both sound fluent, so just use whichever sounds best in the context to you.

Examples:

Throughout history, with the developing of high technology, surgeries have evolved to be a common practice

Throughout history, with the developing of high technology, surgeries have been evolved in a way that makes them more effective
