Read Dr. Cleland’s Personal Statement Below
I decided to become a surgeon during medical school as I fell in love with working with my hands and my mind. My choice was solidified during residency at Madigan Army Medical Center where I continued to train and learn to diagnose and formulate a plan to make someone better, whether that be a surgical or non-surgical approach. I strive to provide my patients with the most up-to-date medical care available, including robotic surgery. I take care to explain the diagnosis, options for care and inform them of the risks, benefits and expected postoperative course to allow them to make an informed decision on their healthcare. I enjoy spending time with my family and I am an avid runner, participating in half marathon and 10k races.
