As a child, Dr. Bland watched his mother become a breast cancer survivor with the help of her surgeon. This experience served to guide the decision to dedicate his career to the field of general surgery and to devote his practice to achieving outcomes that offer lasting success.
Holding the philosophy that each patient should be a partner in the development of a plan of care, Dr. Bland believes that collaborative discussions promote focused resolutions. While supporting patient autonomy, his goals are to provide guidance, answers, and remedies. From diagnosis to recovery, he aims to approach each step with clinical acumen, sensitivity, and compassion.
As a rule, Dr. Bland strives to use minimally invasive techniques whenever indicated. These "laparosopic" procedures use small holes instead of large incisions which typically means less pain and carring for patients. He has special interest in procedures to correct acid reflux (GERD) and the management of Barrett's Esophagus cause by GERD.
In his free time, Dr. Bland enjoys hiking, painting in water color, and landscape and wildlife photography.
