The physicians of Midlands Clinic, P.C. are pleased to expand expert patient services to residents of Siouxland and the surrounding area with the addition of General Surgeon, Dr. J.D. Welander. As of January 8, Dr. Welander will be accepting patients at Midlands Clinic in the Dakota Dunes. He will offer a full range of the latest general surgery services including, but not limited to, breast Cancer Surgery, colorectal surgery, gallbladder surgery, hernia surgery, laparoscopic surgery, minimally invasive surgery, robotic surgery, and trauma surgery.

Dr. Welander received his Doctorate at Creighton University School of Medicine and completed his residency at the Iowa Methodist Hospital. In addition to his education, he has published research in the Journal of Trauma and Acute Care Surgery.

Dr. Welander explained, “I love my job. There is nothing more fulfilling than meeting a patient with a problem that I can help resolve, and to perform that operation in a minimally invasive manner if possible. Offering good outcomes, state-of-the-art care and a compassionate ear are important qualities to have as a surgeon. I am excited to be joining a team of surgeons at Midlands already demonstrating these high standards.”

“We are so pleased to have Dr. Welander join our team,” said Stacy Harmelink, administrator for Midlands Clinic “Dr. Welander brings a wealth of talent to the office. I believe he will be an asset to the community.”
