It was during his internship that Dr. McCluskey was inspired to drastically change his career path. His mother underwent a mastectomy for breast cancer with reconstructive breast surgery. The reconstruction played a huge role in her recovery from this devastating diagnosis.

Dr. McCluskey then finished a five year residency in General Surgery. As Chief Resident his breast reconstruction research was published and he presented this research at local and national meetings. He was selected to enter the highly competitive Plastic Surgery residency at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. In Dallas he trained alongside world-renowned leaders and innovators in the field of cosmetic plastic and reconstructive surgery.
