Michael St. Jean M.D.

Door County Medical Center is pleased to announce Dr. Michael St. Jean, M.D., F.A.C.S. will be providing General Surgery at Door County Medical Center beginning March 6th, 2018.

Dr. St. Jean received his undergraduate degree from Marquette University. While there, he joined the Army ROTC, and then completed medical school at the Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences. He completed his surgical residency training at the Dwight David Eisenhower Army Medical Center and following his training, served at several Army MEDDACs and the William Beaumont Army Medical Center. He completed a Minimally Invasive/Bariatric Surgery Fellowship at Geisinger Medical Center in 2005 and concluded his military career at Womack Army Medical Center, serving as residency director, Director of Medical Education and Chief, Department of Surgery. Following numerous combat deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan between 2006 and 2011, he retired from active service. Prior to joining DCMC, Dr. St. Jean practiced Minimally Invasive and Bariatric Surgery at Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor, Maine where he served as Surgeon Medical Director, overseeing all perioperative surgical services.

Dr. St. Jean’s practice includes all aspects of Minimally Invasive Surgery, endoscopy and robotic surgery. In particular, he is looking forward to bringing his years of experience with advanced robotic surgery to DCMC. “We’ll be using the da Vinci Xi Surgical System,” says Dr. St. Jean. “It’s really the latest advance in robotic-assisted surgery and in minimally invasive procedures.” The da Vinci Xi makes it possible for surgeons to perform complex operations through small incisions—operations, which would otherwise require large incisions and long recuperation times. Additionally, Dr. St. Jean points out that robotic-assisted surgery results in “decreased post-op pain. It gets the patient back to normal faster. Now that DCMC has one of these machines, Door County residents won’t have to travel to a major city for one of these procedures—we’re bringing the technological forefront to Door County.”

Dr. St. Jean is also looking forward to moving closer to his son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter, who live in Wisconsin. “My wife is from Northern Illinois,” he adds, “so in a sense, this move is about getting back to family.”
