Robotic Surgery at Door County Medical Center in Sturgeon Bay is marking a successful first year. Dr. Michael St. Jean, who heads the minimally invasive robotic surgery program, says about 200 procedures have been performed since the service began last Fall. Those include hernia operations and acid reflux treatments. Dr. St. Jean says DCMC's program offers a unique option that's making Sturgeon Bay a treatment destination.
Dr. St. Jean says DCMC's robotic surgery center is an advantage to patients in Door and Kewaunee counties, who can get minimally invasive treatment on an out-patient basis.
