DCMC Showcases Surgical Services with Demonstration

To showcase Door County Medical Center’s (DCMC) state-of-the-art surgical services, members of the community are invited to watch a robotic-assisted surgery demonstration on Oct. 4. Skilled surgeons will also provide free hernia screenings to any interested members of the public.

This past winter, DCMC welcomed its newest member to the surgical services team, da Vinci Surgical System. The da Vinci Surgical System is an advanced, robotic computer that uses 3-D technologies to assist surgeons with an operation. The system can be used across a spectrum of general surgical procedures.

DCMC’s Dr. Michael St. Jean, M.D., F.A.C.S. points out that robotic-assisted surgery results in “decreased post-op pain. It gets the patient back to normal faster.”

The surgery demonstration is scheduled for 2-6 pm, with hernia screenings performed 2-5:45 pm, educational presentations by Dr. St. Jean in the cardiac rehab area at 3 pm and 5:15 pm. For more information call 920.746.1060.
