Jamestown Regional Medical Center is proud to welcome Dr. Robert McMillan to the Jamestown medical community.
The general surgeon joined Sanford Health – Jamestown in the summer of 2019. Dr. McMillan performs surgery at JRMC.
Dr. McMillan completed medical school at Creighton University School of Medicine in Omaha, Neb; and his residency at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, Wis.
Dr. McMillan is certified in general surgery through the American Board of Surgery. He also has Basic Life Support, Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support, Advanced Trauma Life Support and Fundamentals of Laparoscopic and Endoscopic Surgery certifications.
“Initially I wanted to be a family practice physician, like my father (Dr. William McMillan). But, in medical school, I found that I loved the operating room,” said Dr. McMillan. “It’s gratifying to fix a problem and see immediate results in the operating room while working alongside a talented anesthesia and surgical team for a good outcome.”
Originally from Jamestown, Dr. McMillan provides broad-based surgical care to the Jamestown community. Endocrine to foregut, colon to cesarean sections, colonoscopies to upper endoscopies and everything in between, Dr. McMillan offers a wide scope of skills, complementing the current surgery team.
“JRMC is excited to be part of Dr. McMillan’s journey,” shared JRMC Chief Nursing Officer Trisha Jungels. “I had the privilege to work closely with him as our organization prepared for his arrival. Dr. McMillan is extremely kind and caring, and is going to take great care of our community. Please join me as we welcome home Dr. McMillan and his family.”
After spending time throughout the Midwest for education, Dr. McMillan is excited to get back to his roots with his family and practice as a general surgeon in a rural area.
“I love that we have an excellent critical access hospital right here in Jamestown where high-quality surgical care can be delivered,” said Dr. McMillan. “In today’s world of hyper-specialization, I wanted to find a practice where I could perform a broad scope of procedures and operations. That can really only be found in a rural community.”
