James Shepich, M.D., an experienced board-certified general surgeon, has joined the general surgery team at MyMichigan Health. Dr. Shepich will see patients at the general surgery office in West Branch, located at 2431 S. M-30, Suite 216, as well as at the Wound Treatment Center.

“I treat every patient like a family member, Dr. Shepich said. “I enjoy the day-to-day interaction with my patients and knowing that I can improve someone’s life. I believe in creating a partnership with my patients based on trust, and want to educate them so that they can make informed decisions about their health care.”

Dr. Shepich earned his medical degree from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, and completed a residency in General Surgery at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. He has advanced training in robotic, laparoscopic and open surgery. As a general surgeon, he specializes in procedures to remove gallbladders, repair hernias and treat conditions involving the gastrointestinal tract. He also has a special interest in complex abdominal wall reconstruction.

“I chose the field of general surgery because of the hands-on technical aspect of surgical care and the broad spectrum of conditions that can be treated,” Dr. Shepich said.
