St. John’s Physician Practices announces that
Eric Andrew Wieman, MD, will be joining
St. John’s General Surgery, where he will practice with surgeons Michael Rosenberg, MD, and Randy
Kjorstad, MD. All three are certified by the American Board of Surgery.
“Dr. Wieman’s overall surgical expertise, his specialty training,
and his patient-oriented manner are an ideal match for the general surgery
team,” said John Payne, DO, medical director of St. John’s
Physician Practices, the medical group that includes the general surgery
practice. “Having an additional surgeon on staff increases patient
access to services, and aids the medical group in its goal of providing
a continuum of care.”
St. John’s General Surgery offers patients the evaluation and treatment
of hernias, gall stones, breast issues, cancer, and bariatric weight loss,
using minimally invasive surgery when indicated.

the UCC Surgical Society. He completed a general surgery residency at
the University of Missouri Kansas City School of Medicine and a fellowship
in interventional endoscopy/ERCP and pancreaticobiliary surgery at the
University of Louisville School of Medicine. His research experience includes
studies on melanoma, hereditary cancers, shock simulation, and stem cell
Dr. Wieman worked on a cattle ranch in the Bighorn Mountains as a teenager.
