Jamii St. Julien, MD, MPH, FACS
Dr. St. Julien is a new addition to our surgical team since 2017 and has an unparalleled training background at some of the nation’s top medical institutions. He now specializes in advanced laparoscopy and weight loss surgery here in the St. Petersburg area. Dr. St. Julien was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. He obtained a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Biology at Florida A&M University in 2002. He earned his medical degree from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, where he also obtained a Master’s of Public Health. He completed his general surgery internship and residency at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, and most recently completed a fellowship in advanced minimally invasive and bariatric surgery at the Mayo Clinic. He is a member of the American College of Surgeons, the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons, and the Southeastern Surgical Society, among others. Dr. St. Julien strongly believes that bariatric surgery is just one aspect of a lifestyle change that can and should result in significant, sustained weight loss. This, in turn, results in a much-improved quality of life, health, and overall happiness. He believes in a multidisciplinary approach that individualizes care to each patient while adhering to evidence-based practices and minimally invasive laparoscopic and/or robotic surgical techniques.

Our Procedures

Laparoscopic & Robotic Gastric Bypass

A gastric bypass is a type of surgical procedure that helps patients to lose weight by changing how the stomach and small intestine accommodate food. The da Vinci system facilitates minimally invasive surgery using robotic-assisted surgical arms and a 3D high-definition camera.

Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy

Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is a minimally invasive procedure used to help people lose excess weight by reducing the size of the stomach.

Lap Band Removal

We can perform Lap-Band removal with a revision to another more effective bariatric surgery such as gastric bypass or sleeve.

Revisional Bariatric Surgery

Occasionally problems may arise from prior bariatric weight loss surgeries such as reflux or weight regain. These conditions can often be corrected with revisional weight loss surgery.
