Dr. Tillquist performed a lap band to vertical sleeve revision surgery on my sister. She has had to have 4 additional surgeries to try to save her life. She experienced an esophagus tear, bowel perforation, leaks, sepsis, and other severe complications, and has been hospitalized near death for over one month. Not sure she will recover, and if so, to what extent. This was supposed to be an overnight hospital stay. RUN!! Do not let this man operate on you, PLEASE

Horrible, stay away!!! Hernia surgery for my mom, he said he put mesh in and repaired old mesh. He deserves 0 stars. Spent 10 days on ventilator after surgery because she received pmemomea in surgery. After 14 days got out of hospital and hernia was still there. He didn't fix a thing hernia still there going to specialist to have componate separation done. Don't let that man touch you!!

My husband had elective umbilical hernia surgery approx. five years ago. This supposedly simple surgery resulted in a blockage of the intestines. My husband spent 2 weeks in the hospital. Home one night and had a stroke. Just had a consult with another surgeon today who confirmed that the umbilical hernia has returned. Find another Dr.
