One to watch out for...

This was a terrible experience. Von Gillern uses outdated surgical techniques and does not refer out when necessary. He performed surgery on a normal variant in my hand and completely avoided the ruptured collateral ligament in my 3rd MCP joint. Although he did bill for correcting the collateral ligament which he did not touch. This is evidenced not only by where he made his incision but also by the fact that I had a second surgery by a specialist in Des Moines who confirmed it was untouched. After Von Gillern performed surgery it was clear that my 3rd digit was still grossly misaligned and he tried to explain it away by saying I just had some osteoarthritis. He was evidently unaware of my extensive medical background which makes me believe he probably lies to the majority of his patients when he is unsuccessful in surgery. This man should have his license revoked in my opinion.
