Dr. Throop saved my life 17 years ago, after another surgeon stapled my intestines into my incision leading to Peritonitis and Sepsis. I was very close to death and on life support when I was life-flighted to Deaconness hospital and had the great luck to be put in his hands. My intestines were shredded and my entire body was poisoned and he saved my life. Because of him, I was able to raise my children.
