Dr. Schilperoort came to Prescott in 1997, joining Prescott's first board certified surgeon, Dr. Robert Bricker. When Dr. Bricker retired in 2001, Dr. Schilperoort purchased the practice, moving to a new spacious office at the corner of Willow Creek and Black Drive. In 2010 Dr. Schilperoort moved to a more central location within the Quad Cities after building an office near Tri-City Surgery Center off of 89A in the Centerpointe West development. Dr Schilperoort is board certified in General Surgery and is a Fellow of hte American College of Surgeons (FACS). Dr. Schilperoort's interest in surgery began when at age 17, he spent a year in Africa working with his friend and mentor, general surgeon Dr. William A. Johnson. A few years after Christian Medical and Dental Association designated him "Servant of the Year," Dr. Johnson was honored in 2007 with the President's Heritage Award for his lifetime achievements. After deciding to pursue a career in surgery, Dr. Schilperoort was named as a freshman President's Scholar at San Jose State University. Dr. Schilperoort transferred to UC Davis where he graduated summa cum laude with a degree in biochemistry. Dr. Schilperoort stayed at UC Davis to complete his medical degree in 1985, and during his fourth year of medical school he returned for three months to work at the hospital in Kenya where his interest in surgery first began. Internship was accomplished at San Bernardino County Medical Center, and four years of surgical residency were performed at San Joaquin General Hospital in Stockton, California, UC Davis Med Center in Sacramento, and Scenic General Hospital in Modesto. All four of these county hospitals provided Dr. Schilperoort with extensive hands-on training. During his final year of training Dr. Schilperoort served as chief resident at the county hospitals in both Stockton and Modesto. After completing his surgical residency, Dr. Schilperoort spent seven years in Portland, Oregon where he was in a group practice, East Portland Surgical Clinic, with four other surgeons. These surgeons encouraged volunteer work, and during his time in Oregon, Dr. Schilperoort and his family were able to spend three months in Kenya and two months in Ecuador helping out in mission hospitals. With the retirement of the East Portland Surgical Clinic founding surgeon and with two other surgeons leaving the practice, Dr. Schilperoort agreed to join Dr. Bricker in Prescott when Dr. Bricker called to offer Dr. Schilperoort a position. Dr. Schilperoort developed an interest in varicose veins after a San Jose, CA company, VNUS, developed a way to treat incompetent veins with radiofrequency ablation, rather than with vein stripping. Dr. Schilperoort also has a special interest in minimally invasive galbladder surgery, as well as GI endosocopy, thyroid, breast and hernia surgery. In 2006, with several other local physicians, Dr. Schilperoort built Tri-City Surgery Center, a state-of-the-art outpatient surgery center, where he currently serves as Chairman of the Board.
