A news release sent by the court says Judge Mills had several stents inserted during surgical procedures at the Baptist Memorial Hospital North Mississippi in Oxford.
He was scheduled to be released from the hospital today.
The release says additional surgery may be required as doctors monitor the best way to treat his condition.
Court proceedings assigned to him for the next three weeks have been continued.
Mills says he plans to return to the bench as soon as he is cleared by doctors to do so.
The release says Judge Mills and his family thank the many friends and attorneys who have expressed concern.
