Vascular Surgery Patient Success Story- Daniel Hutzell
Daniel Hutzell had been a diabetic for over 40 years, which led to a number of complications including circulatory issues. He recently developed severe pain in his left calf, making it impossible for him to walk more than a few blocks. At the time, he was also recovering from a kidney-pancreas transplant that he had 12 months earlier at UMMC.
Daniel decided to seek treatment from Dr. Rajabrata Sarkar, who decided that he needed an angioplasty and stents in his left thigh. After the surgery, Daniel noticed an immediate improvement in his condition. In this two-minute video, Daniel explains how the surgery helped to relieve the pain and greatly improve his quality of life.
