Dr. Gaurav Aggarwala, Cardiologist and Circulatory Health Specialist, says what his patients want most of all is to have their joy back. He states that his patients want to have the freedom of movement and comfort with the security that whatever circulatory issues they might be having will not result in an aggressive amputation.
Veteran, Michael Seibert, who served in the United States Marine Corp for more than 22 years as a Mastery Gunnery Sergeant, shared his experience of this specific dilemma.
“I was told I was going to have my leg amputated right under my knee,” Seibert said. “Dr. Aggarwala was very firm that this wasn’t what I needed. He not only saved my life, but the quality of my life without having to endure an aggressive amputation.”
What Dr. Aggarwala did to heal Seibert was a Peripheral Angiogram and a Revascularization procedure. In his practice, Dr. Aggarwala also treats Peripheral Arterial Disease, Vein Disease including the treatment of Varicose Veins, Blood Clots in the legs, Heart Disease, Heart Stents, Pacemakers and Defibrillators.
“Some doctors are cutters and some are healers. Dr. Aggarwala is a healer.” – United States Marine Corp Veteran, Michael Seibert
