Profiting From Risky Atherectomies That Can Lead to Amputations

Atherectomy and other procedures for Kelly Hannah’s veins and arteries began in February 2019.

Her records don’t always show which vessel Dr. Mustafa performed the procedure on, just which leg.

That August, Hannah’s baby’s right toe had to be amputated.

In just over a year after her first surgery, she had more than a dozen surgeries.

When she went to the hospital in July 2020, her right leg was purple and cold to the touch. Dr. Judith Lynn, a vascular surgeon at the hospital, said in an interview that she had no choice but to amputate above the knee.
