KMBC: Man Credits New Procedure at Saint Luke’s Health System for Saving His Legs

A Lee's Summit man is thankful for the doctors at Saint Luke's Health System for saving his legs.

In 2019, David Mann developed a foot infection. His doctors told him both of his legs would need to be amputated, but then Dr. Matthew Bunte, an interventional cardiologist and vascular medicine specialist at Saint Luke's, stepped in.

KMBC talked to Dr. Bunte about the new procedure that helped save David's legs.
