Dr. Rohit Bhatheja makes headlines with his lifesaving treatment of a local college student. The girl, Elise, felt what she thought was innocuous side pain from a pulled muscle. She instead was suffering from severe pulmonary embolism, a condition that claims the lives of over 25 percent of patients who don’t seek medical treatment.

Dr. Bhatheja treated her using a state-of-the-art therapy that is still undergoing research, and Elise has made an amazing recovery. Without Dr. Bhatheja’s willingness to pioneer the innovative new procedure, Elise might not be here to share her story today. WKMG Local 6 will tell us more about how Elise was diagnosed and treated for this deadly condition this Friday in the next installment of their Surviving and Thriving series.

Be sure to catch Surviving and Thriving when it airs Friday, April 18th at 9pm on WKMG Local 6 to learn more.
