UCLA statement on Zsa Zsa Gabor’s condition following surgery on Friday, Jan. 14:
 
"Ms. Gabor needed an amputation above her knee due to poor circulation and a large ulcerated area on her right leg," said Dr. David Rigberg, associate professor of vascular surgery at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. "After consulting with her husband, Frédéric Prinz von Anhalt, we felt this was the best medical course of action. The surgery today went well, however, she is in frail health so we will continue to monitor her closely."
 
No further information is available and the doctor is unavailable for interviews.
