Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin remains hospitalized, but is in good spirits, at Buffalo General Medical Center/Gates Vascular Institute, a Kaleida Health facility in Buffalo, N.Y.
Today, Hamlin was joined by his parents, Mario and Nina Hamlin along with his younger brother Damir.
Hamlin is going through a series of testing and evaluation today. The world-renowned team of experts at Buffalo General Medical Center/Gates Vascular Institute offer state-of-the-art comprehensive cardiac, neurological, and vascular care services unavailable anywhere else in the region. It is a destination of choice for cardiac and vascular care, neurosciences, advanced orthopedic, spine surgery and more.
The UC Health's University of Cincinnati Medical Center care team is credited with stabilizing Hamlin last week, enough so he could return to Buffalo Monday for further evaluation.
The team at Buffalo General Medical Center/Gates Vascular Institute is now tasked with identifying any possible causes of the event, potentially treat any pathology that may be found, as well as plan for his recovery, discharge and rehabilitation.
Hamlin's care team is being led by Jamie Nadler, MD, critical care physician and Chief Quality Officer at Kaleida Health, and Ken Snyder, MD, PhD, FACS, FAANS, Chief Physician Quality Officer at Kaleida Health and Unaffiliated Neurotrauma consultant for the National Football League Players Association (NFLPA) and the National Football League (NFL).
They have been joined by Chee Kim MD, FACC, director electrophysiology innovation and clinical integration at Gates Vascular Institute and Elad Levy, MD, medical director, neuroendovascular services, Gates Vascular Institute. The Buffalo General Medical Center/Gates Vascular Institute care team is working in conjunction with Thomas White, MD, the Buffalo Bills team internist and Nate Breske, head athletic trainer for the Buffalo Bills.
Out of continued respect for the privacy of the Hamlin family, the hospital does not plan any press conference or announcements regarding Mr. Hamlin at this time. Further, our physicians are politely declining any media and/or interview requests at this time.
Hamlin was admitted Monday to Buffalo General Medical Center/Gates Vascular Institute following his treatment at UC Health's University of Cincinnati Medical Center in Ohio.
On January 2, Hamlin suffered a cardiac arrest on the field during a game against the Cincinnati Bengals, which required immediate resuscitation efforts and subsequent hospitalization and treatment.
