“We have completed a series of tests and evaluations, and in consultation with the team physicians, we are confident that Damar can be safely discharged to continue his rehabilitation at home and with the Bills,” said Jamie Nadler, MD.
Hamlin, 24, suffered a cardiac arrest after a tackle in the game against the Bengals Jan. 2, and had to be resuscitated on the field before being taken by ambulance to the hospital.
Hamlin was released from UC Medical Center on Jan. 9 and transferred to Buffalo General/Gates Vascular in downtown Buffalo to continue his recovery.
On Tuesday, Kaleida Health provided an update saying that Hamlin is going through tests and evaluations. The goal of Buffalo General Medical Center/Gates Vascular Institute is to pinpoint a possible cause for Hamlin’s collapse and treat any diagnosis that could be found. The medical center is also working on a plan for his recovery and eventual discharge as well as rehabilitation.
Hamlin was joined in the hospital by his parents and younger brother.
