Bills Medical Staff Excellent Once Again

Recommended Posts

The Bills medical staff has been great for a long time now, but it just affirmed itself again. 

 

On PMT, Will Compton was talking about how he was doing a physical with the Bills last year when the medical staff found a white spot on his brain.  They immediately notified Compton and told him it is concern for his life, forget about just football.

 

He ended up going back to Washington and have them taking care of it due to the insurance.  It turned out to be a cyst, but he sounded very thankful for the Bills finding it.

Good group that doesn’t get NEARLY the credit they should. Dr Bisson is truly incredible.

Kind of the exact opposite if what Trent Williams went through with the Washington Football Team

That's what made Will really nervous.  Happened right around the time that was all going on.

Ok, but 14th best doesn't really sound like "one of the best". Not to knock anything, I just hear locals say that a lot and wonder how true it is.

UB is a huge medical school/campus.  Children's is a great hospital too.  Not to mention Catholic Health and Kaleida have a lot of facilities.

 

Buffalo is saturated with medical in proportion to population

They are really building a great medical center.  Brand new UB medical school.  Brand new Childerns hospital.  Roswell.  A bunch if other good hospitals.

 

The city is making being a medical hub a big part of the fabric of Buffalo.

Rosewell Park is now #14 up from #30 which is a good indicator of progress...even tho John Hopkins is #4 they couldnt help a friend who recently passed at age 34 with 3 kids under age 4...get tested early and spread the word esp when you or someone you know is around age 50....PSA and colonoscopy...please....please...

 

For the 2020-21 ranking, U.S. News & World Report evaluated 899 hospitals that see many complex cancer patients. Hospitals had to treat at least 197 Medicare inpatients in 2016, 2017 and 2018 in order to be eligible for this ranking. For more on the methodology, click here.

Here are the top 10 hospitals named to U.S. News & World Report's 2020-21 Best Hospitals for Cancer list:

1. University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center (Houston)

2. Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (New York City)

3. Mayo Clinic (Rochester, Minn.)

4. Johns Hopkins Hospital (Baltimore)

5. Cleveland Clinic

6. Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women's Cancer Center (Boston)

7. Cedars-Sinai Medical Center (Los Angeles)

8. Northwestern Memorial Hospital (Chicago)

9. Seattle Cancer Care Alliance/University of Washington Medical Center

10. University of California San Francisco Medical Center

Not a debbie downer, I just think sometimes people say both positive and negative things about Buffalo whithout factual basis.

Buffalo has higher than average cancer rates and double the national average on MS. Probably not unrelated:https://buffalonews.com/news/toxic-legacy-s-time-bomb/article_600a70b3-e006-57ed-a199-096a19dede52.html

Why was the Bills staff ordering or looking at imaging of this guy's brain?  And what treatment did he get for it in Washington.  I couldn't find anything about this.

10. University of California San Francisco Medical Center

 

 

Not all of those are designated NCI Comprehensive Cancer Centers or Cancer Centers, which is an extremely difficult designation to get.  Rankings are based on doctors opinions of other doctors and hospitals.  Roswell was known for decades as a Head and Neck caner treatment powerhouse, but it seems that they lost their top surgeon and team some time ago (Jim Kelly's surgeon, he who left Roswell to go to ECMC--of all places!).  Still a solid Cancer Center.  Children's Hospital is fairly new, but not a great reputation and not full service.  Kaleida has some quality problems too.

Lots of cities are. Health care is the biggest employer here in Charlotte as well.

Well, considering that Fifty states have multiple health facilities each... so yes at 14 , it is among the best in the country. 
 

Go Bills!!!

McD upgraded the medical staff when he took over.  It's top notch now.
