Dr. Mark Urken, Head and Neck Surgeon from Mount Sinai West, provided the most recent update on Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly’s health.  Kelly is recovering from oral cancer surgery that took place on Wednesday, March 28.

“Mr. Kelly continues to make solid progress in his recovery from extensive surgery for his oral cancer.  He has been moved out of the intensive care unit and made that transition by walking, on his own, from the unit to the inpatient floor where he will continue the next phase of care. He is still several days away from resuming swallowing and taking nutrition by mouth.”

Jill Kelly, Jim’s wife, added the following.

“Dr. Urken and his team continue to provide excellent care and support for Jim and our family. As we navigate through this next phase of healing we will continue to trust God…one day at a time, one prayer at a time. We would appreciate your continued prayer support.”
