Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Doing Fine After Being Seen At UCLA Medical Center

Two weeks ago, Los Angeles Lakers legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar underwent quadruple coronary bypass surgery at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. While Abdul-Jabbar is expected to make a full recovery, he experienced dizziness yesterday and was hospitalized.

After numerous tests, Abdul-Jabbar’s surgeon and cardiologist did not find any complications. Here is the full press release via Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center:

This morning, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was experiencing some dizziness following his April 16 quadruple bypass surgery. He contacted his physicians who told him to come to the emergency department at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. He was evaluated by his surgeon and cardiologist. After a battery of tests, they found no complications. Abdul-Jabbar was discharged from the emergency department and is back home continuing his recovery. His surgeon, Dr. Richard Shemin, said it is not uncommon for patients to experience some symptoms that require ruling out serious problems following major heart surgery. Shemin added that Abdul-Jabbar did the right thing by coming in to see his doctors.

There will be no media interviews or additional information from Abdul-Jabbar, his physicians or his spokesperson.
