Former President Jimmy Carter Undergoes Brain Surgery
The 95-year-old was scheduled to undergo surgery Tuesday morning to relieve pressure on his brain after suffering several falls.
Former President Jimmy Carter has been hospitalized and underwent a procedure to relieve pressure on his brain “caused by bleeding due to his recent falls," the Carter Center said in a statement.
The former president's operation took place Tuesday morning at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, and Carter was admitted to the hospital Monday evening, according to the center.
“President Carter is resting comfortably, and his wife, Rosalynn, is with him,” the center said. The organization later said the president was recovering well after the procedure.
Carter, who is the oldest living former U.S. president, turned 95 on Oct. 1.
Carter had been injured after falling in his home in late October and suffering a minor pelvic fracture.
Earlier that month, he had to receive stitches on his eyebrow when he hit his head after falling on his ranch. In May, he underwent surgery after breaking his hip in another fall.
In 2015, the former president declared he was cancer-free after battling melanoma.
