George W. Bush has knee replacement surgery
Former President George W. Bush is back at home in Dallas, following partial knee replacement surgery Saturday in Chicago.
Bush spokesman Freddy Ford told CNN that the former president “had a successful partial knee replacement Saturday and came back to Dallas Monday.”
Ford added that it was not a new injury and that Bush was “up walking around and even went up and down a flight of stairs just a couple hours after the procedure.”
Bush, 67, remains active and regularly rides his bike. Earlier this month he led a physically demanding bike ride at his ranch near Crawford, Texas, to honor military members wounded in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Last August, the former president had a stent placed in his heart after a blockage was discovered in an artery.
