Fallin Undergoes Hip Surgery, 'Doing Well' (Jul 26, 2011)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin is resting after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on her left hip.

Communications director Alex Weintz (WENTS) says the governor had outpatient surgery Tuesday at an Oklahoma City hospital. Weintz says the governor "is doing well."

Weintz says the 56-year-old Fallin returned to the Governor's Mansion Tuesday afternoon, and will work from there for the remainder of the week.

He says Fallin plans to return to the governor's office at the state Capitol next week. Several weeks of physical therapy also are planned.

Weintz says Fallin has experienced pain in her hip in recent months.

The website of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons says arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that orthopedic surgeons use to examine, diagnose and treat problems inside a joint.
