Schwarzenegger Undergoes Surgery

by | 27 December 2006

Actor and governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger, has undergone surgery to repair his broken leg.

The Republican politician, aged 59, broke his right femur while skiing in Sun Valley in Idaho on December 23rd. He underwent surgery on Boxing Day when screws and cables were used to fix together broken fragments of bone.

It is possible that the governor will attend his second inauguration ceremony next month on crutches.

Dr. Kevin Ehrhart, the orthopaedic surgeon who performed the procedure said: "He is now fully coherent, and I have cleared him to resume his duties as governor."

He added that Mr Schwarzenegger would be back, saying: "I expect the governor to fully recover. The governor is not in a cast and will use crutches to walk while his leg heals."

Star of the Terminator films, Mr Schwarzenegger has had a few bumps and bruises over the years including two motorcycle accidents. In January, a motorcycle accident caused the governor to attend hospital for 15 stitches to his lip and last December, he was under observation for a rapid heartbeat.

The True Lies actor also underwent surgery for a replacement heart valve made of his own tissue in 1997.
