Feinstein Will Undergo Knee Surgery

Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) “says she’ll undergo a knee-replacement operation on Wednesday in San Francisco,” the AP reports.

Feinstein, 77, says she won’t be able to travel for about three weeks following the surgery. She plans to work from home during that time and to keep close tabs on issues of importance to constituents.

The senator says she’s needed the operation for a while. The operation is routinely undertaken to relieve pain and restore function. In recent months, she could occasionally be seen walking gingerly, particularly when it involved stairways around the Capitol and her Senate offices.

POLITICO notes that she’ll likely “be back just in time for the Senate to return from its two-week long scheduled recess Jan. 24.”
