Gov. Dayton Recovering after Hip Surgery

Created: 02/10/2014 9:44 PM WDIO.com

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton is recovering from a surgical procedure to alleviate pain in his hip.

A Dayton spokesman says Monday's surgery at Rochester's Mayo Clinic went as planned.

Dayton had postponed it last week so he could attend the funeral of Joan Mondale.

Dayton will remain at Mayo for a few days before returning to the governor's residence, where he will work while recuperating.

He will limit travel for up to three months, in part because of a brace he will wear.

It is the 67-year-old governor's third procedure at the Rochester clinic since taking office, following back surgery in December 2012 and a platelet injection last October to help heal a torn hip muscle.
