Former President Bill Clinton, 63, was rushed to a New York hospital Thursday after experiencing chest pains.
"Today President Bill Clinton was admitted to the Columbia Campus of New York Presbyterian Hospital after feeling discomfort in his chest," his spokesperson, Douglas Band, said in a statement. "Following a visit to his cardiologist, he underwent a procedure to place two stents in one of his coronary arteries. President Clinton is in good spirits, and will continue to focus on the work of his Foundation and Haiti's relief and long-term recovery efforts."
Clinton, who underwent coronary bypass surgery in 2004, will reportedly make a full recovery.
Dr. Allan Schwartz, his cardiologist, says Clinton "did not have a heart attack or damage his heart" and that "the procedure went smoothly." Schwartz expected that Clinton would "resume his very active lifestyle."
Clinton's wife, the U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and daughter Chelsea were at the hospital with the former President while he underwent the operation.
