Robin Williams Doing Well After Heart Surgery

Some good news!

Robin Williams has successfully undergone heart surgery, after having his aortic valve replaced, and is recovering at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio.

The comedian had to postpone a bunch of dates on his "Weapons of Destruction" tour, but now it seems like, with a little rest, Robin will be back splitting our sides in no time. His doctor released this statement on the funny man's condition:

"Mr. Williams' operation went extremely well and we expect him to make a full recovery. The 3 1/2 hour heart surgery was conducted to replace his aortic valve, repair his mitral valve, and correct his irregular heart beat.

His heart is strong and he will have a normal heart function in the coming weeks with no limitations on what he'll be able to do.

A couple of hours after surgery, he was entertaining the medical team and making us laugh."

Speedy recovery!
