TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (Legal Newsline) – Attorney General Bill McCollum had surgery Tuesday morning to improve the flow of blood to his heart.
Doctors at Florida Hospital in Orlando implanted a stent into an artery to correct “a singular partial arterial blockage,” according to a statement by Press Secretary Sandi Copes.
The blockage was discovered last week during what Copes described as “a routine screening.” The stent implantation was decided upon following additional testing earlier this week.
McCollum, 63, has no history of heart trouble, Copes said.
The attorney general is expected to be released from the hospital on Wednesday and to return to work “very soon,” she said.
