Dayton aide: Governor's surgery went well; he's resting comfortably

Gov. Mark Dayton's hip surgery this morning at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester went well, an aide reports.

"The Governor's Surgery went well. He's resting comfortably," tweeted Bob Hume, the deputy chief of staff.

The plan for the surgery, his office had said:

The procedure will reattach the major hip tendons to the bone around the hip joint. Several tests have revealed that these tendons have become detached from the bone, and the muscle shows early signs of disuse atrophy. According to Mayo, surgery is the most effective option to help with pain, prevent further muscle atrophy, and restore functionality and mobility.
