Gov. Dayton returns from Mayo after hip surgery, spends Presidents Day with commissioners

The governor’s hip surgery at the Mayo Clinic last week was deemed successful and he returned home Friday.

Although it’s a holiday for many workers — Presidents Day — Gov. Mark Dayton is meeting with commissioners and his staff today in St. Paul.

The governor spent last week at the Mayo Clinic for hip surgery but left the hospital Friday.

His staff said the surgery was successful and he’s able to work in a brace, but his travel will be restricted for up to three months.
