Statement From The Office Of Senator Patrick Leahy

This morning, Senator Leahy will undergo surgery to repair a broken hip that he suffered as a result from a fall at his house in McLean, Virginia, Wednesday night.

Having been born blind in one eye, the Senator has had a lifelong struggle with reduced depth perception.  He has taken some remarkable dingers over the years but this one finally caught up with him.  

His doctors determined that the best course of action would be to have surgery to repair his hip as soon as possible.  He is expected to make a full recovery and begin a healthy course of physical therapy immediately.
