Get Well Wishes for Congressman Jim Moran

DVC00110

November 24, 2009 – Congressman Jim Moran, Northern Virginia Democrat, had successful total knee replacement surgery on both knees today at the Anderson Orthopedic Clinic located at Inova Mount Vernon Hospital. The surgery was conducted by specialist Dr. C. Anderson Engh.

According to the Attending Physician’s Office in the U.S. Capitol, Rep. Moran will become only the second member to have both knees replaced during the same surgery. The first was Rep. Sonny Montgomery, a long time Democratic member from Mississippi who served from 1967 to 1997.
Congressman Moran’s recovery period is expected to last 6-8 weeks. He will be recovering at home on bed rest during this time. Given the difficult recovery associated with a double knee replacement, he is not expected to be able make votes on the floor of the House of Representatives during the month of December.

In lieu of flowers or gifts, the Congressman has requested well-wishers make donations to their local food pantry or homeless shelter.
