Daniels recovering from surgery

November 4, 2011

Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels returned home Friday morning after undergoing successful surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee. Dr. Sandy Kunkel, an Indianapolis surgeon who performed the governor’s rotator cuff surgery earlier this year, also performed the knee surgery. “Forty years of running has finally caused some wear and tear.” Daniels said in a prepared statement. “I’m told I should be back on my feet within a few days.”
