Mick Jagger’s Heart Surgery Is A Success

Rolling Stones Blues Compilation

According to Billboard, Mick Jagger has undergone his heart valve procedure in New York and is reported to be in great health and on the mend.

Doctors were able to enter Jagger’s heart valve via his femoral artery and are now keeping a watchful eye on the Rolling Stone for any possible complications as a result of the procedure.

The less invasive procedure permits Jagger to avoid major surgery. Doctors are able to repair the heart valve using a catheter that accesses a major artery without opening the chest.

The Stones rescheduled their North American No Filter Tour so that Jagger could have the procedure.

Stereogum reports that Jagger must now rest up for four to five days so that the artery can heal without any major bleeding issues.

He could be up and about in a few days but will need some extra recovery time before making a return to the stage.
