Larry King Recovering from Carotid Endarterectomy
Larry King successfully underwent surgery on Friday to remove plaque from the carotid arteries in the neck. The procedure is called a carotid endarterectomy.
"Larry is doing great and he is excited to be back on the air Monday night with an interview with Senator Barack Obama as we mark the fourth anniversary of the Iraq war," the network says in a statement.
In 1987, King had a heart attack and underwent a quintuple bypass. Since then, he has given more than $4.5 million to cardiac patients in need of financial aid through the Larry King Cardiac Foundation.
