Alexandria, VA—Earlier today, Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner (WI-05) underwent a successful hip replacement surgery at Mt. Vernon Hospital. By way of background, six years ago Mr. Sensenbrenner suffered a fall while attending a community fair in Butler, WI. After a surgical repair at that time, he was able to resume his duties. However, doctors advised it was only a temporary fix. The condition of the hip worsened recently, and doctors recommended a full replacement.

Congressman Sensenbrenner will recuperate and rehab for several weeks. He is grateful for all of the well wishes and prayers and looks forward to being back in commission very soon.
