Jimmy Carter, 90, underwent an elective procedure at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia to remove a small mass from his liver.



A representative for the politician’s The Carter Center Charity insists that the former president is recovering well, saying in a statement, “His operation proceeded without issues, and the prognosis is excellent for a full recovery.”


Although the details of his condition were not revealed, the surgery news comes after Carter cut a trip short to Guyana in May 2015 because of health concerns.
