Faces & Names: George W. Bush undergoes partial knee replacement

Former President George W. Bush should be back on his feet in no time.

Bush, 68, had his left knee partially replaced over the weekend, less than two months after having the same surgery on his right knee.

He already was heading home Monday morning after having the outpatient surgery at Rush University Medical Center’s Midwest

Orthopaedics in Chicago.

Long considered one of the country’s most physically fit presidents, Bush has undergone three surgeries in the past year — one for each knee and one after Dallas doctors found a blockage in one of Bush’s heart arteries and inserted a stent to ease it.
