NY Congressman Brandon Williams Hospitalized With Heart Surgery ‘Complication’
Upstate New York Republican Congressman Brandon Williams is hospitalized for a second day following a 'complication' from his recent artery bypass surgery.
A statement on the 22nd District Representative's official Facebook page said the issue "requires immediate treatment and will prevent the Congressman from fulfilling his House duties for the remainder of the week."
Reports say Williams underwent a robotic heart surgery to perform the bypass procedure on July 17.
In respect for Williams and his family, the statement on social media said no further comment would be given at this time. However, his communications director said Williams, 56, will continue receiving treatment from 'experts at George Washington University Hospital.'
"We fully expect Rep. Williams to continue on his path to recovery," the statement read.
