Mary Tyler Moore Recovering Well From Brain Surgery

It is being reported that comedy icon Mary Tyler Moore is recovering well after four-hour brain surgery.

The operation was to remove a benign tumor, called a meningioma, on the lining tissue of Moore’s skull.  Her rep told PEOPLE,

“According to her surgeon, she tolerated the procedure without difficulty and is recovering nicely with her husband at her bedside.”

Her rep also said the 73-year-old actress will require no additional treatment and the operation was fairly routine, but necessary:

“At the recommendation of her neurologist, who has been monitoring this for years, and a neurosurgeon, Mary decided to proceed with this fairly routine procedure.”
