Gov. Ned Lamont is recovering at home after undergoing hip replacement surgery on Wednesday, according to a statement from his office.

Lamont, 68, had one of his hips replaced last year and Wednesday’s procedure was to replace the other hip. The governor plans to work remotely for the next couple of days as he recuperates at home, Max Reiss, the governor’s director of communications, said in the written statement.

“This morning, Governor Lamont underwent hip replacement surgery at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Stamford and he is currently recovering at home,” Reiss said. “The surgery is very similar to the one he experienced just about one year ago, however, it was on the opposite hip. His medical team says that he is on track for a speedy recovery, and over the next couple of days, he plans to rest at home while working remotely.”
