Jimmy Carter Undergoes Operation to Reduce Swelling in His Brain

HeadlineNov 12, 2019

Former President Jimmy Carter is scheduled to undergo an operation today to relieve pressure on his brain. The 95-year-old was hospitalized Monday evening at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia. The Carter Center said the procedure was needed due to “bleeding due to his recent falls.” Carter suffered a “minor pelvic fracture” from a fall last month and broke his hip in a separate fall in May. Until a few weeks ago, he was still building houses with Habitat for Humanity.
