SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -
Shreveport Mayor Cedric Glover underwent surgery Monday afternoon at CHRISTUS Schumpert St. Mary to repair tendons torn in a fall nearly two weeks ago.
According to a statement released by the Mayor's Office, the procedure took nearly three hours and there were no complications.
The Mayor suffered lacerations and abrasions when he fell October 3 while visiting a local elementary school, and his doctors wanted those injuries to heal before the surgery.
Tests confirmed torn quadriceps tendons in both knees. The quadriceps muscle group runs down from the hip, over the knee, and attaches into the lower leg bone. Surgery was needed to reattach the torn tendons.
"I certainly appreciate all the cards, emails and especially the prayers that folks have been sending my way," Mayor Glover said in the statement released before the surgery. "I'm confident the surgery will go well and I'll begin my rehabilitation as soon as possible so I can get back to something that resembles a normal schedule."
