Rep. Sensenbrenner has hip replacement surgery

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — U.S. Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner’s office says the longtime congressman had hip replacement surgery.

The Wisconsin Republican’s office said the surgery Thursday at Mt. Vernon Hospital in Alexandria, Virginia, was a success but he will be recuperating and in rehab for “several weeks.”

Sensenbrenner is 75 and has been in Congress since 1979.

Sensenbrenner fell while attending a community fair in Butler, Wisconsin, six years ago. His office says his hip was surgically repaired then, but it was only a temporary fix and after the conditioned worsened recently he went in for a full replacement.

Sensenbrenner’s district is in southeast Wisconsin encompassing areas immediately to the northwest of Milwaukee.
