Peres Goes Home After Hernia Surgery

Israeli President Shimon Peres returned home from the hospital after hernia surgery.

Peres returned home Sunday after undergoing the surgery on May 11 at the Sheba Medical Center in Tel Hashomer. Doctors said the surgery was successful. The hernia was discovered in Peres’ abdomen during his state visit last week to Canada. He did not cut his trip short due to the hernia.

He was visited in the hospital Saturday night by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Peres, 88, on Sunday thanked the staff at Sheba for “their professional and dedicated care.”

Peres had been scheduled to present the prestigious Wolf Prizes on Sunday evening, but will likely have to remain at home for the awards ceremony.
