The office of Rep. Paul Kanjorski (D-Pa.) announced that the 12-term Congressman underwent heart bypass surgery at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. The operation to bypass blockages in three blood vessels surrounding his heart was routinely scheduled and was not the result of a heart attack, according to a statement released by Kanjorski's office. There were no complications, according to the surgeon who performed the operation, and Kanjorski is expected to make a full recovery from the previously scheduled surgery. The lawmaker was out of intensive care on Tuesday March 20 and is expected to spend about a week recovering at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. He's expected to return to Washington, D.C. in mid-April and undergo cardiac rehabilitation at the National Naval Medical Center.

Kanjorski, who appeared two years ago at the PIA Federal Legislative Summit, chairs the House Financial Services Subcommittee on Capital Markets, Insurance and Government Sponsored Enterprises.
