Bush 41 Undergoes "Very Minor" Back Surgery

By  | 

Though it is being described as "very minor," Former President George Bush did go under the knife Tuesday.

The 41st president had elective back surgery according to his office and Bush Library officials. It took place at Houston's Methodist Hospital.

The 83-year-old is recovering extremely well according to officials.

Mr. Bush had been having a nagging pain that was bothering him when he was walking, which is why he chose the surgery.

It's been a little less than a year since the president's last major procedure, his second hip replacement.
