Lieutenant Governor Pence makes quick recovery  


Frankfort, KY:  Lieutenant Governor Steve Pence returned to work in Frankfort today after undergoing hip replacement surgery on July 31st at Jewish Hospital in Louisville.  Pence is expected to make a full recovery.


“I am anxious to get back to work on a full-time basis for the people of Kentucky,” said Lieutenant Governor Pence.  “I want to thank Dr. Arthur Malkani for performing a successful surgery.  I want to also thank everyone for their kind words, thoughts and prayers during my recovery.”


Pence broke his right leg in a skiing accident in 1982.  The residual from that injury worsened over the past year, requiring the surgery.
