-- Secretary Kerry is said to be in “good condition” following surgery to set a his broken leg at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, according to his spokesman John Kirby.
Kerry suffered a broken femur after he fell of his bike while riding near Geneva inside France on Sunday.
His orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Dennis Burke, released a statement noting that Kerry was awake during the procedure and that he plans to have the secretary walking by tomorrow. Burke is the same doctor who performed Kerry's hip replacement several years ago.
"Secretary Kerry underwent a surgical procedure to repair his broken femur. The procedure was performed under a regional anesthetic and the Secretary was conscious throughout the four-hour operation," Burke said in an emailed statement to the press.
"The procedure was uncomplicated, the fracture was fully repaired, and we plan to get him up walking on Wednesday. I anticipate a short hospitalization, a full and complete recovery, and a return to normal function."
Burke even went on to say that he he doesn't anticipate the recovery will "interfere with his duties as Secretary of State."
"The secretary is absolutely committed to moving with the negotiations, to proceeding with them on the exact same timetable as before his accident," Harf said Monday. "[It's] critical to stress that he is committed to doing so in the same time frame."
