Mary Tyler Moore to Undergo Brain Surgery

Actress Mary Tyler Moore, 73, is set for brain surgery to remove a meningioma, a benign tumor of the lining tissue of the brain.


"At the recommendation of her neurologist, who has been monitoring this for years, and a neurosurgeon, Mary decided to proceed with this fairly routine procedure," the rep told People.com.

The veteran TV star has kept busy, most recently doing a guest spot opposite her friend and "Mary Tyler Moore" co-star Betty White on the season premiere of "Hot in Cleveland."

On Thursday's "Rachael Ray Show," taped May 5, Moore made a surprise appearance during an interview with her friend and former co-star Dick Van Dyke.
