Page Six recently reported that the 75-year-old had a stent placed into his heart to treat blockage and weakened arteries. A source shared, “You can be back at work within weeks.”
Another source told Billboard that Jagger had a transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), which is a minimally invasive procedure where doctors are able to repair the heart valve with the help of a catheter that accesses a major artery.
His reps declined to elaborate on the specifics of his heart procedure, but noted, “Mick Jagger has successfully undergone treatment. He is doing very well and is expected to make a full recovery."
Mick, who was monitored closely, tweeted, “Thank you everyone for all your messages of support, I'm feeling much better now and on the mend - and also a huge thank you to all the hospital staff for doing a superb job.”
