Rod Carew Recovering Well After Surgery

      1 Comment on Rod Carew Recovering Well After Surgery

Hall of Famer Rod Carew had successful heart transplant surgery on Friday and is recovering nicely. The 18-time All-Star with the Minnesota Twins and California Angels was 15 months removed from a heart attack, which he suffered near his Southern California home. During that time Carew, 71, was on a surgically implanted left ventricular assist device that was removed before undergoing the 13 hour procedure at Cedar-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. He also received a new kidney to increase his chances of a full recovery. After the surgery, the seven-time batting champion received many well-wishes from the baseball community.

We at LA Angels Insider also wish Rod a full recovery as well!
