CARDINAL RIGALI HAS KNEE SURGERY

Cardinal Justin Rigali, Archbishop of Philadelphia, underwent successful surgery on his right knee earlier this morning. The Cardinal had a torn meniscus. Dr. David Rubenstein performed the surgery at Lankenau Hospital in Wynnewood, Montgomery County. This was an outpatient, arthroscopic surgery. Cardinal Rigali returned to his residence several hours after the surgery and will work from home during his recovery. The Cardinal will resume his public appointments schedule on October 29, 2006.
