Delhi [India], Apr 5 (ANI): The Rolling Stones frontman Michael Philip Jagger has successfully undergone, what is being described as a "minimally invasive" heart valve replacement procedure, and is reportedly resting in an unspecified New York City hospital. 
According to Billboard, Jagger was given a transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR). Through this procedure, doctors were able to repair the heart valve using a catheter that accesses a major artery without opening the chest.
This kind of surgery will now allow Jagger to recover much faster as compared to a more conventional and invasive procedure. Assuming there are no post-surgery complications, the singer could be released from the hospital within a few days.
The 75-year-old singer, recently disappointed his fans, when he had to cancel his US tour leading to his heart surgery. The singer tweeted: “I am so sorry to all our fans in America and Canada with tickets. I really hate letting you down like this. I’m devastated for having to postpone the tour but I will be working hard to be back on stage as soon as I can. Once again huge apologies to everyone.”
The Stones postponed their scheduled 'No Filter' tour in order to give the 75-year-old singer time to recover. Rescheduled dates have not yet been announced, although Billboard noted that the shows are now expected to take place starting in July, with details arriving "in the coming weeks.
"The fans of the Mick are now eagerly waiting for his comeback after the successful heart surgery so that they can see him perform once again in front of them live. (ANI)
