Cheney is undergoing surgery at The George Washington University Hospital.
(CNN) Former Vice President Dick Cheney is undergoing surgery on his back Thursday, his office announced.

"Former Vice President Cheney went to The George Washington University Hospital this morning for elective surgery to deal with lumbar spinal stenosis. Dr. Anthony Caputy, Chairman of the Department of Neurosurgery, will perform the operation," a spokeswoman said.

Good for him - that kind of thing is often painful for years before it's bad enough to operate on. I wish him a swift and uneventful recovery.
