Saudi King’s Surgery A Success
Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud of Saudi Arabia underwent a successful back surgery yesterday at King Abdul Aziz Medical City here to tighten a loose ligament.
Earlier in the day the king arrived at the hospital accompanied by Crown Prince Salman, deputy premier and minister of defense, and other princes.
The king had earlier two back surgeries in New York — one in 2010 for a slipped disk and a blood clot pressing on nerves in his back and a second to stabilize vertebrae in 2011.
The third back surgery was in Riyadh later in 2011.
