NEW YORK, March 10 (UPI) -- U.S. television actress Mariska Hargitay has undergone another operation to treat complications from the collapsed lung she suffered in January, NBC said.

"She is feeling better and should be back in a couple of weeks," a representative for the network told E! News about the 45-year-old star of "Law & Order: SVU."

Hargitay was hospitalized last week after complaining of chest pains. Her publicist said at the time the hospitalization was related to her previous condition.

EW.com said that even though Hargitay will be resting for the foreseeable future, she is expected to miss starring in only one episode of her show.
