"Associate Justice Stephen Breyer underwent reverse shoulder replacement surgery for a proximal humerus fracture this morning at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital," court spokeswoman Kathleen Arberg was quoted by ABC News as saying.
"The fracture was sustained in his right shoulder in a fall from his bicycle on Friday afternoon, April 26, near the Korean War Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. He was taken by ambulance to the hospital following his injury."
Breyer was resting comfortably after the successful surgery and is expected to be discharged early next week, Arberg said.
