Doogan Recovering from Successful Surgery

Associated Press

An aide to Alaska State Rep. Mike Doogan says the Anchorage Democrat is recovering from the successful removal of a brain tumor.

Aide Priya Keane says Thursday’s surgery went well and that doctors were able to remove the entire tumor.

Doogan’s office disclosed earlier this week that the 62-year-old lawmaker would undergo the surgery in Seattle after a recent MRI revealed a tumor. Keane says Doogan’s doctors believe his tumor was benign, but pathology reports are pending.

There was no immediate word on when he’d be released from the hospital.
