Veteran TV actress Mary Tyler Moore is undergoing brain surgery for a benign tumor today
Beloved TV icon Mary Tyler Moore is "recovering nicely" after undergoing surgery to remove a benign tumor on the lining of her brain, according to rep as reported by The Associated Press.
Erica Tarin, a spokesperson for the actress, said Moore will not need additional treatment following the four-hour procedure. She did not indicate specifics on when or where the procedure took place.
According to a previous report in People, Moore and her doctors have been monitoring a benign tumor for several years, and the procedure she is set to have is relatively common.
Earlier today, a plucky Moore made a surprise appearance on the "Rachel Ray Show" - dropping by to see her old pal and former co-star Dick Van Dyke. The appearance was taped on May 5th. Moore and Van Dyke, of course, co-starred on the classic sitcoms "The Dick Van Dyke Show" and "The Mary Tyler Moore Show."
