Best Wishes Phil!
On The Mend:
Last week, Phil Lesh underwent surgery at Henry Ford Hospital, a leading center for prostate cancer and urology health.
According to Lesh's Web site, "his surgery went very well, although he did require blood transfusions. He is already out of the hospital and is healing well."
The Henry Ford Hospital is known for its Vattikuti Urology Institute, which developed a robotic surgery method that treats patients from around the world. Lesh's Unbroken Chain Foundation is also asking fans to donate blood this month in honor the bassist. Sources: Bloomberg, WJR, jambands.com, DetroitFreePress
