Regis Philbin Is to Undergo Another Surgery


Regis Philbin


The host of 'Live with Regis and Kelly' will comeback to the operation room to remove a debilitating blood clot that formed after his hip replacement operation.

Veteran U.S. TV presenter Regis Philbin is to undergo his second surgery in six months, to remove a debilitating blood clot that formed after his hip replacement operation. The 78-year-old host of "Live with Regis and Kelly" underwent the operation in December 2009 and was off the air for several weeks.

He's suffered from limited mobility ever since due to the formation of a clot in his leg; and Philbin will be off the air again on Tuesday, May 18 to have it removed. He explains, "Ever since I got my hip replacement the other leg has acted up. If I walk more than three blocks, all of a sudden I feel that pain."

"One of the things you've got to do when you get a new hip is get up and walk, but I can't walk because of the clot. So I had a little sound check; we're going to do (the procedure) on Tuesday." It's not the first set of health scares for Philbin - he underwent triple-bypass heart surgery in March 2007, and returned to his program six weeks later.
