Get Well Soon
TV legend Mary Tyler Moore has elected to undergo surgery to remove a benign tumor in her brain, her rep revealed to People on Thursday. “At the recommendation of her neurologist, who has been monitoring this for years, and a neurosurgeon, Mary decided to proceed with this fairly routine procedure," the publicist for the 73-year-old star of the classic sitcom The Mary Tyler Moore Show told the magazine. The surgery will remove the tumor (called a meningioma) from the lining tissue of Moore’s brain.
