NEW YORK Robin Williams was recovering at the Cleveland Clinic after heart surgery that his doctors deemed successful, his publicists said Monday.
The 57-year-old actor had an operation to replace an aortic valve on March 13, publicists Mara Buxbaum and Chris Kanarick said. He was expected to make a complete recovery in the next eight weeks.
"His heart is strong and he will have normal heart function in the coming weeks with no limitations on what he'll be able to do," said Dr. A. Marc Gillinov, a cardiothoracic surgeon at the Cleveland Clinic. "A couple of hours after surgery, he was entertaining the medical team and making us all laugh."

I was thinking about him the other day. Glad there is an update.
Be a tough guy Robin...I’ve had 3 of those operations...you’ll be fine!! lol
I appreciate a man who puts his money where his mouth is.
p.s. I had surgery on a Wed. and was at the Oklahoma bomb site and the Oklahoma zoo the following Monday. I didn’t want to miss anything!! :)
As bad as I hate living in the Cleveland area - we do have some excellent hospitals here.
Best wishes to Robin!
I guess it’s a good thing he got this done before he had socialized health insurance.
Robin Williams was born in Chicago.
GOOD MORNING, IRAQ
Robin Williams on a USO tour .. Christmas .. 2003.
When loony libs are sick, they deserve a break...and our prayers. Plus Williams is a USO guy and likes the troops.
Why didn’t he use canada’s socialized health care for the surgery if socialized medicine is so dandy?
He didn't go to Canada? or Britain?
But they have National Health care!
Oh. He actually want to survive.
I had quadruple bypass surgery a year ago had four aneurysm's two on the back side of my heart and two on the front..I was blessed they found this..and blessed we still have the medical system we have today..
Perhaps because he is not Canadian?
Actions speak louder than words sometimes. ;-)
He hasn’t been shy to go where the action is, that’s for sure.
It was a rhetorical question and yes, I know he’s an American commie.
I think he spent time in the Bay Area from 16 onward and honed his skills there and at Julliard briefly. Chicago has a long comedy tradition tho too.
