Former President Jimmy Carter was released from Emory Hospital Wendesday morning after undergoing brain surgery.

Former President Jimmy Carter is out of Emory Hospital following a two week stay for a brain surgery, the Carter Center said in a statement Wednesday.

“Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter was released from Emory University Hospital this morning after a successful surgery and recovery to relieve pressure on his brain caused by a subdural hematoma.”

Carter, who at 95 is the oldest living former president, has suffered from at least three falls this year. In October he fell twice, resulting at least one fracture and a head injury requiring a procedure to relieve pressure on his brain.

Carter was admitted to the hospital on Oct. 21 to treat a fractured pelvis after falling at his home in Plains.
