WASHINGTON (CNN) - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is expected to make a full recovery following surgery to repair her fractured right elbow, her doctors said Friday.
Clinton was at home recovering. She fractured her elbow Wednesday in a fall, a State Department spokeswoman said.
"At 7:30 a.m. this morning, Secretary Clinton underwent a two-hour surgery to successfully repair her fractured right elbow," said attorney and Chief-of-Staff Cheryl Mills.
"Her doctors at the George Washington University Hospital have advised her that they expect her to make a full recovery without lasting damage to her arm," Mills said in a statement.
Clinton fell Wednesday afternoon at the State Department on her way to the White House and was taken to George Washington University Hospital. She was treated and released, with the understanding that she would have surgery as soon as possible.
After the operation, Clinton returned to her Washington home, where she will remain with her family through the weekend, Mills said.
Decisions about her schedule will be made soon, she added.
"She, President Clinton and Chelsea are grateful for the many prayers and messages of good will they have received these past few days," Mills said.
