CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

President George W. Bush underwent successful knee surgery in Chicago over the weekend.

The former president underwent surgery for a partial replacement of his left knee on Saturday morning at Rush University Medial Center, Bush's spokesman Freddy Ford confirmed in a statement.

This is Bush's second partial knee replacement this year. Bush had the same procedure performed on his right knee over Memorial Day weekend.

"President and Mrs. Bush are on their way back to Dallas this morning," Ford said. "He's looking forward to getting back on his mountain bike in a few weeks."

Both surgeries were outpatient procedures performed by Dr. Richard Berger at Rush's Midwest Orthopaedics.
