Jimmy Carter Experiences ‘No Complications’ During Brain Surgery

Jimmy Carter Experiences ‘No Complications’ During Brain Surgery. On Nov. 12, Former President Jimmy Carter underwent surgery to relieve pressure on his brain. . His procedure took place at the Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia, and occurred with “no complications.”. According to the Carter Center, the pressure was caused by bleeding in his brain, which was likely a result of the two falls he took in October. . Because of Carter’s age, the falls resulted in a subdural hematoma, which is commonly associated with severe head injuries. . A subdural hematoma can cause symptoms that range from headaches and memory loss to seizures and paralysis. . Despite this, Carter has still remained active in recent weeks, attending Sunday school and making public appearances. Carter is currently in the hospital recovering from his surgery and will remain there for “as long as advisable for observation.”
