According to a health bulletin on Friday night, KCR had undergone the operation of left total hip replacement.


"The surgery was performed by our team of senior orthopaedic surgeons, anaesthesiologists, and nurses. He has tolerated the surgery well and was stable hemodynamically throughout the procedure," it said.
