(Newser) – Surgery last week on actor Robin Williams’ heart “went extremely well,” doctors said today. The 3½-hour procedure corrected an irregular rhythm and replaced a valve, People reports. “A couple hours after surgery, he was entertaining the medical team and making us all laugh,” said the doctor, who expects Williams “to make a full recovery.”
