Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-Paterson) is expected to make a full recovery following a bypass surgery to remove blockages found in the 83-year-old congressman’s arteries.

“I’m so thrilled to hear that my good friend, Bill Pascrell, is resting and doing well after successful bypass,” U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez (D-North Bergen) said. “Thankfully, he was in the very capable hands of the doctors and staff at St. Joe’s in Paterson, whom I know are taking such good care of him.  I wish Bill a speedy recovery.”

The congressman St. Joseph’s University Medical Center in Paterson after feeling heartburn and indigestion following his return to New Jersey from Washington last week.

Doctors at St. Joseph’s discovered arterial blockages in the course of routine testing, and Pascrell underwent surgery to remove the blockages on Sunday.

“Rep. Pascrell’s doctors expect the congressman to make a complete recovery from his surgical procedure. Congressman Pascrell is feeling better and is eager to get back to work,” his office said in a statement.
