Dayton to undergo procedure at Mayo for injured hip


After suffering a muscle tear this summer, Gov. Mark Dayton will receive an injection at Mayo Clinic in Rochester to treat his injured hip, Minnesota Public Radio reported.

Dayton, 66, will head to Mayo on Wednesday for the one-hour procedure designed to accelerate the healing process. The governor's office says "platelet rich plasma" will be injected into Dayton's damaged hip muscle while he's under local anesthesia.

In June, the governor was hurrying down stairs to get to a DFL beanbag tournament when he hurt himself.

Dayton will recover at the governor's mansion where he'll have limited mobility for about two weeks, the Star Tribune said.

Dayton underwent back surgery at Mayo last December.
