Dr. Anthony Fauci Undergoes Surgery to Remove Polyp on Vocal Cord

Dr. Anthony Fauci, who has been in the headlines throughout the Coronavirus pandemic due to him being the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, underwent surgery on Thursday (August 20) to remove a polyp on his vocal cord.

The 79-year-old doctor – who has been the face of the White House’s Coronavirus Task Force – is now out of surgery, CNN reports.

Dr Anthony Fauci had an operation today to remove a polyp on his vocal cord. He had general anesthesia and texted me after to let me know he was doing ok. Doctors have advised him to curtail his talking for a while to allow his vocal cords to recover,” CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta tweeted.

We’re wishing Dr. Fauci well! Be sure to see his opening pitch at the MLB opener if you missed it.
