On Wednesday, October 23rd, Governor Mark Dayton will undergo a procedure at the Mayo Clinic that is designed to promote healing of the torn muscle in his left hip area, according to a press release. It is called a “Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Injection."

The procedure is expected to last approximately one hour, under local anesthesia. Afterward, he will return by car to the Governor’s Residence. The general post-procedure instructions call for the PRP recipient to refrain from placing any weight on the hip for the first two days, followed by up to two weeks of very limited mobility. As such, Governor Dayton will conduct State business from the Residence during that time, and will not be holding public events.
