Ken Phillips Publicity Group issued the following press release regarding Isaac Hanson:
Guitarist Isaac Hanson of the rock group Hanson who was hospitalized following a show in Dallas, TX Tuesday night, underwent successful surgery today at Baylor University Medical Center for a form of pulmonary embolism known as venous thoracic outlet syndrome or “Paget-Schroeder Syndrome.” The disease normally affects athletes whose upper body muscle development constricts the arteries from the heart and causes potentially fatal blood clots in the lungs.
The life-saving surgery was performed by Dr. Bradley Grimsley who was extremely satisfied with the results and expects Isaac to make a full and swift recovery.
Pending doctors final approval, Isaac is due to be released from the hospital tomorrow (Friday) and Hanson’s North American “Walk Tour” in support of their new album of the same name will resume on October 8th in Knoxville, TN.
The band’s agents and promoters are working on rescheduling the canceled dates in Tulsa, St. Louis and Kansas City and further announcements regarding possible make-up dates will be made as soon as possible.
