Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner, R-Menomonee Falls, is recovering from orthopaedic hip surgery he received Sunday at Froedtert Hospital.
The congressman is “resting comfortably” at the hospital, according to his office.
Sensenbrenner was greeting constituents in Butler when he tripped and fell after catching his foot on wires.
Sensenbrenner had two fractures – one near his elbow and the other at his hip socket, according to his office.
Sensenbrenner will not attend the Republican National Convention in Tampa because of his injuries.
“He will now embark on recovery and looks forward to returning to his congressional duties as soon as possible," states a news release from his office.
