Surgery Planned for TB Patient

The Atlanta, Ga., attorney with a drug-resistant form of tuberculosis, will undergo surgery to remove infected lung tissue - this, from hospital officials in Colorado, where Andrew Speaker is quarantined.

Officials said Speaker’s infected area is relatively small and that he’s an excellent candidate for surgery.

Speaker sparked an international scare because of his TB, after he traveled on an international flight for his wedding.

The surgery is planned for sometime next month.
