Fox News’ Neil Cavuto had successful open heart surgery on Monday.

The procedure was done at a New York City hospital and Cavuto, who has been off the air since May 31, came through it with “flying colors,” TV Newser reported.

“Neil Cavuto had open heart surgery yesterday and came through it with flying colors,” a Fox News spokesperson said Tuesday.

“Knowing Neil, he’ll be back as soon as he can, but he is slated to return to hosting his three programs on Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network later this year. Everyone here is wishing him a speedy recovery.”

Cavuto is no stranger to health problems, having previously battled cancer and currently suffers from multiple sclerosis, which was diagnosed in 1997.

“Having had cancer right before my MS diagnosis, I can honestly say MS is worse,” he told TVNewser in a 2007 interview. “There’s no endgame here, no cure here, no concoction of chemotherapy or radiation that could make it all go away here.”

“So I take steroids, and weekly injections, and I exercise my legs a great deal,” Cavuto continued. “A big and common fear with this disease is that eventually you lose use of your legs. In fact, my neurologist is surprised I haven’t already.”

Godspeed and good luck with your recover, Mr. Cavuto!
