AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) - Texas Gov. Rick Perry is scheduled to have surgery on Friday to repair his right clavicle, which did not heal properly after a bicycle accident in 2009, the governor's office said on Thursday.
The 90-minute outpatient procedure in Austin involves a three-inch incision and the placement of a contoured plate.
Perry, the longest-serving governor in Texas history, last month dropped out of the race for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination.
