YOUNG HARRIS, GA (WALB) - Former Georgia Governor Zell Miller is recovering after fracturing his right hip and right shoulder.
Governor Miller, who turns 84 next week, was at a Young Harris College basketball game on Wednesday when he fell.
He underwent hip replacement surgery on Thursday.
His grandson Bryan Miller released a statement saying he, "underwent a successful surgery to fix his hip without having a hip-replacement. Doctors are happy with his progress and believe Governor Miller will make a full recovery."
Miller served two terms as governor during the 1990s. In 2000 he was appointed to the U.S. Senate in which he served until 2005.
