Football legend Pele is doing well after prostate surgery and will be released from a hospital on Saturday, doctors said.
Doctors at the Albert Einstein Hospital said the soccer great has benign hyperplasia — an enlarged prostate — and has no tumors nor cancer.
The three-time World Cup winner had a procedure called a transurethral resection of the prostate this week. The surgery is done to relieve moderate to severe urinary symptoms caused by an enlarged prostate.
Pele, born Edson Arantes do Nascimento, was hospitalized in November at Albert Einstein, where he received kidney dialysis for several days. He was hospitalized for about two weeks.
