Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Today, Representative Steven Horsford (NV-4) underwent a successful cardiac surgical procedure. During a recent routine annual physical, Representative Horsford was advised that he needed non-elective surgery to address a hereditary condition.

The Congressman and his family feel fortunate that modern diagnostics and preventative medical care were able to identify the condition and effectively treat it.  Representative Horsford’s doctors expect a full recovery and indicate, that after a few weeks of medically mandated recovery, he will be back to 100%.

The Congressman appreciates the concern and prayers of his constituents and colleagues and looks forward to returning to work shortly. While he is out on medical leave, Representative Horsford will be regularly briefed on Congressional actions and his district and DC staff will be fully available to serve his constituents.

From this experience, Representative Horsford and his loved ones are encouraging all families to learn more about heart disease and to take steps to prevent and treat it. To learn more, contact the American Heart Association at
