Matthew Perry Underwent Surgery to Repair Gastrointestinal Perforation

 

Matthew Perry is on the mend after undergoing surgery.

 

“Matthew Perry recently underwent surgery in a Los Angeles hospital to repair a gastrointestinal perforation,” a rep for the actor said in a statement to PEOPLE on Tuesday.

 

“He is grateful for the concern and asks for continued privacy as he heals,” the statement reads.

 

A gastrointestinal perforation “occurs when a hole forms all the way through the stomach, large bowel, or small intestine. It can be due to a number of different diseases, including appendicitis and diverticulitis. It can also be the result of trauma, such as a knife wound or gunshot wound,” according to Healthline.com.
