Romanian President Traian Basescu was well on Tuesday after he suffered a successful surgical intervention for hernia on Monday night. International news agencies quoted Reinhard Krepler, the Austrian doctor who led the surgical team at the Vienna clinic where the Romanian head of state underwent the surgery, who said Basescu was full of energy and capable of keeping his duties.

Krepler said Basescu was suffering of a peculiar form of displaced hernia which was touching several nerves. He said the 55-year old Romanian head of state would only be able to make a few steps by the end of the week and and would need to follow a recovery program.

Romanian Presidency spokeswoman Adriana Saftoiu had said earlier on Tuesday that the surgical intervention developed normally and lasted 2 hours and 45minutes.

The costs of the surgery will be covered by the Basescu family.

According to Saftoiu, there is no need for a replacement for Basescu during the post-op period as his hospital room was full of the necessary equipment to allow him be in touch with the country.

Basescu opted to undergo surgery in the Austrian clinic, the biggest in Europe, because he wanted to prevent political disputes by remaining hospitalized in a Bucharest hospital and because he was not pleased with the conditions there.
