Dayton released a statement saying, "Anyone, who has observed my walking in recent months, has seen that I have difficulties with my leg strength and, occasionally, with my balance.  My doctor believes that this procedure will help with both conditions.  I have the utmost confidence in him and the other tremendous people, who will take care of me at Mayo.  After the surgery, I will be in constant touch with my Commissioners and staff and fully able to carry out my responsibilities as Governor, as I have immediately after previous treatments there."

Dayton is expected to remain at Mayo Clinic for several days.
