Mary Tyler Moore will undergo surgery to remove a benign tumor from her brain.

Mary Tyler Moore is set to have brain surgery to remove a benign tumor, called a meningioma, from the lining tissues of her brain. Undergoing this procedure was Mary’s decision, her rep tells People.

“At the recommendation of her neurologist, who has been monitoring this for years, and a neurosurgeon, Mary decided to proceed with this fairly routine procedure,” says the rep.

The 73-year-old actress is famous for both her role as Laura Petrie on the The Dick Van Dyke Show and her role as Mary Richards on The Mary Tyler Moore Show .

We hope Mary’s surgery goes smoothly and wish her a quick recovery!
