Morgantown, WV (AP) -- U.S. Senator Jay Rockefeller's office says the West Virginia lawmaker has undergone successful surgery to repair a torn tendon in his knee.

Rockefeller's office says the 71-year-old democrat injured his knee during a visit to West Virginia University on Wednesday. He had surgery at the university's hospitals and his office says he's expected to make a full recovery.

Rockefeller is in the midst of a series of public appearances around his state.

He was first elected to the U.S. Senate in 1984.
