LOS ANGELES  — Zsa Zsa Gabor's right leg was amputated Friday in a life-saving surgery that doctors called successful.

Gabor, who turns 94 on Feb. 6, was being watched carefully, but there were no complications, doctors at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center said after the surgery.

"The surgery today went well, however, she is in frail health so we will continue to monitor her closely," said Dr. David Rigberg, associate professor of vascular surgery.

Gabor, who had an infection in her leg for several months, was hospitalized on Jan. 2 after efforts to save her leg with antibiotics failed.
