Shas spiritual leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef was discharged to his home in "good condition" from Hadassah University Medical Center in Jerusalem's Ein Kerem on Sunday morning after successful orthopedic surgery last week.

The 93-year-old rabbi had suffered a pelvic fracture a few weeks ago and complained of severe pain. The head of the orthopedics department, Prof. Meir Leibergall, who performed the operation to stabilize his pelvis, said his condition allowed him to be discharged and receive treatment and undergo medical followup at home.
