Berle Undergoes Dental Surgery

Comedian Milton Berle had dental surgery at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and was in good shape, a spokesman said. Berle, 81, underwent surgery on Tuesday and was expected to be released sometime today, spokesman Ron Wise said. "He felt he wanted to stay overnight," Wise said. Berle, know to millions as "Mr. Television" as the star of his own variety show during the medium's Golden Age, had quadruple-bypass heart surgery in 1985.
