Coral Springs Mayor Skip Campbell had hip replacement surgery, and according to his doctors, he will need up to six weeks to recover.

Last week, Campbell aggravated a prosthetic hip replacement he had about 20 years ago. On Monday, he had surgery to replace the prosthetic due to the natural breakdown these past 20 years and that surgery was a success.

“Although I am unable to physically attend meetings and events in the near future, I plan to remain fully-engaged in city operations via phone and email,” he said in a statement to Coral Springs Talk.

Campbell wanted to thank residents, business owners and city employees who learned of his surgery, and reached out to express their well-wishes on his speedy recovery.

Elected as mayor in 2014, then reelected in 2016, Campbell served as a member of the Florida Senate from 1996 to 2006. He is a board-certified civil trial lawyer and partner at Krupnick Campbell and a proud University of Florida Gator.

“As your mayor, I recognize the importance of transparency and wanted to explain my absence.  I look forward to returning to the daïs very soon.”
