Isaac Hanson of pop group Hanson undergoes surgery in Dallas after chest, shoulder pain

A member of the pop group Hanson underwent surgery to remove a blood clot in his lungs after suffering chest and shoulder pain following a concert this week, the band's publicist said.
Isaac Hanson, 26, was diagnosed with venous thoracic outlet syndrome, said spokesman Ken Phillips. Also known as Paget-Schroetter Syndrome, the potentially fatal ailment occurs when a blood clot forms in a deep arm or shoulder vein.
Dr. Bradley Grimsley, Hanson's surgeon, said he expected the guitarist to make a full and swift recovery, Phillips said in a news release Thursday.
Phillips said Hanson has had similar problems in the past, but not to this extent. Hanson was taken to Baylor University Medical Center Tuesday night after a show at the House of Blues.
Hanson and his doctor were to discuss the surgery at a news conference Friday. Phillips said Hanson may be released from the hospital then.
Hanson canceled some shows in Oklahoma and Missouri but expects to resume its tour Oct. 8 in Knoxville, Tennessee.
The group is best known for their 1997 hit single, "MMMBop."
