Rible recovering from surgery today

Assembly Minority Conference Leader Dave Rible (R-30) today underwent spinal fusion surgery today at Riverview in Red Bank. 

The surgery involved the removal and replacement of existing hardware, including a steel rod, which was inserted during a previous surgery to address multiple herniated discs and nerve damage. A former Wall Township police officer, Rible sustained the injuries when he fell off a cliff while chasing a suspect. 

Rible’s surgery went well and he’s in recovery.
