Jeopardy!’ host Alex Trebek on medical leave after brain surgery to remove blood clots

Longtime "Jeopardy!" host Alex Trebek revealed he underwent brain surgery late past year.

Trebek downplayed the operation as "a slight medical problem".

The show posted a video to its website on Thursday about the incident.

"Surgery was performed", he said "After two days in the hospital I came home and started recovery". The "Jeopardy" host published a video with a statement about his recent surgery. As a result, he developed a complication in his brain called a subdural hematoma, which doctors discovered around mid-December 2017.

Calls came into TV stations as far afield as San Diego, more than 200 miles south of the launch site. To the disappointment of UFO enthusiasts, the object was not an extraterrestrial coming to visit.

Trebek stated, "The prognosis is excellent, and I expect to be back in the studio taping more 'Jeopardy!' programs very, very soon".

Trebek has hosted more than 7,600 episodes of Jeopardy! since he first joined the show in 1984.

No timetable has been announced as to when Trebek will return to the show. Because the show is filmed months in advance, its broadcast schedule won't be affected with one exception: The upcoming College Championship, which was supposed to tape now, will film in March and air in April.
