Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein said Tuesday she will be undergoing knee surgery. The 77-year-old senator said in a prepared statement that she would have the operation Wednesday.

"For some time now, I have needed knee-replacement surgery, which is scheduled for tomorrow in San Francisco," the statement said. "While I recover, I will not be able to travel for about three weeks. During that time, I will work from home and keep close tabs on issues of importance to California and the nation."

Feinstein chairs the Senate Intelligence Committee, and is a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee.
