President Conant will undergo a second major operation for acute diverticulitis at Massachusetts General Hospital sometime in October.
Conant spent this summer at his home in New Hampshire's White Mountains convalescing from the first operation of June 23.
The second operation will take place sometime after his last meeting with the Board of Overseers on October 9. After this, he will rest for several days and then return to his work on a restricted basis.
The operation is for an infection of a blind tube which enters the intestinal tract. The treatment is similar to that of appendicitis except that two operations instead of one are required and a longer period of convalescence is necessary. After the second operation the patient is usually completely recovered.
