FRANKFORT — Gov. Steve Beshear underwent minor surgery Thursday to remove scar tissue that developed from last November's procedure to repair a detached retina, his office said Friday in a statement.

The surgery was short and successful, and Beshear expects no interruptions to his regular schedule, the statement said.
