On Monday, the Center had announced that the former president had been hospitalized ahead of the Tuesday procedure.
The pressure was triggered by bleeding in the brain caused by recent falls, and Carter was admitted to Emory University Hospital on Monday evening with his wife Rosalynn Carter by his side.
Through the Center, the former president and first lady thanked the public for the well wishes they’ve received.
Last month, Carter was hospitalized with a minor pelvic fracture after falling in his Georgia home. The 95-year-old fell on Oct. 6, just days after his birthday, and required stitches above his left brow.
In 2015, Carter announced that doctors had discovered a form of melanoma that spread to his brain.
“I just thought I had a few weeks left, but I was surprisingly at ease,” Carter said at a news conference that August. “I’ve had an exciting and adventurous and gratifying existence.”
He received his first radiation treatment at 90. Four months later, he was cancer free.
Carter, the 39th president, has lived longer than any other former president in U.S. history.
