Hall of Famer Hank Aaron had partial left hip replacement surgery Friday after falling on ice earlier in the day.

The Atlanta Braves announced that Dr. Scott Gillogly, who performed the surgery, said the 80-year-old is expected to fully recover and should return to his regular activities in six to eight weeks.

Club president John Schuerholz said in a statement that Aaron is "in our thoughts and prayers and wish him a complete and speedy recovery."

The Braves plan to honor the 40th anniversary of Aaron's record-breaking 715th home run April 8 before their season home opener against the New York Mets.
