According to the Saudi royal court,Crown Prince Sultan bin Abdul Aziz underwent a successful operation in New York on Monday for an undisclosed health problem after arriving in New York three days ago.

The Saudi Embassy nor the Saudi court gave any details of the medical condition of Prince Sultan, who is thought to be 84, but said “The treatment received by his highness has been successful, thank God,” the court said in a statement carried by the state news agency SPA. It said the operation “continues the medical tests and treatment” for the prince.

Prince Sultan had an intestinal cyst removed in Saudi Arabia in 2005 and he visited the Swiss city of Geneva in April 2008 for what were described as routine tests.
Saudis have closely followed the news of his health problem and his six-week stay afterwards in Agadir, Morocco to recuperate from the first stage of treatment.
