Former New York State Senate Majority Leader Joe Bruno is recovering from surgery at the Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
Bruno, who is 84, was recently diagnosed with kidney cancer.
A source close to Bruno tells us a significant portion of his kidney was removed.
This is Bruno’s second bout with cancer.
He was previously treated for prostate cancer.
Bruno is scheduled to be re-tried in federal court in December on corruption charges.
At his first trial, he was convicted on two of the seven charges he faced.
Those convictions were later thrown out.
