Ron Jeremy Alert, Still Recovering

LOS ANGELES—Legendary adult performer Ron Jeremy is conscious and recovering at Cedars-Sinai following heart surgery.

Ron's team tweeted a picture of him in the hospital with a message from the actor: ""Thank you ALL for the concern & well wishes. I'm doing very well thanks to modern technology!"

According to, his condition is steadily improving. He will remain in the hospital, however, for at least a few weeks while doctors monitor his condition.

The AVN Hall of Famer, who has appeared in more than 2,000 movies throughout his 30-plus years career, drove himself to Cedars-Sinai last Tuesday after experiencing chest pains and underwent two surgeries the next day for a heart aneurysm. He was intubated and unconscious for several days, but is showing signs of improvement now.

“He still isn’t able to receive cards or care packages, but your prayers and well wishes are greatly appreciated,” his management team said.

The 59-year-old, known as “The Hedgehog,” is one of the most recognizable adult performers ever, and his health crisis has received worldwide attention.

AVN will update with his progress as details become available.
