Ho Back In Hawaii

Don Ho is recuperating at an “undisclosed location” in Honolulu after undergoing an experimental heart procedure in Thailand December 6th.

The Hawaiian singer underwent a treatment in which stem cells from his blood were multiplied and then injected into his heart in hopes of strengthening the organ.

“We’re delighted to say that his health is improving dramatically,” publicist Donna Jung said. Ho is expected to return to his regular gig at the Waikiki Beachcomber, but no date has been announced.

He has been suffering from heart problems for about a year and recently received a pacemaker.
