NAOMI CAMPBELL HEALTH SCARE

Model Naomi Campbell was hospitalized in Brazil for the removal of a small cyst, her rep confirmed Tuesday.

"Naomi Campbell was admitted to the hospital last night to have a small cyst removed," Jeff Raymond, Campbell's publicist, said in a statement. "Following the successful procedure, she is now resting and is looking forward to getting back to work. She would like to thank the doctors who have kindly looked after her."

Gynecologist Jose Aristodemo Pinotti told the Agencia Estado news service that Cambell had emergency laparoscopic abdominal surgery. "I cannot reveal what Naomi had, nor how serious her condition was, but I can say I operated on her yesterday and that she is completely cured," Pinotti said.

Sirio Libanes Hospital said Campbell was admitted Sunday night and that she was also being cared for by David Uip, one of Brazil's leading experts in the treatment of infectious diseases.
