DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Governor Terry Branstad will take a week off to close out 2014 after having surgery.

 Branstad will undergo an outpatient, routine procedure on Monday to treat varicose veins in his legs.

The expected recovery time is about a week.  During that time it's recommended he stay off his feet and elevate his legs.

While he will be off for recovery, Branstad will still take business calls and meetings, if he is needed.
