Rep. Jerry McNerney, D-Pleasanton, is recovering from voluntary surgery he underwent this past Friday to repair a wrist tendon.

“It’s not slowing him down, although you can imagine what it’s like to be an elected official who can’t shake hands with his right hand,” spokeswoman Sarah Hersh said today.

Or to be an elected official who looks like he’s constantly pointing at something. Here are some photos from McNerney’s visit earlier today to DaVita Inc.’s Pleasanton Dialysis Center, where he met with patients and caregivers to learn about dialysis and kidney care needs for local residents, including the unique needs of veterans.

“As a member of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, it is my top priority to make sure our veterans have access to quality care,” McNerney said in a news release.
