Houston, TX - Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords will undergo surgery today at a Houston hospital to replace a piece of her skull that was removed after she was shot in Tucson last January.

Doctors at the hospital plan to use a plastic implant to replace the segment of Gifford's skull.

The surgery should last between one to two hours and a quick recovery is expected.

Giffords' doctors are scheduled to discuss her progress at a news conference tomorrow.
