Mick Jagger took the stage and performed for the first time since he underwent heart surgery in April, when the Rolling Stones resumed their American tour.

The rocker, 75, was delighted to be back on stage with the band at Soldier Field in Chicago, after a brief absence while recovering from his recent operation.

Mick was at his best again in a monochrome leather jacket with a diamond-shaped print pattern that he combined with skinny black denim jeans.

During the show Mick unzipped his jacket and showed a black and gray striped shirt underneath, layered with a black T-shirt.

Mick brought his characteristic movements to the show as he writhed and toured on stage to prove to his fans that he was feeling well after his recent health problems.

The star resumed the tour alongside his bandmates Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts and the crowds were undoubtedly happy to see the band together again.

Mick's appearance comes after he retired to tour rehearsals for the band's North American shows that were postponed to give the legendary singer time to concentrate on his recovery.

A source told The Sun: & # 39; Mick is delighted to be completely healthy again and feels 100 percent after his surgery. He is his normal shredder and positive self.

& # 39; Doctors are very happy with his progress and were happy to give him a clean health statement.

& # 39; His healthy eating has really helped his recovery and he takes it easy, take a rest, and enjoy the time with his friends and family. The fear of health has reminded him so much that he must continue to take good care of himself. & # 39;

Mick had heart valve replacement surgery with a technique from Professor Alain Cribier.

His surgical method, transcatherter aortic valve replacement or TAVR, allows surgeons to swap a patient's heart valves without resorting to open heart surgery and breaking open their chest. As a result, recovery times are much faster.

The most common – and severe – valve abnormalities, age-related aortic stenosis, occur when the valve becomes narrower and hardens with calcium deposits.

Replacing the valve has historically been done by surgically opening the chest, stopping the heart and placing the patient on a heart and lung blood machine – all of course under general anesthesia.

More than 200,000 such procedures are performed worldwide every year, according to NewHeartValve, in Great Britain.

Cribier & # 39; s technique, performed under local anesthesia, is minimally invasive in comparison and has much shorter recovery times.

A surgeon or cardiologist gains access to the femoral artery with a groin incision to insert a catheter equipped with a replacement valve in a collapsed stent, and a balloon to inflate it.

The new heart valve, once turned off, pushes the old one out of the way and takes over the task of regulating blood flow. & # 39; It has revolutionized patient care in this area & # 39 ;, Montpellier-based cardiologist Stephane Cade told AFP.
