Before the surgery, Kerry was to have participated by telephone in an international gathering in Paris to discuss how to combat the Islamic States.

Kerry suffered the injury in a bike accident Sunday, when he struck a curb and fell on a regular Tour de France route located southeast of Geneva. He returned to Boston Monday for the surgery.

Kerry had planned to travel to Madrid on Sunday for meetings with Spain’s king and prime minister, and then spend two days in Paris for the meeting on the Islamic State.
