US musician Stephen Stills, who had surgery for prostate cancer on his 63rd birthday, was expected to return home today, his wife said.

Stills, who found fame with Crosby, Stills and Nash, had the operation yesterday in Los Angeles, Kristen Stills said in a statement.

“Stephen’s procedure went remarkably well and he couldn’t be better,” she said. “The pain will be minimal.”

The two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame artist is scheduled to attend the Sundance Film Festival in Utah for the January 25 world premiere of 'CSNY/Déjà vu', the statement said.

The movie was shot during the 2006 'Freedom Of Speech' tour by Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young.

Stills is scheduled for a North American solo tour this spring in support of his recent 'Just Roll Tape' album.
