The US leg of the Rolling Stones' No Filter tour was set to begin in Miami in just a few weeks, but has since been postponed. Don't fret, his doctor says she will be back on the stage soon.

On Monday, Rolling Stone magazine reported Jagger will undergo heart valve replacement surgery.

The singer will undergo surgery in a NY hospital this week, according to the reports.

Heart valve surgery treats heart valve disease, a condition in which at least one of the four valves that keep blood flowing in the right direction doesn't function properly.

Heart surgeon and U.S. television presenter Dr Mehmet Oz said "about about 10 percent of people at his age have problem with their aortic valve which can lead to chest pain and dizziness". It will obstruct the flow of blood.

Oz said the other valve which also frequently requires surgery is the mitral value, which is further into the heart.

They add: "Whether or not you have heart valve surgery, and whether the operation is a fix or a replacement will depend on many factors".
