Singer/songwriter Rosanne Cash has undergone successful brain surgery to correct a benign condition, and is expected to make a complete recovery.

The 52-year-old musician, the eldest of late country icon Johnny Cash's five children, is resting at her New York home, two weeks after her operation at New York-Presbyterian Hospital, said a statement from Manhattan Records.

She was diagnosed with a Type 1 Chiari malformation, a rare structural defect that affects the part of the brain that controls balance.

The EMI Group-owned label said Cash would return to the recording studio in early 2008 before hitting the road in the spring and finishing a book scheduled for publication in early 2009.
