UPDATE: Sam Humphrey is on the road to recovery.
"Sam is an incredibly resilient and strong individual. His surgery went well and he is currently recovering and being monitored to make sure that there are no complications," his family said in a statement to E! News Friday morning. "He will require further treatment and rehabilitation over the coming weeks but he is under the care of some of the best physicians in the world at Cedars Sinai. His family thank everyone for their love, support, prayer and positive vibes. We will update everyone should there be any further developments."
Sam Humphrey is hoping to feel better very soon.
After delighting fans with his role as Tom Thumb in The Greatest Showman, the actor is undergoing a serious procedure in Los Angeles.
"Sam has been suffering from complications due to Crohn's disease, which is exasperated by Sam's skeletal dysplasia and size," Sam's family said in a statement to E! News. "He is currently under the care of some of the best doctors in the world at Cedars Sinai and is undergoing high-risk corrective surgery. His family and friends are with him and they ask for privacy while Sam is treated and recovers."
"They welcome everyone's prayers and support at this time," the statement continued.
