First Lady Melania Trump Hospitalized After Treatment For Kidney Condition

Melania Trump undergoes kidney surgery

In a statement, she said Trump underwent an embolization procedure on Monday morning to treat a benign kidney condition.

She underwent the surgery at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Centre in Bethesda on Monday, New York Post reported. Trump let everyone know via Twitter that it was a "Successful procedure, she is in good spirits".

Vice President Mike Pence described the procedure as "long-planned".

Two urologists with no personal knowledge of Mrs Trump's condition told The Associated Press the most likely explanation for the procedure was a kind of non-cancerous kidney tumour called an angiomyolipoma, which isn't common but tends to occur in middle-aged women.

Melania, 48, is expected to remain at Walter Reed medical centre for the next few days.

Finally, around 5 p.m., Trump boarded Marine One to visit his wife, who is expected to stay at the hospital "for the duration of the week".

President Trump spoke with his wife of 13 years before the procedure and talked to the doctor after it was completed, a White House official said.

The White House did not elaborate on the condition of the first lady or on the procedure.


The president said that it was a "successful procedure" and that his wife was "in good spirits". Trump declined to speak with reporters when he arrived at the hospital.

The White House has not provided any additional details on Mrs Trump's condition.

Trump is working on an anti-bullying campaign to teach children to behave with more consideration and kindness on social media.

According to the statement, President Donald Trump remained in the White House during the first lady's surgery.

But Dr. Joseph V. Bonventre, chief of the renal unit at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston said that it was unlikely Mrs. Trump would have a biopsy on this type of tumor and that doctors probably made a decision to conduct the embolization procedure to prevent a benign tumor from growing by starving it of blood, and therefore oxygen.

She was last seen in public on Wednesday at a White House event to honour military mothers and spouses for Mother's Day.

"We can and should be best at educating our children about the importance of a healthy and balanced life", the first lady said during a speech in the Rose Garden last week.
