First lady Melania Trump hospitalized for treatment of benign kidney condition

Melania Trump undergoes kidney surgery

The Slovenia-born first lady underwent an embolisation procedure on Tuesday morning to treat what aides called a "benign" kidney condition.

Taking to Twitter he wrote: "Heading over to Walter Reed Medical Center to see our great First Lady, Melania". "That's because she is the first lady", said Dr. Jeffrey Cadeddu, a professor of urology and radiology at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas.

The president spoke with the first lady before the procedure and with a doctor at Walter Reed after the procedure, a White House official also told NPR. Two doctors who specialize in kidney health speculated that the procedure may have been to treat angiomyolipoma, a benign kidney tumor, detailed the Sacramento Bee.

Thankfully, Melania's procedure was completed successfully without complications, and many are wishing her a speedy recovery. This is done by placing blocking agents in a blood vessel - think gelfoarm, metallic coils or PVA granules.

President Donald Trump remained in the White House during Melania Trump's surgery.

"The potential problems from these benign tumors if they get big enough - (are) pain, bleeding, blood in the urine", Rogers said.

U.S. media reported that her husband, Donald Trump, is due to visit her in hospital later in the day.

The president had no public appearances scheduled for Monday and declined to answer shouted questions from reporters about how his wife was feeling as he departed the White House for Walter Reed.

President Donald Trump has arrived at a military hospital near Washington to visit his wife, Melania, who underwent a procedure to treat a benign kidney condition.

Mrs. Trump is likely to remain at Walter Reed for the rest of the week. "The First Lady looks forward to a full recovery so she can continue her work on behalf of children everywhere".

Last week, the first lady launched her "Be Best" initiative to help children be their best selves.
