Melania Trump undergoes kidney surgery

Published on: 8:19 pm - Tuesday | May 15, 2018

US First lady Melania Trump underwent kidney surgery Monday at a military medical center near Washington, DC, according to a statement from her office.

Trump had been experiencing an issue with her kidney that her office described as benign but requiring medical attention, reports CNN.

“This morning, first lady Melania Trump underwent an embolization procedure to treat a benign kidney condition. The procedure was successful, and there were no complications,” the first lady’s communications director said in a statement.

“Mrs. Trump is at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and will likely remain there for the duration of the week. The first lady looks forward to a full recovery so she can continue her work on behalf of children everywhere,” Grisham wrote.

President Donald Trump remained in the White House during Melania Trump’s surgery. He tweeted just after 5 pm Monday that he was heading to hospital to visit his wife in Marine One.

“Heading over to Walter Reed Medical Center to see our great First Lady, Melania. Successful procedure, she is in good spirits. Thank you to all of the well-wishers!” Trump tweeted.

However, Trump is the first First Lady to have major surgery in the White House since Nancy Reagan had a mastectomy in 1987.
