First Lady Melania Trump in Hospital Recovering From Kidney Surgery
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. Mrs. Trump is at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and will likely remain there for the duration of the week.
Breitbart News asked the first lady’s Communications Director Stephanie Grisham to confirm reports that “President Trump spoke with his wife this morning and that the President is going to Walter Reed medical center to visit her shortly.” She did, replying “yes.”
Embolization procedures are performed to cut off blood supply to a tumor, aneurysm or abnormal growth, typically growing in the kidney or liver, to shrink the foreign mass.
