First Lady's Kidney Procedure Successful

Howard TerryMay 16, 2018

She and the president have a son together, Barron, 12. Trump will likely remain in the hospital for the duration of the week, the statement said. The ceremony at a police memorial near the Capitol was broadcast live on cable TV.

He says the hospital did an incredible job.

There have been stylish first ladies throughout the history of the U.S., there have even been first ladies who were ex-models, but is Melania Trump (née Knauss) the hottest?

"And I want to thank the incredible doctors. So, Walter Reed. was really fantastic". One reason the hospital may be keeping the first lady for a few days is "the full lesion may not have been completely embolized and sometimes you need it done again".

"Melania Trump underwent an embolisation procedure to treat a benign kidney issue". Vice-President Mike Pence, however, said in a speech Monday night that the procedure was "long-planned".

Dr. Sanjay Gupta of CNN said Monday that while it was "unclear exactly what [Trump] had done, an embolization procedure is typically done for cancer - although it's very clear in this statement that this was a benign condition".

"The treatment of choice" is to cut off the blood supply so the growth shrinks, added Dr Lambros Stamatakis of MedStar Washington Hospital Centre. "One of the ways to treat them is to embolize them, to block the blood flow to that part of the kidney", Gupta said.

In an interview with People.com, Dr. Jeffrey Berns, professor of medicine and pediatrics at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, said the average recovery time for such a procedure would depend on the specifics of the kidney condition.

The president spoke with the first lady before the procedure, and he also spoke to the doctor after the procedure had been finished, a White House official said.

The Slovenia-born former model married Trump in 2005.

Melania received an outpouring of support from politicians and the public, with Paul Ryan writing on Twitter: "So pleased her procedure was successful".

Communications director Stephanie Grisham tells NPR the first lady is "is doing well".

With the president watching, Mrs Trump last week unveiled the "Be Best" campaign, which she said will focus on childhood well-being, social media use and opioid abuse.
