First Lady Melania Trump underwent emergency kidney surgery Monday for a benign condition.
She will reportedly remain at the hospital for the remainder of the week, her office announced in a statement.
“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 statement read. “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.”
Melania Trump is the first sitting first lady in more than three decades to have a serious medical procedure, CNN reported. In October 1987, then-first lady Nancy Reagan had a mastectomy, and Rosalynn Carter had a lump removed from her breast while serving as first lady in April 1977.
