The First Lady is currently recovering after she had a procedure called embolization done at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. The procedure is considered a minimally invasive surgery. It involves cutting off blood flow to a particular part of the body and is typically used to shrink a tumor or block an aneurysm. At this time however, the White House isn’t saying why Melania needed the procedure. They simply referred to it as “a benign kidney condition” without any further information being released. The surgery was a success and there were no complications, according to her office. She is expected to remain at the hospital for the rest of the week and make a full recovery.
