Melania Trump Kidney Surgery
Although the editors of InsideSurgery.com are not participating in Melania Trump’s care, we have noted with interest news reports that she received a “kidney surgery” today at Walter Reed Hospital. She reportedly received an embolization for a “benign” condition and will be hospitalized through the end of the week.
