The embolization procedure was performed at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center to treat a benign condition. The statement further added that the surgery “was successful and there were no complications.”

“The First Lady looks forward to a full recovery so she can continue her work on behalf of children everywhere,” said a statement from the first lady’s communications director, Stephanie Grisham.

While his wife was in surgery, President Donald Trump remained at the White House to fulfil important duties. He left on the Marine One to visit her later on the same day.

The pool report documented that the POTUS arrived at Walter Reed at 5:18 pm ET.

On his way to the hospital, the president posted a tweet chastising White House leakers and the ‘Fake News Media’.

The 48-year-old FLOTUS was last seen with her husband when they greeted the three Americans released by North Korea at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland last Thursday.

News about Trump’s surgery comes a week after she unveiled an anti-bullying initiative she planned to focus on during her tenure as First Lady.

The “Be Best” campaign aims to address the “social, emotional, and physical health” of children, with three pillars: well-being, social media, and opioid abuse.

“There is one goal: to educate children about the many issues they are facing today,” she said in a speech in the Rose Garden on May 7. “If we truly listen to what our kids have to say, whether it’s their concerns or ideas, adults can provide them the support and tools they need to grow up and be happy productive adults.”
