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. "That's because she is the first lady", said Dr. Jeffrey Cadeddu, a professor of urology and radiology at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas.
Two urologists who have no personal knowledge of Mrs. Trump's condition said the most likely explanation for the procedure is a kind of noncancerous kidney tumor called an angiomyolipoma.
Communications director Stephanie Grisham tells NPR the first lady is "is doing well". Grisham declined to provide additional information or answer questions about the procedure, saying that the first lady is entitled to privacy.
The hospitalization comes as Melania Trump, 48, has taken a higher-profile role in the White House in recent weeks.
He went on to explain that the procedure is usually low risk, though he understood why the doctors want Trump to stay in the hospital for the remainder of the week.
