Treasury’s Geithner in Hospital for Kidney Stone

U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner was hospitalized today for surgery to remove a kidney stone.

Geithner was admitted to George Washington University Hospital in Washington to have “a minor surgical procedure this afternoon to remove the kidney stone, and his physician expects that he will be discharged tomorrow with orders to rest this weekend,” Treasury spokesman Steve Adamske said in a statement. “He has been told that he should expect to be able to return to work on Monday.”
