Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner has been admitted to a hospital where he will undergo minor surgery to deal with a kidney stone.

Treasury spokesman Steve Adamske said Geithner began experiencing severe pain from a kidney stone during the night and was admitted to George Washington University hospital Friday morning.

Adamske said that Geithner will have what he called a “minor surgical procedure” performed Friday afternoon and expects to be back at work on Monday.

The real question in all this is: will the Treasury Department’s Flickr photographer come along to document the experience?
