Ruth Bader Ginsburg has undergone a non-surgical procedure.
The 87-year-old Supreme Court Justice was admitted into a New York City hospital on Wednesday (July 29) for a routine non-surgical procedure to correct a bile stent, a court spokesperson shared with NBC News.
Justice Ginsburg underwent a minimally invasive procedure this afternoon at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center to revise a bile duct stent that was originally placed in August 2019, the spokesperson shared.
“According to her doctors, stent revisions are common occurrences, and the procedure, performed using endoscopy and medical imaging guidance, was done to minimize the risk of future infection,” the court spokesperson said. “The Justice is resting comfortably and expects to be released from the hospital by the end of the week.”
Earlier this month, Justice Ginsburg was hospitalized for a brief time for a possible infection.
Several days later, she announced that her liver cancer had returned, but she will remain on the Supreme Court while undergoing chemotherapy.
We hope Justice Ginsburg has a speedy recovery!
