NEW YORK — Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg underwent a non-surgical procedure Wednesday.
Ginsburg, 87, had a bile duct stent revised. The stent has been placed last summer, the Supreme Court said in a statement.
Ginsburg underwent “a minimally invasive” non-surgical procedure at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York.
Doctors said stent revisions were a common occurrence and the procedure was done to minimize the risk of future infections.
On July 17, Ginsburg announced that she had been receiving chemotherapy since May to treat a recurrence of cancer, but added that she has no plans to retire from the Supreme Court.
Doctors found lesions on her liver following a regular scan and a subsequent biopsy in February. Ginsburg said she had seen “positive results” since beginning chemotherapy on May 19.
