Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, battling a recurrence of cancer, was hospitalized Wednesday to undergo “a minimally invasive non-surgical procedure” and likely will be released from the hospital later this week, the Supreme Court announced.
“Justice Ginsburg underwent a minimally invasive non-surgical procedure today at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City to revise a bile duct stent that was originally placed at Sloan Kettering in August 2019. 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 Justice is resting comfortably and expects to be released from the hospital by the end of the week,” the release says. more
