The procedure to revise a bile duct stent that was put in last August was done at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City on Wednesday.
“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 Supreme Court’s Wednesday press statement read.
Earlier this month, the 87-year-old justice announced she has been treated for cancer lesions in her liver and would continue receiving treatment.
She plans to do her job full steam ahead as long as she’s capable, the justice said.
A scan in February revealed cancer lesions in her liver and she began chemotherapy in May.
The senior justice was hospitalized earlier in July with an infection but she said that was unrelated to the cancer treatment.
