Washington, July 30 (IANS) US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg underwent a "minimally invasive non-surgical procedure" to revise a bile duct stent placed past year, according to a spokesperson.

She will remain in the hospital until the end of the week and is resting comfortably.

In May, Ginsburg was hospitalized for treatment for a benign gallbladder condition.

The operation was undertaken "to revise a bile duct stent" that was originally inserted last August at the same hospital, the prestigious Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, according to the statement. Ginsburg has had multiple bouts of cancer, including pancreatic cancer for which she underwent radiation therapy in 2019, and colon cancer in 1999.

The statement specified that such procedures are common and done in an effort to avoid future infection, according to Ginsburg's doctors. "I remain fully able to do that", she said.
