Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg returned to the hospital for a nonsurgical medical procedure in New York City Wednesday, according to Fox News.

Ginsburg has recently undergone numerous hospitalizations as she’s the oldest of the Supreme Court’s justices.

However, Ginsburg expects to be released from the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center by the end of the week.

Ginsburg is 87 years old and underwent a “minimally invasive” procedure to “revise a bile duct stent,” the statement said.

It was initially inserted because she underwent treatment for a cancerous tumor on her pancreas.

More from Fox News:

The procedure aimed to “minimize the risk of future infection,” according to the statement. And, according to the justice’s doctors, such revisions are common.

Earlier this month, Ginsburg had another procedure at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore to clean out the stent. She also went to the hospital in mid-July to have gallstones removed and for the treatment of a suspected infection.

And she overcame another gallstone-related infection back in May, the Supreme Court said at the time.

But those are not the only health issues she is facing.

According to a statement from Ginsburg two weeks ago, she has been undergoing chemotherapy for the last few months due to a recurrence of cancer – which she has battled four times previously.

The court’s Wednesday statement said that the liberal justice “is resting comfortably.”
