The Supreme Courtroom introduced today that Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who wounded her remaining shoulder in a fall at her home earlier this month, will go through “reverse whole shoulder replacement surgery” tomorrow morning. In a press launch issued this afternoon, the court’s public data office environment indicated that the 63-yr-previous justice will curtail her routines “for the subsequent couple of weeks” she will have to have to don a sling “for a number of weeks and will go through bodily therapy for a number of months” but is expected to get well thoroughly.

Sotomayor is not the only present-day justice to have gone through shoulder replacement operation: In April 2013, Justice Stephen Breyer underwent a equivalent operation right after he fell off his bicycle in the vicinity of the Korean War Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C.
