Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was released from the hospital after being admitted to a non-surgical medical operation in New York earlier this week, according to a court statement.
“Judge Ginsburg was released from the hospital today,” a court spokesman said in a statement. “She’s home and she’s doing well.”
It is the last in a series of hospitalizations for the oldest judiciary of the Supreme Court.
The 87-year-old Ginsburg underwent a “minimally invasive” procedure of “bile duct stent revision” at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, the court said. Doctors initially inserted it in August, when the court underwent treatment for a cancer of the day of her pancreas.

The aim of this procedure was to “minimize the risk of future infection”;. According to justice doctors, such revisions are common.
Earlier this month, Ginsburg had another procedure to clean the stent at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. She also went to the hospital in mid-July to remove the gallstones and treat the suspected infection.
And in May, she overcame another gallstone infection, the Supreme Court said at the time.
However, these are not the only health problems they face.
According to a statement from Ginsburg two weeks ago, she has been undergoing chemotherapy in recent months due to the recurrence of cancer, which she had previously fought four times.
