Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been released from hospital after being admitted to a non-surgical medical procedure in New York City earlier in the week, according to a court statement.
“Justice Ginsburg was discharged from the hospital today,” the court spokesman said in a statement. “She is at home and doing well.”
It is the latest in a series of hospitals for the Supreme Court’s oldest justice.
Ginsburg, 87, underwent a “minimally invasive” procedure at the Sloan Kettering Memorial Cancer Center to “review a bile duct stent,”; the court said. Doctors first introduced her last August, when justice underwent treatment for a cancerous tumor of her pancreas.

The procedure was aimed at “minimizing the risk of future infection,” according to the statement. And, according to forensic doctors, such reviews are common.
Earlier this month, Ginsburg had another procedure at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore to clean the stent. She also went to the hospital in mid-July to have gallstones removed and to be treated for a suspected infection.
And she overcame another gallstone-related infection in May, the Supreme Court said at the time.
But these are not the only health issues he faces.
According to a Ginsburg statement two weeks ago, she has spent several months in chemotherapy for a recurrence of cancer – which she has fought four times before.
