Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was discharged from Memorial Sloan Kettering Center Friday, a Supreme Court spokeswoman said.

"She is home and doing well," the spokeswoman said.

On Wednesday night, the Supreme Court said Ginsburg was "resting comfortably" at the Manhattan hospital after undergoing a non-surgical procedure.

"Justice Ginsburg underwent a minimally invasive non-surgical procedure today at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City to revise a bile duct stent that was originally placed at Sloan Kettering in August 2019," read a statement.

"According to her doctors, stent revisions are common occurrences and the procedure, performed using endoscopy and medical imaging guidance, was done to minimize the risk of future infection," the statement continued. "The Justice is resting comfortably and expects to be released from the hospital by the end of the week."

Ginsburg, 87, recently announced that she is receiving chemotherapy for a recurrence of cancer and would remain a member of the Court as long as she is able to do the job "full steam."
