Ginsburg welcomes 31 new USA residents at D.C. ceremony

"Justice Ginsburg was discharged from the hospital yesterday and is recuperating at home", Kathy Arberg said in a statement on Wednesday.

Ginsburg, 85, had two cancerous nodules removed from her left lung Friday at Memorial Sloan Kettering hospital in NY.

"As long as I can do the job full steam, I will do it", Ginsburg said last year, despite being five years above the average retirement age of the 11 justices preceding her.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been discharged from the hospital and is now recovering at home after her recent operation.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is living up to her fame as a tireless worker that won't let anything-not even cancer-get in the way of doing what needs to get done.

Both were successfully removed at New York's Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and afterwards "there was no evidence of any remaining disease", it added.

Ginsburg was hospitalized last month after a fall in her office on November 7, in which she fractured three ribs.

Ginsburg has said she intends to remain on the bench. Scans performed before surgery indicated no evidence of disease elsewhere in the body. She survived pancreatic cancer thanks to an early diagnosis in 2009, and in 1999 underwent surgery, chemotherapy and radiation for colon cancer. Currently, no further treatment is planned.

The justices are scheduled to hear their next round of arguments on 7 January.
