Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg underwent surgery for early stage lung cancer Friday at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, the Supreme Court announced in a press release.
“Justice Ginsburg is resting comfortably and is expected to remain in the hospital for a few days,” Supreme Court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said in a statement.
Ginsburg received a pulmonary lobectomy to remove two malignant nodules in her left lung, which were discovered when she suffered a fall and broke three ribs in November.
After the surgery, doctors found no evidence the cancer had spread beyond her left lung.
