Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg returned to the bench on Tuesday for oral arguments for the time since surgery in December, The Hill reported. 

The 85-year-old Ginsburg missed oral arguments in January for the first time in her more than 25 years on the court.

Even though she did not appear at the court during her recovery, Ginsburg did vote on cases, including with the majority earlier this month in a decision that prevented a restrictive Louisiana abortion law from going into effect, according to CNBC.

Ginsburg underwent surgery on Dec. 21, 2018 to remove two cancerous nodules from her lower left lung.

The court announced in mid-January that her recovery was on track and that a post-surgery evaluation showed no evidence of remaining disease, according to The Hill.

The announcement also said that no further treatment is required.

Last Friday, Ginsburg returned to the Supreme Court building for the first time in order to participate in the justices' private conference, the first one scheduled since mid-January, according to NPR.

Ginsburg, who is the oldest justice and senior member of the court’s liberal bloc, has been working hard to regain her strength, with friends saying she is walking more than a mile a day and is once again working with her trainer twice a week.
