Steve Jobs returns to work at AppleApple chief executive Steve Jobs returned to work this week following a six-month medical leave, the company said Monday.
"Steve is back to work," a company spokesman told Reuters. "He's currently at Apple a few days a week, and working from home the remaining days. We are very glad to have him back."
In January, Apple announced that Jobs, who was thought to be suffering from a hormone imbalance that was contributing to his weight-loss, would take a medical leave through the end of June after discovering that his health problems were "more complex" than originally thought.
It was later revealed that Jobs spent much of that waiting for, and then recovering from, a liver transplant that was conducted at Methodist University Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.
James D. Eason, M.D., chief of transplantation and professor of surgery at the hospital, would later say that Jobs' prognosis following the surgery was "excellent."
