Biden left Jefferson Hospital for Neuroscience in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on Tuesday afternoon and returned home, spokesman Jason Miller said.
"On the morning of Tuesday May 11, Attorney General Beau Biden suffered a minor stroke," said Biden's physician, Robert Rosenwasser, in a written statement. "Due to rapid triage, diagnosis, and institution of appropriate medical therapy, he is leaving Jefferson Hospital for Neuroscience of Thomas Jefferson University neurologically normal.
"I am pleased to report that the results of his final discharge general and neurological exam find his neurological status perfect in all arenas including motor skills, language function, and cognitive assessment."
He predicted Biden will return to work "after a brief period of rest at home."
