Apple chief Steve Jobs 'recovering well' after liver transplant surgery

The hospital that performed Steve Jobs' liver transplant has confirmed that the Apple chief executive had surgery two months ago and that he is recovering well after the treatment.

The announcement by the Methodist University Hospital in Tennessee, which was made with Mr Jobs' permission, confirms the reason for his absence from a number of Apple events, including the launch of the new iPhone 3G S last week.

The hospital said Mr Jobs was, “the sickest person on the waiting list at the time a donor organ became available.”.
