Adele undergoes throat surgery

Email this story Printable version Adele's throat surgery was a success, her doctor has announced. The British singer underwent a procedure at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston recently and is expected to make a full recovery. The hospital released a statement saying operating doctor Steve Zeitels was happy with the results and progress so far. 'Adele underwent vocal cord microsurgery by Dr. Steven Zeitels to stop recurrent vocal cord haemorrhage (bleeding) from a benign polyp,' it read. 'This condition is typically the result of unstable blood vessels in the vocal cord that can rupture. Based on the advice of her doctor and voice therapist in the United Kingdom, Adele came to Boston to consult and undergo corrective voice surgery with Dr. Zeitels. 'Dr. Zeitels expects Adele to make a full recovery from her laser microsurgery.' The Someone Like You songstress has had to cancel and postpone several concerts in recent months because of the condition. 'Doctors have ordered her to rest her voice and completely recuperate before looking to schedule any work commitments,' a statement from Adele's team read last month. The doctor looking after the 23-year-old performed a similar procedure on Aerosmith's Steven Tyler who went on to make a full recovery and has continued to perform successfully. © Cover Media To be in with a chance of winning 1000 CDs including rare, signed and promotional copies simply 'like' our Award Winning facebook page here!
