MGH: Adele To Make Full Recovery After Vocal Surgery

BOSTON (CBS) – Grammy Award winning singer Adele recently underwent vocal cord microsurgery, Mass. General confirmed Monday.

Dr. Steven Zeitels, the Director of the Massachusetts General Hospital Voice Center, performed the procedure to “stop recurrent vocal cord hemorrhage from the benign polyp.”

The hospital said the condition is typically the result of unstable blood vessels in the vocal cord. Adele’s doctors and vocal therapist in the U.K. recommended surgery in Boston with Dr. Zeitels.

Dr. Zeitels previously performed the same surgery on many other singers, including Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler. The doctor pioneered the procedure, which uses specialized lasers to stop vocal cord bleeding in singers.

He expects Adele to make a full recovery.

In Early October, Adele cancelled all remaining live tour dates and appearances due to her condition.
