Adele Undergoes Surgery in Boston (Expected to Recover)

Adele has finally undergone vocal chord surgery to stop a recurring vocal cord hemorrhage, Billboard.com reports.

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, the Director of the Massachusetts General Hospital Voice Center.

Dr. Zeitels, who is also the Eugene B. Casey Professor of Laryngeal Surgery at Harvard Medical School, has pioneered many vocal cord surgical procedures including the use of specialized lasers to stop vocal cord bleeding in singers.

The singer is expected to make a full recovery from her laser microsurgery.

Dr. Zeitels of Massachusetts General Hospital where the singer underwent the surgery said:

“Her condition is typically the result of unstable blood vessels in the vocal cord that can rupture.”

Dr. Zeitels is the same doctor who performed a similar procedure on Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler.

Adele’s throat problems forced her to cancel her UK and US tour.
