Adele's Throat Surgery Was A Success
Adele recently underwent a procedure a Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston in order to mend a recurrent vocal cord haemorrhage that she has been suffering from. The US hospital released a statement earlier today stating the operating doctor, Steve Zeitels, was happy with the results and progress so far and is confident the UK singer will make a full recovery...
The statement read: "Adele underwent vocal cord microsurgery by Dr. Steven Zeitels to stop recurrent vocal cord haemorrhage (bleeding) from a benign polyp. 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 and he 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 also performed a similar procedure on Aerosmith's Steven Tyler, who went on to make a full recovery and has continued to perform successfully. With that said, we all wish you well, Adele!
