Adele - Doctor Confirms Adele's Surgery Was Successful

The doctor who operated on Adele's vocal cords has hailed the surgery a success and assured fans the British star will sing again.
The Chasing Pavements hitmaker has been forced to cancel a number of concerts in both Britain and America this year (11) due to a recurrent throat condition and she went under the knife at a hospital in Boston, Massachusetts on Monday (07NOv11) in a bid to rectify the problem.
Dr. Steven Zeitels, who has previously treated Steven Tyler, Julie Andrews and Cher, performed the operation at Massachusetts General Hospital and bosses at the medical facility have now released a statement hailing the surgery a success.
The statement reads, "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, the Director of the Massachusetts General Hospital Voice Center... Dr. Zeitels expects Adele to make a full recovery from her laser microsurgery."
