Adele had microsurgery for a benign polyp on her vocal cords. Doctors at Massachusetts General Hospital released a statement saying, “her prognosis is optimistic.” The statement said, ”Adele underwent vocal cord microsurgery to stop recurrent vocal cord hemorrhage 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. The doctor expects Adele to make a full recovery from her laser microsurgery. It’s likely that it will take several months until Adele is back to full voice.” Steven Tyler of Aerosmith used the same doctor for his throat surgery in 2006.
