Los Angeles, Nov 10 (IANS) Singer Adele has undergone a surgery of her vocal chords in the US, and her doctor is expecting her to recover fully.
Adele, 23, was forced to cancel tour dates and promotional appearances for the rest of the year due to her illness.
She underwent vocal chord microsurgery to stop recurrent bleeding from a benign polyp, reports dailymail.co.uk.
The Grammy winner was operated upon by Steven Zeitels, director of the Massachusetts General Hospital’s Voice Centre.
