Adele has undergone laser microsurgery to repair damaged vocal cords that have caused repeated hemorrhaging, leading to the cancellation of many tour dates for the year's biggest pop act.

Dr. Steven M. Zeitels, director of Massachusetts General Hospital's Voice Center, "expects Adele to make a full recovery from her laser microsurgery," the hospital said in a statement. Zeitels has previously treated other singers with similar ailments, including Aerosmith's Steven Tyler.

Adele has been suffering recurring rupturing of blood vessels in her vocal cords. Last month she canceled several weeks of upcoming touring in the U.S. due to the issue.
