Adele has undergone surgery on her vocal chords at a hospital in Boston.
The singer travelled to Massachusetts General Hospital for the procedure, aimed at stopping bleeding in her throat.
The operation was carried out by Dr Steven Zeitels, who performed the same surgery on Aerosmith frontman, Steve Tyler.
He has also treated Cher, Julie Andrews and The Who's Roger Daltrey.
A statement released by the hospital said:
"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.
"Dr. Zeitels... has pioneered many vocal cord surgical procedures including the use of specialised lasers to stop vocal cord bleeding in singers.
"He has performed this unique procedure for many vocalists including Steven Tyler, allowing him to return to full performance."
Last month, 23-year-old Adele was forced to cancel all her remaining tour dates and public appearances due to her illness.
She was plagued by vocal problems throughout 2011 and cancelled many of her US and UK tour dates.
The hospital has said that they expect Adele to make a full recovery.
