Sam Smith has successful vocal cord surgery

Sam Smith has had successful surgery on his vocal cords at a hospital in America.

Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston said in a statement that he is expected to make a full recovery.

The surgery was performed by Dr Steven Zeitels, who has carried out the same procedure on Adele, Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler and Lionel Richie.

According to the hospital, Smith’s condition was the result of unstable blood vessels in his vocal cord.

They can rupture and stop people singing.
Smith’s song Stay With Me won Grammys for song and record of the year and he also was named best new artist in February.

The British’s singer’s In the Lonely Hour was named best pop vocal album.

Smith’s next live show is scheduled for 3 July at Thetford Forest in Suffolk.

He was forced to cancel a series of shows after finding out he needed vocal cord surgery, including a slot at Radio 1′s Big Weekend in Norwich.
