Pop music star Miley Cyrus is recovering from surgery on her vocal cords.

People.com reported Saturday that the 26-year-old artist is out of the hospital.

The outlet quoted an unnamed source as saying Cyrus is "doing great and will be back and better than ever early next year."

It is unclear exactly when she underwent the procedure.

The artist learned she needed the operation on her vocal cords when she was hospitalized for tonsillitis last month, Entertainment Tonight said.

E! News said Cyrus has put her touring plans on hold as she must refrain from talking or singing while her vocal cords heal.

Cyrus has not publicly commented about the surgery. She and her husband -- actor Liam Hemsworth -- split up earlier this year. She is now dating musician Cody Simpson.
