Labour leader undergoes sleep apnoea operation.
The hour-long NHS operation was performed at the Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital in central London.
Mr Miliband revealed in April that he suffered from sleep apnoea, which interrupts breathing during sleep, made worse by a deviated septum in his nose.
Sources close to the Labour leader dismissed media speculation that he was hoping the operation would make his voice less nasal.
One source who spoke to him after the op said he sounded "exactly the same".
A spokeswoman for the Labour leader said: "Ed Miliband had an operation this morning to correct a deviated septum in order to help with his sleep apnoea."
