Lady Gaga is back on her feet and back into her towering platform heels less than three months after having hip surgery.

The Born This Way singer was forced to cancel her world tour in February after being diagnosed with synovitis - a chronic condition which causes joints to swell. Following surgery she was left wheelchair-bound.

But Lady Gaga has been pictured strutting through the streets of New York in huge black platform shoes, teamed with a black mini-dress and retro sunglasses.

This week she made her first public appearance since her operation, when she joined jazz trumpeter Brian Newman live on stage at the Gramercy Park Hotel.

They performed a special cover of the song Someone To Watch Over Me.

Brian tweeted after the show: "Thanks to the 1&only @ladygaga for coming out to @GPHhotel tonight an singing a song!!"
