Bengaluru man plays guitar during brain surgery


Bengaluru: In an astonishing moment, a patient has displayed – strumming guitar while doctors at a Bangaluru’s hospital operated on his brain.

As per sources, the 32-year-old techie-turned-musician played the instrument on the operation table even as surgeons ‘burned’ his brain to correct a neurological disorder.

It is said that the 7-hour surgery was performed to cure him from a condition called musician’s dystonia.

Musician’s dystonia, also known as Musician’s cramp, is a neurological motor disorder characterised by involuntary, prolonged muscle contractions, which cause affected parts of the body to be twisted into abnormal postures. It occurs due to abnormal and involuntary flexion of muscles, because of rigorous use.

Within three days of surgery, he was able to walk out of the hospital and all set to play guitar again, sources said.
