Woman plays violin during her brain surgery

A 53-year old passionate violinist Dagmar Turner undergone brain surgery at King’s College hospital in London.

She was worried she may lose her music skills. So she requested she is allowed to play the violin during the operation. She did this to ensure that the surgeons did not damage the part which controls the movement of her hands.

Turner said that the violin is her passion and she started playing this when she was 10 years old. She said that the thought of losing my ability is heartbreaking.

Her doctor said: “We managed to remove over 90% of the tumor. It includes all the areas suspicious of aggressive activity while retaining full function in her left hand.”

Dr. Keyoumars Ashkan, a neurosurgeon, came up with this creative solution. He said: “We perform around 400 resections each year, which often involves rousing patients to carry out language tests. But this was the first time I’ve had a patient play an instrument.”
