Playing the Flute During Brain Surgery


Image: Texas Medical Center

When hand tremors made it difficult for musician Anna Henry to play her flute, she decided to undergo brain surgery. The procedure, called deep brain stimulation, involves inserting small electrodes in the brain to deliver electric current that reduces tremors.

After the procedure, doctors at Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center gave Henry her flute to see whether her hands were stable enough to play. The result? An operating room solo performance of a lifetime!
