A female patient plays the violin in an operation theatre at a hospital in London, UK.
According to a British Broadcasting BBC report, doctors at King's College Hospital, London, performed successful surgery to remove a tumour from the brain of a 53-year-old woman named Doug Martner.
Before the operation, doctors also identified the parts of a woman's brain that help her play the violin, which causes her to move her hands while playing the violin.
Doug Martner, 53, feared he might not lose his ability to play the violin after the surgery.
According to reports, doctors requested the woman to play the violin during surgery to find out if any part of her brain was affected during the operation.
Doug Martner has been playing the violin for the past 40 years.
According to doctors, this was the first operation of his career where the patient did something during the surgery.
He said 90 percent of Doug Martner's brain tumour was removed and he hoped he would recover soon.
Three days later, Doug Martner was sent home from the hospital.
