Dear MEL Topic Readers,

This violinist played her instrument as surgeons removed a brain tumor

A brain tumor is a mass or growth of abnormal cells in one’s brain. While primary brain tumors can begin in the brain, cancer in other parts of the body could spread to the brain.

A 53-year-old female professional violinist in the UK suffered a brain tumor. It was important for her career and life to have the tumor removed without impairing her abilities to play the musical instrument. So, when she underwent surgery to remove the tumor from her right frontal lobe, she was asked by the surgeons to play the violin to make sure her musical abilities were not damaged. That sounds like pretty much a hands-on surgery, doesn’t it?

Fortunately, the surgery went well, and she was released from the hospital only three days later.

Enjoy reading the article to learn about this extraordinary brain surgery, and if you’re interested, watch the video of the violinist playing the violin during the surgery.
