An Indian man had to play his guitar for seven hours while surgeons operated on his brain.
Abhishek Prasad, 37, was being treated for a neurological condition that caused his fingers to cramp, leaving his hands useless. He was diagnosed with a condition called focal dystonia.
A doctor who practices in Japan was able to correct the condition with a relatively minor brain surgery — the first of its kind attempted in India.
They drilled into Prasad’s skull and attached an electrode to his brain to find out exactly what they needed to repair. They then created a small burn to fuse several parts together.
The surgeons said the guitar playing was critical during the surgery because it gave them continuous feedback.
