Musician Abhishek Prasad was amazed as the neurological condition causing his fingers to cramp began to improve while he was still on the operating table
A MAN strums the guitar — as surgeons in India operate on his brain.
Abhishek Prasad had been suffering a neurological disorder that caused his fingers to cramp in one hand, preventing him from strumming properly.
The 37-year-old sought treatment from numerous specialists before doctors at Bangalore’s Bhagwan Mahaveer Jain Hospital recommended a bizarre procedure to reverse the condition known as “musicians dystonia”.
Surgeons drilled into his skull under anaesthetic and attached an electrode that allowed them to pinpoint where in the brain needed “burning” to cure the rare nerve disorder.
Prasad described the surreal experience of being conscious on the operating table during the seven-hour procedure as his fingers slowly became more dexterous.
“I was amazed to see my fingers improve magically on the operation table itself,” he told the Times of India newspaper.

“By the end of the surgery, my fingers were 100 percent cured and I could move them like before.”
Prasad had stitches removed Thursday in hospital, where he thanked doctors and played a few tunes to demonstrate how well he had recovered.
Dr Sharan Srinivasan said: “During this entire surgery Abhishek was fully awake and was playing the guitar, since this problem only comes when he tries to play.
“This feedback was very important for the doctors to get the exact location of the target to be lesioned.”
