You may have heard the story of a professional musician who played the violin while having brain surgery at Mayo Clinic. That journey started back in 2009. A surgical team implanted electrodes into his brain to stop a tremor that could have ended his career. Today, Roger continues to be one of the music's foremost violinists, playing for audiences on the world's stage. To learn more, visit http://mayocl.in/2hnoliT.
+TheDragiix3 it turned out PERFECTLY
the doctors told us that nobody reeally lives from what happened to him so they gave it all they had and it worked, they had to perform 2 surgeries in the same place and everything, he recovered in days which got all the attention of the doctors who worked there, they went up to see him because they couldn't believe that we even remembered what happened at the moment when he had one of the seizures which isn't really suppose to happen, but around december 18, 2016 he was having breakfast and all ( peacefully ) so I was taking a shower all calm and stuff when suddenly I hear a loud sound and some chocking so I quickly ran out with a towel screaming his name because he was the only one home ( my mom was with my grandma at the church ) and once I ran out well I saw him on the ground with a lot of blood all over him, blood on the wall.. it was really scary so I quickly checked the surgery part and it was all fine, I checked his head for any bad injuries and I didnt see anything severe other than blood coming out of his nose and since he was moving well he got a lot of blood all over him, so I told him so stay still because he could hear me, when I said his name he tried to open his eyes but they closed fast + he was getting comfy with his arms around his head and his leg on top of the other so I told him to stay still, I took out my phone and called 911 but sadly I didn't know the address ( new house ) so I quickly told him to keep breathing and to stay calm that I'm gonna find help so I ran out ( yes with a towel ) I ran to one of my neighbors and told her to please call 911 and she already knew about my brother so she ran , called them and quickly went to check on him ( shes a nurse ), I tried calling my mom but she didn't answer so I left her a message and when I did she quickly called me and asked me what happened so I told her and they drove super fast home and the ambulance was already there getting him ready but really everything turned out well, like in 1 day he had stopped puking and everything but his surgery part was swelling and they told us that his brain got a bit separated from the bone but it wasn't something severe, it was because of the fall which was solid on the floor ( concrete ) but he was speaking and everything as if nothing had happened and then everyone wanted to see him and called him a warrior and stuff, they asked for the video of the surgery ( the doctors+ surgeons, yes these are new ones since we moved out of the old house to a new place ) so we plan to show it to them very soon :) but yea, hes completely fine, he remembers everything, speaks, eats and everything but for 2 years they said that he shouldnt carry heavy things :)
I myself have Essential Tremors and runs in my family. I also play guitar and I know exactly how he felt not being able to barely play anymore or simple everyday task it's almost heartbreaking, But i keep trying not giving up!!! My Great Grandmother has had this surgery done and has done her wonders and now My Grandmother just had this surgery done last week. I can't wait to see her reaction and her being able to just simple everyday life task easier now. I'm opening up to the idea of having this surgery done to one day hopefully
I had the privilege of playing in a masterclass with Mr. Frisch at Missouri State University last week. At the end of the class, he demonstrated a technique to practice intonation where he would very slowly draw his bow across the strings. He did it with perfection! It's amazing how this surgery made that possible!
There's no nerve endings in the brain, so you feel no pain in it and there's no need for anaesthetic when having brain surgeory. They keep people awake in brain surgery to make sure everything is going fine. (just an explanation in case you weren't joking and didn't know)
We should all be aware that this kind of surgery was only made possible by many, many experiments developing these techniques in animals. I hope everyone in the "animal rights" community has the opportunity to watch this video, to help them understand why biomedical scientists use animals in their research.
I notice a bit of staccato speech when he's talking now, can't tell if it's part of the tremors to begin with or it's a complication of inserting electrodes right into the motor cortex! either way, he'd better have that in his mouth instead of his hands i bet :)
this has all the characteristics of Parkinson's, and in the animation it looked like the electrodes were being implanted in the globus pallidus, which is where you would stimulate the brain to stop Parkinsonian tremors, so why are they saying it's essential tremor? Wouldn't he have had essential tremor his entire life if it was that? Plus, he has the age of a person who might start developing Parkinson's. Does anybody know what he actually has?
+PapeBlaSit I would so love to see an episode that addresses ET. Been tempted to email Shonda some of the crazy stories my tremor has given me over the years, from drug reactions to spilling boiling water on myself.
Chalk another one up for brain surgeons, so much win. And to think we still have so much to learn about the human CPU. I think over the course of the next decade or two as technology develops further, we will learn some really crazy things about how the brain does what it does.
śmiesznie by było ja by na operacje przyjechali Papuasi wynajętym autokarem Orbisu mieli by wyżerkę to co zjedli popili by spirytusem do dezynsekcji narzędzi chirurgicznych no i oczywiście skrzypek by im zrobił miłą atmosferę grając na instrumencie z początku żywo a potem coraz słabiej i słabiej
Brilliant!!!! That's all I can say of the Mayo clinic's engieering and medical team!!!! Brilliant! I am so thankful to God for placing the RIGHT people at the Mayo
Clinic! This is such a wonderful story! God continue to bless this violinist, the Mayo clinic and all the patients there...I am just so thrilled at this situation. Praise God for having created such ingenuity! Congratulations to Roger and to those involved at Mayo for this miracle!
+RichardGMoss You're assuming a hell of alot there mister. How about science is looking for anything that lets us better understand the natural world?
One day, I may be long dead by then, or maybe it'll happen tomorrow who knows?, science will allow us to discover how the universe was created, where it came from. 'God' is just a forever moving goalpost that adds nothing to human knowledge or understanding.
