    Anthony Kulkamp Dias, 33, from Brazilian shocked doctors by playing The Beatles song ‘Yesterday’ on his guitar while having brain surgery. The man was conscious during his operation to remove a tumour and played the instrument for the surgery team.
    Mr
    Kulkamp, a bank worker, also played some Brazilian country songs during
    the procedure last week at the Nossa Senhora de Conceição Hospital in
    the southern state of Santa Catarina.

    Anthonywho played
    guitar professionally for 20 years, discovered the tumour 15 days after
    his son was born.He told Brazilian news website G1.

    ‘I played six songs at determined moments,”My right hand was a bit
    weaker because that was the side that they were operating on. So I
    stopped and rested.’I was interspersing songs and talking with them.

    Playing the guitar and chatting allowed doctors to safely map Mr
    Kulkamp’s brain while awake to avoid injury that could compromise
    important brain functions.

    ‘While it surprised everyone, the surgery was performed,’His serenade
    allowed doctors to avoid hitting areas of his brain that control senses,
    movement and speech
