A patient put on a show for doctors during his brain surgery at a Brazilian hospital.

33-year-old Anthony Kullkamp Dias was on the operating table with his guitar while doctors worked to remove a tumor from his brain.

He played songs and sang during the procedure, including the song “Yesterday” by The Beatles.

Doctors kept Dias awake and talking during the surgery in order to monitor his motor functions and speech as they removed the tumor.
