A woman is recovering from a remarkable brain surgery where she was allowed to play the flute during the operation.

Anna Henry, 63, had been suffering from intense tremors in her left hand and fingers. So surgeons at the Texas Medical Center in Houston implanted tiny electrodes into her brain.

While she was still on the operating table, the team handed Henry her flute to test if her hands were stable enough to play.

After playing one of her favorite classical concertos, doctors and nurses burst into applause.
