Brain surgery – patient awake

The squeamish may prefer to look away, go make a cup of tea or email someone on Facebook instead of watching this video.
I worked in neurosurgery on the wards for some time in a fairly junior capacity, it was possible the most stressful job I have ever had and isn’t something I would ever do again.  Not ever.  But I loved it and have good memories of my experiences there, and the dedication and expertise of my colleagues still inspires me today.
This video clip is impressive for a number of reasons – mainly the way the ongoing feedback of the patient helps direct the surgery and the calm manner of everyone involved, especially the patient.
