A violinist’s surgery

A patient Dagmar Turner, 53, plays violin while surgeons remove her brain tumor at King's College Hospital in London, Britain, January 31, 2020 in this handout image obtained by Reuters on Wednesday. Dagmar, who has been playing the violin since she was 10, was asked to play the violin during the surgery so surgeons could preserve her ability to play music as they remove a tumor from the right frontal lobe of her brain - close to the area that controls the fine movement of her left hand.
