Heddie Adcock plays while being operated: what an impressive surgery

Eddie Adcock, professional musician, had to give up playing music because of the advancing Parkinson’s disease, a disturbance involving motor system, already known during the last century.   The disease is still object of several both neuropharmacological and neurosurgical researches.

This disturb starts with motion delays, slowness and stiffness, progressing with bothersome tremors, above all for a musician.

So there, Eddie turned to DBS: Deep Brain Stimulation, that is brain incitement through electrodes. The surgery was shot live and…the musician was asked to play a piece with a banjo to establish if the operation was turning out well.

How did it end? Watch the video and find out!!

    Long time lurker, thought I would say hello! I really dont post much but thanks for the good times I have here. Love this place..

    When I was hurt in that automobile accident my life would be changed eternally. Sadly that driver had no car insurance and I was going to be hurting for ever.

    This was not time for me to start and guess what to do. I had to find a good lawyer to help me get what I needed. After all, my family was counting on me.

    How lousy was it? I has bedridden for 6 months, I had to have constant care and my hospital bills went through the roof!

    Thankfully, I found a good referral site to help me.

    I will post more later this period to tell you more about what I have been going through.

    If you need an personal injury lawyer try the guys at accident lawyers
