A patient at Memorial Hermann Hospital underwent surgery on her brain with her favorite musical instrument in hand: the flute.

Anna Henry was wide awake while doctors performed a deep brain stimulation procedure. Henry suffers from a hereditary problem with tremors.

During surgery, she tested her ability to play the flute by giving surgeons a concert.

The procedure could help reduce her problem with tremors by 50 to 90 percent.
