This could be the coolest cover of Weezer’s “Island In The Sun.” Not just because 19-year-old Kira Iaconetti has a good voice. But she sang the song in a hospital (Seattle Children’s Hospital), in the operating room, during brain surgery, during her brain surgery. Not too many people can say they did that. Take a look at this video:

Who knew that Weezer would meet neurosurgery in this way. Soon, Iaconetti may meet Weezer, based on this tweet:

That’s totally “hip, hip,” as the Weezer song goes. Oh, and speaking of hip, did you catch the head bobbing, cranium dancing that her surgeon, Jason Hauptman, MD, PhD, an Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery at the University of Washington, was doing?

One of the lines in the Weezer song is “I can’t control my brain.” That seemed to be the concern four years ago when she started getting odd feelings and experiences like fatigue whenever she would sing or listen to music. That would be a problem for most people, because, after all, who could go more than a week without a little K-pop? But it was a particular problem for Iaconetti because she’s a singer. Not just a sing-in-the-shower or a do-karaoke-when-everyone-else-is-drinking-so-that-Frankenstein-monotone-voice-can-actually-sound-melodic type of singer. Rather singing is her real passion, her talent, as she’s performed in musicals since age 6. It turns out she was having seizures caused by a small tumor in the right temporal lobe of her brain. While performing surgery to remove the tumor seemed like the logical next step, she was rightfully worried that the surgery may disrupt her brain enough to damage her singing and musical ability.

That’s why her surgical team decided to perform awake brain surgery, using an awake craniotomy. A craniotomy is when you make a hole in the skull to reach the brain. They first gave her medications to fall asleep and numb her skull area, because if you have ever opened a freezer door into your head, you realize that your scalp has a bunch of pain receptors. So do the various layers wrapping your brain. However, once you reach the brain, you can “Wake Me Up Before You Go Go.” The brain does not have the same pain receptors. Therefore, the team could then let her wake up so that they could talk to her and have her do things like sing. This way they could monitor how her brain was functioning during the surgery and use computer imaging to map out the different parts of her brain. This way they could be very careful about avoiding the areas that may affect her musical ability. This way we could all see and hear her performance, which was very “hip, hip,” i.e., cool.

They had a whole band of experts in anesthesiology, neuro-psychology, music therapy, nursing, and neurosurgery helping in the operating room. No bass player or drummer though, probably because fitting a drum set and amps into the operating room would have been a bit tough. Once the tumor was removed, the anesthesiologist then gave her medications to allow her to “drift into the zone” and go back to sleep so that the team could then close up the hole in her cranium. Indications after the surgery are that all went well.

All in all, quite a performance by everyone. It’s an example of music meeting medicine. It’s also pretty cool that Iaconetti permitted all of us a view into her surgery. Here’s to the continuation of her singing career. Hip, hip. Hooray.

This might be the coolest cover of Weezer’s “Island In The Sun.” Not even if 19- year-old Kira Iaconetti has a great voice. However she sang the tune in a health center ( Seattle Kid’s Healthcare facility), in the operating space, throughout brain surgical treatment, throughout her brain surgical treatment. Few individuals can state they did that. Have a look at this video:

Who understood that Weezer would fulfill neurosurgery in this method. Quickly, Iaconetti might fulfill Weezer, based upon this tweet:

(************ )That’s completely “hip, hip, “as the Weezer tune goes. Oh, and speaking of hip, did you capture the head bobbing, cranium dancing that her cosmetic surgeon, Jason Hauptman, MD, PhD, an Assistant Teacher of Neurosurgery at the University of Washington, was doing?

Among the lines in the Weezer tune is “I can’t manage my brain.” That appeared to be the issue 4 years back when she began getting odd sensations and experiences like tiredness whenever she would sing or listen to music. That would be an issue for the majority of people, because, after all, who could go more than a week without a little K-pop? However it was a specific issue for Iaconetti since she’s a vocalist. Not simply a sing-in-the-shower or a do-karaoke-when-everyone-else-is-drinking-so-that-Frankenstein-monotone-voice-can-actually-sound-melodic kind of vocalist. Rather singing is her genuine enthusiasm, her skill, as she’s carried out in musicals given that age 6. It ends up she was having actually seizures triggered by a little growth in the ideal temporal lobe of her brain. While carrying out surgical treatment to eliminate the growth appeared like the rational next action, she was truly fretted that the surgical treatment might interrupt her brain enough to harm her singing and musical capability.

(***** )

That’s why her surgical group chose to carry out awake brain surgical treatment, utilizing an awake craniotomy. A craniotomy is when you make a hole in the skull to reach the brain. They initially offered her medications to drop off to sleep and numb her skull location, since if you have actually ever opened a freezer door into your head, you understand that your scalp has a lot of discomfort receptors. So do the different layers covering your brain. Nevertheless, as soon as you reach the brain, you can “Wake Me Up Prior To You Go Go.” The brain does not have the exact same discomfort receptors. For that reason, the group might then let her awaken so that they might talk with her and have her do things like sing. In this manner they might keep an eye on how her brain was working throughout the surgical treatment and utilize computer system imaging to draw up the various parts of her brain. In this manner they might be really mindful about preventing the locations that might impact her musical capability. In this manner we might all see and hear her efficiency, which was really “hip, hip,” i.e., cool.

They had an entire band of professionals in anesthesiology, neuro-psychology, music treatment, nursing, and neurosurgery assisting in the operating space. No bass gamer or drummer however, most likely since fitting a drum set and amps into the operating space would have been a bit difficult. As soon as the growth was gotten rid of, the anesthesiologist then offered her medications to permit her to “wander into the zone” and return to sleep so that the group might then close up the hole in her cranium. Signs after the surgical treatment are that all worked out.

All in all, rather an efficiency by everybody. It’s an example of music conference medication. It’s likewise quite cool that Iaconetti allowed everybody a view into her surgical treatment. Here’s to the extension of her singing profession. Hip, hip. Hooray.
