A musician and computer engineer from Bangladesh played guitar during his brain surgery in Bangalore, India. 

Taskin Ibna Ali underwent the operation at Bhagawan Mahaveer Jain Hospital in May, reports the Mail Online.

The 31-year-old Bangladeshi musician was treated for focal dystonia. The neurological disorder left him unable to use the fingers of his left hand. 

Within a year, the rare condition had diminished his ability to play the guitar by 80%. 

The surgeon encouraged Taskin to play the instrument during the procedure to identify whether mobility had returned to his fingers. 

Gradually, he regained control of four of his fingers.

According to the report, he also typed on his mobile phone during the surgery.

Post-surgery, he recovered full control of his third finger, marking a full-reversal of his condition. He plans to return to his music career soon.
