A recent video posted by UCLA Health in Los Angeles is a remarkable footage of a patient, Brad Carter, undergoing a brain operation to fit a pacemaker to remedy a neurological disorder.

A victim of neurological disorder since 2006, he suffered from twitches and tremors.

The video clip taken with a Smartphone using the Vine app shows Mr. Carter greeting his parents during the surgery and singing and playing his guitar to check if the pacemaker works.

This also helped the doctors make adjustments to the pacemaker while he performed certain tasks so they could correct any potential problems.

"Not everyone gets to experience a surgery and more specifically an awake brain surgery.

I thought it was a great opportunity to share with the world."
