I saw this interesting bit on the web and thought I'd pass it along for others on Piano World:

"According to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, background music chosen by doctors helps them excel in their work...Nietzsche wrote, 'Without music, life would be a mistake,'" the study said. "Over a century later, our data prompt us to ponder if, without music, surgery would be a mistake...Classical music is a favourite choice in the operating theatre. A survey of the most popular tunes published in a British journal found Vivaldi's Four Seasons was top pick for surgical procedures, followed by Beethoven's Violin Concerto Op. 61, Bach's Brandenburg Concertos and Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries."

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that
we are to stand by the president right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public."-- Theodore Roosevelt

I am not sure how i would feel being operated on while the doctors listen to ride of the valkyries....that would be kinda weird! i would imagine music that would be a little more " soothing" would be better..

When he plays he does it in such a way that the heart feels it. Harmony is conducted with such style. The listener quietly holds his breath so that the ears do not miss a single note. The sounds give the most beautiful echoes,
In short: in the midst of pleasure, surprise and repose you forget yourself and listen to

Just what the doctor Ordered.
