A conscious patient sings Vietnamese anthem as doctors from the Việt Nam Germany Hospital, led by Dr. Đồng Văn Hệ remove a tumour from his brain in Hà Nội yesterday. It was the first conscious brain surgery ever conducted in Việt Nam, though the technique is practiced worldwide. The 36-year-old patient had a 6-cm tumour, which caused brain compression that resulted in head pain and epilepsy. The surgery lasted from 10am to 4pm with the assistance of a Japanese anesthesiologist and technician. — VNA/VNS Photo Dương Ngọc
