A gynecologist from Bordeaux was filmed singing a song to a patient to relax her before an intervention. A practice that the surgeon does regularly.

A melody to calm anxiety. The managing director of the Bordeaux Nord Atlantique Group published, on Saturday January 7, a video of a surgeon, doctor Aïcha N’Doye, singing a song to a patient in the operating room.

This extract moved the web. The gynecologist and senologist practitioner, in intervention dress, begins “If I Ain’t Got You” by Alicia Keys while looking her patient in the eyes. The goal? Reassure and relax her before anesthesia. A practice that the doctor started when she was an intern.

“A patient was very agitated at the time of the anesthesia, impossible to infuse her, to put her to sleep so I told myself that I was going to try to sing her a song”, she confided to our colleagues from BFM TV.

“Where I work, I have patients in complex situations, a lot of oncology or very long care pathways,” she added, explaining that she adapted to each patient, depending on the need or not a song and the title of the song sometimes requested.
