Tens of Thousands Watch Allen Woman Stream Her Brain Surgery on Facebook While Awake

Schardt won’t feel any pain on the surface of her brain, according to surgeons

On Tuesday morning, 25-year-old Jenna Schardt underwent brain surgery at Methodist Dallas Medical Center while conscious in order to remove a mass of blood vessels in her brain – and thousands tuned in to watch the procedure live on Facebook.

A portion of the brain surgery procedure was streamed on Methodist Dallas’ Facebook page starting around 11:45 a.m., narrated by Methodist’s chief of neurosurgery Dr. Nimesh Patel. Patel also took viewers’ questions live.

The live stream began as doctors awoke Schardt from the light anesthesia she was under as her skull was opened up. Schardt was smiling and conscious, talking to doctors for nearly the entire stream, which lasted about 45 minutes.
