WATCH: This Doctor Heals With His Hands And His Voice

Music can soothe the soul. It can also heal. Dr. Elvis Francois, an orthopedic surgeon at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, believes music is medicine. That’s why you might catch him crooning during a break in the operating room.

His voice not only heals, but lifts spirits too. Check out the video on his Instagram after a spine trauma surgery and you’ll hear him work his magic with an awesome rendition of Nina Simone’s “Feeling Good”. According to Inside Edition, Francois has been singing since he was a child and for the last year at the Mayo Clinic.

He told Inside Edition, “I grew up singing and I have always been interested in music. Recently I’ve been posting it to social media more. Singing helps keep spirits lifted between cases. I usually sing around the operating staff.”

He’s known to break out into song, once or twice a week for the staff and when the spirit moves him, with patients. What’s likely to get him going? When the right song fits the moment. “I’ll pick a song that has some good value and that people can relate to,” he told Inside Edition.

Throughout high school Francois sang in a Capella groups, cementing his love of music.  He told Inside Edition that he’s surprised by the attention his singing is getting.

He’s just modest. He can sing. What he should anticipate, is his patients and staff making requests for him to wow them in song.
