As a chief Neurosurgeon, Dr. Vhora begins the operation. He slices the skin on the skull to make a semi-circular flap that can be pushed aside. He drills holes along the top of the skull, then down toward the ear and back up along the temple. He cuts between the holes with a special burr, then pulls off a section of bone and sets it aside.After having carved open a window on the brain, he dons glasses with magnifying lenses set into them and a headset with fiber optic cables that release a dull blue glow. The cables conduct light from a box behind Dr. Vhora, then wrap over his hair and plug into a spotlight that shines out from his forehead.
