Music during surgery: what are the options


These headphones are allowed in surgery around the world

At any time of night or day, people around the world are having surgery.  Sometimes they know in advance and sometime they don’t, but if having music through headphones is an option you should always take it.  Why?  Because research studies around the world that using music before, during and after surgery can greatly reduce the amount of  of various medications needed! 

Before a person is taking back for surgery (or other medical procedures performed in a hospital or doctor’s office) they are often offered some kind of anxiety medication to calm them and relax them.  What people forget is that music can do the very same thing and in a much safer and totally free way.  Taking music into surgery with you can also greatly reduce the amount of anesthesia that you need, and taking into recovery can actually decrease the amount of pain medication you require.

When you can accomplish these things with the music you love and that calms you down, why wouldn’t you do it?  What are the options?  You can download the music that I have chosen as ideal for surgery at, you can purchase the pre-programmed cordless headphones at or you can take your own music in on an iPod or other MP3 player. 

If you’re not sure what would be best for you, you can email me or even have a 30-minute private consultation about your surgery, your taste in music and what might work best for you!  Just go to  I wish you the best experience possible and look forward to hearing from you!


Smartphones in surgery?


The question has been asked of us, whether or not smartphones are allowed in surgery?  The answer appears to be a resounding “yes!!” 

Smartphones have apparently been in the operating room for many years now and are primarily being used by the doctors and staff to get quick information. 

Of course our purpose is to stream music to the patient through our surgery music app.  Our patented process will be available for smartphones by the end of the year and will probably appeal to a younger, more “techie” population.  It will also be extremely affordable and not require any outside approval or permissions.  Stay tuned for updates to this exciting innovation from Surgical Serenity Music.


Surgical Serenity accepted into new facilities

Our Surgical Serenity Music and headphones are being accepted into new facilities every day! They are already in use at the Mayo Clinic, the Cleveland Clinic and Case Western/University Hospital in Cleveland. They’ve been used as far away as England and Hawaii and are in use in many U.S. states now.

Why? Because this is not just any music that has been written for relaxation or medical purposes. This music has been chosen over a 20-year span by someone who understands not only how much affects the mind and the body but by someone who understands what the mind and body typically go through before, during and after surgery.

Surgery is a dangerous process but in many cases, not having it can be far more dangerous. If you or someone you know needs surgery but is so fearful of the process, the anesthesia, the pain meds, or the recovery period, adding the Surgical Serenity Music to the formula might just make all the difference.

Listening to this music before the procedure for at least 30-45 minutes will definitely calm your mind and body and slow down the racing heartbeat and pulse. The more relaxed you are when taken back for surgery, the less anesthesia you will require to be fully anesthetized. The less anesthesia you have, the faster you will wake up and the faster you will recover from the procedure. It really is very logical and simple when you look at it like that and I have some wonderful comments from those who have tried it!
