Choosing the best music for the patient having surgery

In June of 2019, the use of music for the patient having surgery is an accepted and proven-effective idea!  Study after study has come out, documenting the benefits of music for the patient and especially, music through headphones for the patient DURING the actual surgical procedure.  Why?  Because also in June of 2019, music for the SURGEON is also commonplace and is more often the norm than the exception.

Dozens of patients have awakened from surgery and reported to me that they had heard the conversations of the people in the operating room and many of them, found it to be disconcerting at the least, and insulting, at the worst!  Patients also report that the doctor was playing music that they didn’t care for and, on top of their anxiety and fear, it was just too much.

That is why we created the Surgical Serenity Solutions pre-loaded headphones and now the SSS mobile app!  All of our  music has the ability to quickly engage rhythmic entrainment, which synchronizes the patients natural body rhythms (breathing and heartbeat) to the pulse of the music.  We created this purely instrumental music in five different genres, so that there will be at least two, hour-long playlists that every patient will probably like and be very comfortable with.

And with our mobile app, the hospital can subscribe to all five playlists, or the individual patient can purchase one of more playlists for their upcoming surgical or dental procedure.  If you have an upcoming procedure, you can test our mobile app by going to and let us know what you think.  Any ideas, suggestions or criticisms would be welcome.

We are hoping to eventually create dozens of these playlists for people and cultures around the world, but we need your feedback.  The above link is for the iPhone, but if you have an Android, go to

We look forward to receiving your feedback!
