VIDEO: Woman has dance party in operating room before double mastectomy

Sometimes dancing is the best medicine.

They say laughter is the best medicine, but when you combine it with an awesome dance party it's bound to be the ultimate cure-all.

A woman hosted a flash mob-inspired dance party in the operating room of San Francisco's Mount Zion Hospital shortly before undergoing a double mastectomy.

Deborah Cohen, an OB-GYN and mother of two, decided the best way to deal with the stress of having this procedure is to dance and have a wonderful time.

As soon as the beat drops, the entire medical staff erupts into an all-out dance party to Beyonce’s “Get Me Bodied,” and Deborah shows off her skills.
