    DJ ophthalmologists in surgery by day, mixing music by night


    In 2008, Dr. Aldave shows his then 2-year-old son how to use a basic DJ mixer.

    “It’s really an honor…you’re kind of the engine behind the party,” Dr. Aldave said. “It’s like you’re living the dream.”

    For him, DJing came as a result of hearing the same music played over and over for hours in the operating room. He would enjoy creating mixes of different songs and play them while operating.

    “The work is finding [the different songs]; the fun part is playing it,” he said.

    He said most of the time, his younger patients never believe that it’s his mix playing in the operating room. “The only way to prove it is to give them a link to my SoundCloud page,” he said, adding that it helps him connect with his younger patients.
