The singing surgeon is back, and this time, he’s got Christmas carols.

Dr. Elvis Francois, an orthopedic surgery resident at the Mayo Clinic, posted a video of himself belting out “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” on his Instagram page.

Christmas came early,” the post read. 

Francois, 32, told in a previous interview that he has been singing since he was a kid, and now sings between procedures to relax.

"I grew up singing and I have always been interested in music," Francois said. “Singing helps keeping spirits lifted between cases. I usually sing around the operating staff.”

He believes music is medicine, and has said that he's been known to sing to patients every now and then.
