When Bjorn Jornsen learned his ear drums suffered from an extremely rare degenerative disease he knew surgery was the only way to preserve his hearing. And as Sweden’s top surgeon he knew there was only one man he could trust to do the job, himself.
When asked if he thought the operation was a success, Bjorn shouted. ‘WHAT?!?!’
Bjorn had spent years in the top of his field, even doing operations on some the planet’s top celebrities. It was Bjorn who brought Dr. Dre from the brink after a freak headphone accident while beta-testing for Beats by Dre. And Bjorn was flown from Sweden to the US to save David Hasselhoff’s hearing after he listened to one of his own records. And with the aid of local anesthetic and some tiny little mirrors, Bjorn was able to perform the surgery on himself.
Read what else Bjorn had to say in our interview below.

BJ: No thanks, I already ate.
