Deborah Cohan, a San Francisco-based OB-GYN, instigated what is probably the first ever operation room dance party, right before undergoing a double mastectomy at Mt. Zion Hospital.

What ensues is the most inspirational six minutes ever as Cohan and her team bump and grind to Beyonce’s hit, “Get Me Bodied.”

Fans can even submit their own versions of Beyonce-loving support here.

With moves like this, Beyonce may have to watch her back.
