Surgery

 

Surgery is when you need treatment by incision for a condition or injury in the body. Surgeons are highly trained doctors that will use instruments to improve many conditions. They operate to investigate, treat disease, improve appearance, or close ruptured areas of the body. Some surgeries are riskier and more invasive than others, depending on the reason. Certain surgeries are medical emergencies (such as removal of a bullet wound), whereas others are done by choice, such as a cosmetic change.

Common Reasons for Needing Surgery:

  • Severe wounds
  • Infections that create abscesses requiring drainage
  • Dislocations or fractures
  • Removal of tumors or cancer
