What is Surgery?
Surgery is a medical specialty that uses instruments to perform operations on patients, in order to diagnose or treat disease or injury, improve bodily function, or improve appearance. Surgery is an invasive procedure as it involves cutting into living tissue, or repairing tissue from a previously sustained wound. It does not include things like laser ablation of the cornea, or radiation therapy, which are considered non-invasive medical procedures.
Surgery is a very broad term, and as such, is present in almost every medical discipline. Medical fields such as cardiology, pediatrics, oncology, otolaryngology, orthopedics, neurology, and urology are all related to surgery in some form.
