What is a Surgeon?

A surgeon is a doctor that performs operations and uses instrumental techniques to improve function, treat disease or injury, improve appearance or repair unwanted ruptured areas. Doctors, dentists and veterinarians perform surgery. Surgery is defined as technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. Surgery is when a patient’s tissues are cut or a previously sustained wound is closed. All forms of surgery are considered invasive. The only types of surgery that are noninvasive are laser ablation or radiosurgical procedures.

Symptoms and Treatments Related to Surgery?

The different types of surgery are elective surgery, semi-elective surgery, emergency surgery, exploratory surgery, cosmetic surgery, amputation, replantation, reconstructive surgery, transplant surgery, minimally-invasive surgery, laser surgery and robotic surgery. After surgery, patients are transferred to the post anesthesia care unit. When the patient is deemed recovered from anesthesia, they are transferred to a surgical ward or discharged. Medication is needed to ease the pain after surgery.
