Patient-Centric Guide to Surgical Intervention
Surgery is described as a medical or dental specialty that uses intraoperative approaches to treat a disease, repair an injury, modify the structure or function of an anatomical region, or collect a sample of biological tissue for further investigations.
Surgical procedures usually involve accessing the human tissues by an incision through the skin layer. A surgical approach is decided based on the organs involved and their interrelation with the surrounding anatomical structures. Moreover, surgeries can be performed to treat trauma or an acute illness or damage (emergency surgery) or can be planned in advance following a medical clinical assessment by a qualified healthcare specialist (elective surgery).
Surgery 101 provides a comprehensive guide on what to expect when undergoing a specific surgical procedure, potential benefits and risks associated with the procedure, and how to prepare at best for the intervention.
