Surgery is a medical procedure that involves the use of invasive techniques to diagnose or treat a condition. Surgery can be performed for a wide range of conditions, including injuries, diseases, and deformities. The type of surgery will depend on the condition being treated.

There are different types of surgery, including:

  • Minimally invasive surgery: This type of surgery uses small incisions and specialized instruments to access the affected area. This type of surgery often results in less pain, quicker recovery times and less scarring compared to traditional open surgery.
  • Open surgery: This type of surgery involves making a larger incision to access the affected area.
  • Robotic surgery: This type of surgery uses a computer-controlled robotic system to perform the surgery, allowing for greater precision and control of the instruments.

Recovery times and risks vary depending on the type of surgery and the individual’s overall health. It is essential to follow post-operative instructions provided by the surgeon and to keep follow-up appointments to ensure the best outcome.
