Surgery is a branch of medicine or of the medical arts that employ surgical techniques or surgical instruments to explore or treat an anatomic lesion, to aid in the improvement of bodily function, appearance or to repair abnormal growths or other pathological conditions like a fracture or trauma. It is often done on patients who require immediate surgery and in cases where there are limited or no other available treatments. However, a surgery requires the involvement of a wide range of specialists like anesthesiologists, surgeons, nutritionists, medical Oncologists, cardiothoracic or orthopedic surgeons, nurses, a psychiatrist and a whole lot more. Surgery is practiced all over the world in countries like Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, Singapore, China, Philippines and South Africa. The popularity of cosmetic surgeries is also growing in these countries.
One of the most common types of surgeries that require surgery is pediatric surgery. Pediatric surgery deals with the growing children. This branch of medicine mainly deals with surgery and corrective procedures required for the fast and complete recovery of the child from a traumatic event or a condition like congenital heart disease.
