All operations on the musculoskeletal system and on all internal organs in the human body are carried out within the context of surgery. Surgery is divided up into various specialist areas such as Abdominal Surgery, Vascular Surgery, Cardiac Surgery, Neurosurgery, Orthopaedic Surgery, Plastic, Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery and Trauma Surgery.
