Surgery is a medical specialty that covers surgical interventions on the human body. As it is a complex medical discipline, various specialties aimed at treating multiple organs and systems of the human body have emerged. Today, the term ""surgery"" means the field of general (also called abdominal) surgery. In essence, surgery uses various techniques. Different surgical interventions' primary goal is to treat a specific disease by removing the diseased tissue, restoring tissue/organs needed by the body, or implanting an artificial body. In some cases, surgery is used to relieve the symptoms of certain diseases and injuries. Depending on the operation's scope, the location and severity of the disease process, the technique and methods used in surgery, and many other factors, there are several main types of manipulations. When choosing a surgical technique for each patient, many factors are taken into account. The goal is to achieve optimal results with minimally invasive procedures with a good safety profile.
