Otorhinolaryngology also called head and neck surgery deals with conditions of ear, nose and throat and the related structures of head, and neck. ENT surgeons a treat range of conditions including ear conditions, nose conditions, throat conditions, head and neck conditions as well as facial cosmetic surgery. With a wide range of sub-specialties in the field of Otorhinolaryngology, the ENT surgeons specialize themselves in Otology, Rhinology, laryngology, head and neck surgery and more
Robotic surgical procedures have been developed to reduce the limitations of these minimally invasive surgical procedures and also helps in enhancing the capability to perform open surgery. This advanced procedure has led to the possibility of remote surgery without the need for surgeons presence. Surgeons can manipulate the surgical instruments using a console and thus reduce trauma and scarring of the patients.
Oral and maxillofacial surgeon is a regional specialist surgeon treating the entire craniomaxillofacial complex they are trained in many other techniques other than surgery such as emergency medicine, general surgery, and anesthesiology. They are the only health care specialists who can administer all levels of sedation, up to general anesthesia. Maxillofacial surgeons train in dentistry, surgery, and general medicine.
It is a modern surgical technique in which operations are performed far from their location through small incisions (usually 0.5–1.5 cm) elsewhere in the body and also called minimally invasive surgery (MIS), bandaid surgery, or keyhole surgery.Laparoscopic surgery includes operations within the abdominal or pelvic cavities, whereas keyhole surgery performed on the thoracic or chest cavity is called thoracoscopic surgery. Specific surgical instruments used in a laparoscopic surgery include: forceps, scissors, probes, dissectors, hooks, retractors and more.Laparoscopic and thoracoscopic surgery belong to the broader field of endoscopy.
It is a field in medicine, allocating with disorders of the rectum, anus, and colon, and is also known as proctology, but the latter term is now used infrequently within medicine, and is most often employed to identify practices relating to the anus and rectum in particular.Surgical forms of treatment for these conditions include: colectomy, ileo/colostomy, polypectomy, strictureplasty, hemorrhoidectomy (in severe cases of hemorrhoids), anoplasty, and more depending on the condition the patient suffers from. Diagnostic procedures, such as a colonoscopy, are very important in colorectal surgery, as they can tell the physician what type of diagnosis should be given and what procedure should be done to correct the condition. Other diagnostic procedures used by colorectal surgeons include: proctoscopy, defecating proctography, sigmoidoscopy.
It is a type of surgery that is performed on the breast. It is generally used to remove breast cancer. Segmental Mastectomy also called as breast conserving surgery is one in which the part of the breast containing tumour is removed. The ultimate goal is to remove the tumour without causing damage to the surrounding tissue.
It is a surgical subspecialty in which diseases of the vascular system, or arteries, veins and lymphatic circulation, are succeeded by medical therapy, minimally-invasive catheter procedures, and surgical reconstruction.Vascular surgery encompasses surgery of the aorta, carotid arteries, and lower extremities, including the iliac, femoral, and tibial arteries. Vascular surgery also involves surgery of veins, for conditions such as May–Thurner syndrome and for varicose veins. In some regions, vascular surgery also includes dialysis access surgery and transplant surgery.
Endocrine surgery is a surgical sub-speciality focusing on surgery of the endocrine glands, including the thyroid gland, the parathyroid glands, the adrenal glands, glands of the endocrine pancreas, and some neuroendocrine glands.These glands secrete hormones into the bloodstream, and have an important influence over the functions of almost all cells in the body. Endocrine surgeons are surgeons with special expertise and training in operations on a number of the endocrine glands including the thyroid gland, the parathyroid glands, the adrenal glands, the endocrine pancreas, and some neuroendocrine glands.
It is a medical procedure in which an organ is removed from one body and placed in the body of a recipient, to replace a damaged or missing organ. The donor and recipient may be at the same location, or organs may be transported from a donor site to another location. Organs and/or tissues that are transplanted within the same person's body are called autografts. Transplants that are recently performed between two subjects of the same species are called allografts. Allografts can either be from a living or cadaveric source. Organs that have been successfully transplanted include the heart, kidneys, liver, lungs, pancreas, intestine, and thymus. Some organs, like the brain, cannot be transplanted. Tissues include bones, tendons (both referred to as musculoskeletal grafts), corneae, skin, heart valves, nerves and veins. Worldwide, the kidneys are the most commonly transplanted organs, followed by the liver and then the heart. Corneae and musculoskeletal grafts are the most commonly transplanted tissues; these outnumber organ transplants by more than tenfold.
Surgical oncology is the branch of surgery applied to oncology; it emphases on the surgical management of tumors, especially cancerous tumors. As one of several modalities in the management of cancer, the specialty of surgical oncology, before modern medicine the only cancer treatment with a chance of success, has evolved in steps similar to medical oncology (pharmacotherapy for cancer), which grew out of hematology, and radiation oncology, which grew out of radiology.
It is the field of medicine involved in surgical treatment of organs inside the thorax generally treatment of conditions of the heart and lungs, this surgery also known as (thoracic surgery). Cardiac and Thoracic surgeons are involved in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions of Heart, lungs and chest.

Ophthalmic surgery is performed by ophthalmologists with great care during the surgical procedure to minimize the damage to the eye or adnexa. Ophthalmic surgery can be performed under topical, sub-Tenon’s, peribulbar and retrobulbar techniques as well as general anesthesia.
It is a surgical specialty involving the renewal, reform, or variation of the human body. It includes cosmetic or aesthetic surgery, reconstructive surgery, craniofacial surgery, hand surgery, microsurgery, and the treatment of burns. Plastic surgeons are dedicated to the reconstruction of facial and body defects caused by burns, trauma, disease and birth disorders. It is reconstructive and has been widely practiced in the past few decades. Aesthetic surgery procedures have been most common and focused on improving a person’s appearance and to remove signs of aging.
Orthopedic surgery or orthopedics, is the branch of surgery that are concerned with situations including the musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic surgeons are concerned with the conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. They can use both surgical or non-surgical procedures to treat various conditions including trauma, sports injuries and congenital disorders. They are devoted towards the prevention, diagnosis,and treatment of disorders of the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons and muscles. Some orthopedists serve as generalists, while others specialize in certain areas of the body.
