Surgery (from the Greek: χειρουργική cheirourgikē (composed of χείρ, "hand", and ἔργον, "work"), via Latin: chirurgiae, meaning "hand work") is a medical specialty that uses operative manual and instrumental techniques on a patient to investigate or treat a pathological condition such as a disease or injury, to help improve bodily function or appearance or to repair unwanted ruptured areas.

Surgery is kind of redundant, and seems pretty unnecessary, but sometimes, it is needed. I have had seven surgeries, some of which were needed, others that I regret. I've had appendix, wisdom teeth, and tonsils removed. I have then had a double bunionectomy on both feet. Bunions are similar to bone growths on the sides of your feet. I have also had two surgeries on my knee, to prevent my kneecap from dislocating. Both of those surgeries failed though, and I have more pain than I should. Make sure to do your research before you get surgery!!
