When our brain works properly, when our heart pumps normally, and when our bones and muscles move with ease, we are barely aware of just how remarkable a machine the body is. But when something goes wrong and that machine breaks down, the mechanic you need is often a surgeon. Surgeons mend bone and tissue and repair major organs damaged by disease and injury.
Surgeons are doctors who treat and correct injuries, diseases, and deformities by operating on patients.
Many surgeons specialize in such areas as brain, heart, and orthopedic (skeletal) surgery.
