The main options: Emergency or Elective

There are as many types of surgeries as there are medical conditions, but they generally break down into two categories: emergency and elective surgeries. Emergency surgery usually happens if you come to the emergency room with a serious condition, like a heart attack or stroke, that requires immediate life-saving surgery. Elective surgery is one that you plan and discuss with your doctor, and many of these can be performed using less invasive techniques.
