Word! Surgery

Surgery

Say: sur-juh-ree

When someone you care about is having surgery, it can be scary. Surgery, also called an operation, is when doctors fix something inside the body to make the person feel better. The doctor may take out a burst appendix, close up a hole in the heart, or even put in a new kidney! Whatever the surgery, after an operation, a person should start feeling better in no time.
