What Everybody Ought to Know About Surgical Emergencies?

A surgical emergency is an injury or illness that is acute (rapid onset and/or short course) and presents an instant risk to a person’s life or long-term health.

Surgical intervention is the only option to eliminate or solve the problem successfully.

You should see a doctor as soon as possible if any of the following problems occur:

  • Dull pain near the navel or the upper abdomen that becomes sharp as it moves to the lower right abdomen. This is usually the first sign.
  • Loss of appetite
