Operation Information 24/7
Surgical operations are an important intervention for many medical conditions. Surgical emergencies can even be life or limb saving. In the event of an emergency, dial 112, 911, or in countries where these don’t work, look up the correct emergency phone numbers for ambulance, the fire service or the police in Rescue International’s full list covering 200 countries.
You must give informed consent before any surgical operation unless you are incapacitated, so understanding the purpose of the operation, its risks and benefits and what to expect afterwards is critical.
