Perioperative nursing is a nursing specialty that works with patients who are having operative or other invasive procedures. A surgical nurse, also referred to as a theatre nurse, specializes in preoperative care which means they provide care to patients before, during and after surgery. Perioperative nurses work closely with Surgeons, Aesthesiologists, nurse Anaesthetists, Surgeon's Assistants, Surgical Technologists, and Nurse Practitioners. They perform preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative care primarily in operating theatre. Surgical patients (those who have undergone a minor or major surgical procedure) are nursed on different wards to medical patients.

In the theatre room there are too main types of nurses, a scrub nurse, circulation nurse and also RN first assistant. The scrub nurses job is to make sure they are familiar and well educated with every piece of operational equipment. As on request they are required to provide the surgeons with the equipment needed. Circulation nurses have many similar responsible, although they are to insure that the operating room is clear and non-contaminated by previous surgeries or other infections. They are also there to collected, open, clear and sterilise packets containing surgical equipment. RN First Assistant: Surgeons often depend most heavily on the RN first assistant, who provides direct patient care. She watches for possible complications by monitoring a patient’s vital signs, including heart rate, pulse and respiration. If she sees signs of trouble, she immediately alerts the surgeon so he can halt the surgery. She takes direction from the surgeon and also performs emergency care such as CPR and controlling bleeding.

Pediatric nursing is the science of child care and scientific treatment of childhood. This branch of medical science deals with the care of children from conception to adolescence in health care. A trauma center (or trauma centre) is a hospital equipped and staffed to provide care for patients suffering from major traumatic injuries such as falls, motor vehicle collisions, or gunshot wounds. A trauma center may also refer to an emergency department (also known as a "casualty department" or "accident & emergency") without the presence of specialized services to care for victims of major trauma The highest levels of trauma centers have access to specialist medical and nursing care including emergency medicine, trauma surgery, critical care, neurosurgery, orthopedic surgery, anesthesiology and radiology, as well as highly sophisticated surgical and diagnostic equipment.

Maternal-fetal medicine an obstetrical subspecialty, sometimes referred to as perinatology that focuses on the medical and surgical management of high-risk pregnancies and surgery on the fetus with the goal of reducing morbidity and mortality.

Vitrectomy is surgery to remove some or all of the vitreous humor from the eye. Pars plana Vitrectomy is an operation accomplished in the deeper part of the eye, all of which involve removing some or all of the vitreous humor, the eye's clear internal jelly. Vitreo-retinal surgery is the surgical sub-specialty of ophthalmology that deals with surgical management of retinal and posterior segment diseases and disorders. Cataract surgery is the removal of the natural lens of the eye. Glaucoma is a group of diseases affecting the optic nerve that results in vision loss and is frequently characterized by raised intraocular pressure (IOP). Laser photocoagulation, or photocoagulation therapy, is the use of a laser to seal a retinal tear.

Oral & Maxillofacial surgery (OMS) specializes in treating many diseases, injuries and defects in the head, neck, face, jaws and the hard and soft tissues of the Oral (mouth) and Surgical Nursing region. Cosmetic surgery is a unique discipline of medicine focused on enhancing appearance through surgical and medical techniques. Cosmetic surgery can be performed on all areas of the head, neck and body. Maxillofacial regeneration (reformation of the facial region by advanced stem cell technique). Dento alveolar surgery is the surgery to remove impacted teeth, difficult tooth extractions, extractions on medically compromised patients, bone grafting or preprosthetic surgery to provide better anatomy for the placement of implants, dentures, or other dental prostheses.

Plastic surgery is a surgical specialty involving the restoration, reconstruction, or alteration of the human body. It includes cosmetic or aesthetic surgery, reconstructive surgery, craniofacial surgery, hand surgery, microsurgery, and the treatment of burns. Reconstructive surgery is, in its broadest sense, the use of surgery to restore the form and function of the body. Maxillo-facial surgeons, plastic surgeons and otolaryngologists do reconstructive surgery on faces after trauma and to reconstruct the head and neck after cancer reconstructive procedures. Reconstructive surgery is performed on abnormal structures of the body caused by congenital defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma, infection, tumors or disease. It is generally performed to improve functions, but may also be done to approximate a normal appearance.

Cardiovascular (heart) surgery is surgery on the heart or great vessels performed by cardiac surgeons. Frequently, it is done to treat complications of ischemic heart disease (for example, coronary artery bypass grafting), correct congenital heart disease, or treat valvular heart disease from various causes including endocarditis, rheumatic heart disease and atherosclerosis. It also includes heart transplantation. A more subtle complication of neurocognitive deficits attributed to cardiopulmonary bypass is known as post perfusion syndrome, sometimes called "pumphead". 

Open heart surgery is a surgery in which the patient's heart is open and surgery is performed on the internal structures of the heart.

An oncology nurse is a specialized nurse who cares for cancer patients. Surgical Oncology Nursing provides you with a detailed examination of surgical patients with cancer from diagnosis to survivorship. Caring for surgical patients with cancer involves a diverse healthcare team with many hands touching patients at different stages, and the editors of this new book bring a varied set of backgrounds, from nurse navigation to advanced practice nursing.

The aims of Intensive and Critical Care Nursing are to promote excellence of care of critically ill patients by specialist nurses and their professional colleagues to provide an international and interdisciplinary forum for the publication, dissemination and exchange of research findings, experience and ideas; to develop and enhance the knowledge, skills, attitudes and creative thinking essential to good critical care nursing practice. These specialists generally take care of critically ill patients who require mechanical ventilation by way of endotracheal intubation and/or titratable vasoactive intravenous medications. In addition, Clinical Nurse Specialists can certify in adult, neonatal and pediatric acute and critical care (CCNS)

The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) combines advanced technology and trained health care professionals to provide specialized care for the tiniest patients. NICUs may also have intermediate or continuing care areas for babies who are not as sick but do need specialized nursing care. Emergency nurses frequently contact patients in the emergency department before the patients see physicians.

Surgeon's Assistants are qualified practitioners during surgery who are licensed practitioners with sufficient training to conduct a delegated portion of a procedure without the need for more experienced supervision and who are approved by the hospital for these operative or patient care responsibilities. During a surgical procedure a surgical assistant functions in the role of a second physician in the operating room. The healthcare professionals practicing as surgeon assistants varies internationally and each country has legal requirements for the scope of practice for the surgeon assistants.

Nursing is a profession within the health care sector focused on the care of individuals, families, and communities so they may attain, maintain, or recover optimal health and quality of life. Nurse education has undergone a process of diversification towards advanced and specialized credentials; minimally invasive surgery refers to surgical techniques that limit the size of incisions needed and so lessens wound healing time, associated pain and risk of infection. The front-runners of minimally invasive procedures were interventional radiologists. Robotic surgery allows doctors to perform many types of complex procedures with more precision.
