Surgeon

surgeon

(Science: specialist) A medically qualified doctor who has specialised in the removal of organs, masses, tumours, the repair of ruptures, the diversion of channels etc using the knife.

Traditionally in old England this was left to unqualified barbers and presumably because of inverted snobbery, the modern day medically qualified surgeons may prefer to be addressed as Mr or miss instead of dr.

Surgeons are generally highly thought of and even worshipped because the results of their work are generally easily visible (tangible).
