Caesarean section is one of the most important operations surgeons carry out. C-Section as it is sometimes called is an operation where an obstetrician cuts open the belly of a pregnant woman and her uterus or womb so as to assist her in delivering her baby. This also perhaps is the commonest and major surgery women undergo. There are times when caesarean sections are planned for patients but there are also times they are not planned for at all and in which case they are referred to as emergency caesarean sections. For any of various reasons, a caesarean operation may be pre-planned.
