how to say “surgeon” in Hebrew

מְנַתֵּחַ

Surgery in Hebrew is ניתוח , as in:

היא עברה ניתוח קיסרי.

She underwent a cesarean section.

Likewise, a מנתח is a surgeon when referring to a man and מנתחת for a woman. Often מנתח goes with the word רופא doctor – before it, as in:

הרופא המנתח והצוות שלו עבדו בקפדנות כל היום.

The surgeon and his staff worked diligently all day.

מנתח follows the פיעל verb structure using the word נתח a chunk – as its root. It’s a verb in Hebrew’s present tense, which means that the word is really a participle: מנתח can also mean doing surgery.
