Q: some of the veterinary surgeons here refer patients to me! とはどういう意味ですか?
A: Yes, exactly. If I am referring patients to you, usually that means I am a doctor and I am sending patients to you for treatment.

Maybe I’m an eye doctor but my patient needs your expertise more than mine, so I tell them to go see you. That is me referring you a patient.

But I’m not sure how it works with your sentence about the vet...?

Q: The surgeon transplanted a liver into the boy. と The surgeon gave a liver transplant to the boy. はどう違いますか?
A: The first one is what we are more likely to say. It describes what actually happened in a direct way. There is no doubt who did what, and to whom.

The second one would be perfectly understood, but it sounds odd because we wouldn't use "liver transplant" as an object like this. It has the same feeling as saying: The surgeon gave a present to the boy.

This is a very subtle thing, and I'm not explaining it well. Basically, in the first example "transplanting" is the action. In the second, "giving" is the action. In order to sound natural, always try to match your verb with the key idea you are trying to get across. In this example, I believe that is transplanting.

Q: forensic surgeon と coroner と medical examiner はどう違いますか?
A: Forensic surgeon - a surgeon who operates on victims or people who have died of unknown causes - they try to determine what happened to the person.

A medical examiner is very similar to this however it can depend on context - I believe a medical examiner is not as focused specifically on the forensics. I.e they may be able to determine that someone looks to be poisoned but a forensic surgeon can tell how they were poisoned, what with and when.

A coroner is someone who looks at the information provided either from their own investigation or from others and decides on the official cause of death.


The medical examiner believed that the cause of death was a fall. However upon further examination the forensic surgeon found that the victim was actually poisoned. The coroner ruled that the victim died from being poisoned however it was likely that they were still alive at the time of the fall.

Overall, pretty good, just a few changes.
Q: 'I had an operation.' ★Question; Is this surgeon's word? or patient's word? (A person was saying that it is patient's word. but I am still confusing)

This sentence could be apply to both the surgeon and the patient.

More keywords are needed to verify whether this sentence is mentioned from a surgeon's point of view or a patient's point of view.
