Depth Psychology: Surgery indicates the need to remove something from your emotional life. While the dream sometimes reveals a fear of illness, most of the time it means drastic changes because of something you did.
If someone has experienced surgery, a dream about surgery could be putting one back in touch with the emotions one felt around the operation. Alternatively, a dream about surgery could represent a more general concern about one’s health. Metaphorically, a dream surgery could reflect a feeling that we are “operating” on our emotions, such as removing our heart (a symbol of affection).
To dream that you or someone else is undergoing surgery suggests that some aspect of your life - a person, issue, or situation - needs to be removed.
It is influencing you negatively. Perhaps someone in power is trying to persuade you to do something you are uncomfortable with. Alternatively, you are feeling the influence of some authority figure. This dream may also be incorporating your anxieties regarding a scheduled operation or your general well-being.

Material aspects: To find ourselves in a doctors’ surgery in dreams would indicate that we should be considering our health and health matters. Performing surgery indicates that we need to ‘cut out’ contamination or a ‘sick’ part of our personality.
A healing is underway, though it is potentially disruptive and violent in nature. Surgery is usually thought of as a painful and invasive procedure undertaken when some form of healing needs to take place. In its essence, healing is a process that fundamentally alters the structure of some part of the body. All surgeries can be categorized as either removing or adding something to the body.
If something is being removed, begin your investigation in areas of your life where you are facing loss or release.
If you are being surgically enhanced with new material, such as replacement joints or a pacemaker, look to ways in which you are currently taking on new paths or ways of being that are foreign to you. No matter what the surgery is, there is an implication that some area in your consciousness requires dramatic healing.
