Abstract

Introduction: The interplay between surgery, internal medicine, and anesthesia is fundamental to the comprehensive care of patients, particularly in complex clinical scenarios. Understanding the dynamics of these interactions is crucial for improving patient outcomes and advancing healthcare practices.

Objective: To review the existing literature on the collaboration between surgery, internal medicine, and anesthesia, identifying key areas of synergy, challenges, technological impacts, and future directions for research and practice.

Methods: An extensive literature search was conducted across multiple databases, including PubMed and Google Scholar, using a combination of keywords related to surgery, internal medicine, anesthesia, patient care, and interdisciplinary collaboration. 22 relevant articles were selected based on predefined inclusion and exclusion criteria, with a focus on those that explored the integration and outcomes of these medical disciplines. Data were synthesized through thematic analysis.

Results: The review highlights the significance of interdisciplinary collaboration in optimizing patient care, the role of technological advancements in bridging gaps between disciplines, and the ethical and patient-centered considerations that underpin successful integration. Education and training emerge as critical components for fostering effective collaboration.

Conclusions: Effective interdisciplinary collaboration between surgery, internal medicine, and anesthesia is pivotal for enhancing patient outcomes. Future research should focus on addressing identified gaps, particularly in the integration of technology and the development of ethical guidelines for complex patient care.
