* PlayedForLaughs in the [[WebVideo/HydraulicPressChannel Beyond the Press channel]] video "Wife vs. husband air cannon challenge"- the challenge in question was to shoot a secondhand clothing mannequin affectionately named Johnny using the aforementioned homemade air cannon. When Lauri lands a hit on Johnny with a zucchini halfway through the video, Johnny's left arm and right hand pop off, so his wife repairs him using duct tape and they go back to shooting him.
--> '''Lauri:''' "First aid, Finnish way."

* Brain surgery involves drilling a hole in someone's head. The drill is pretty much the same as the one you use at home; just a little more fancy, a '''lot''' more expensive, and more carefully cleaned. At least it looks and acts mostly the same.

** At the end of Meet the Medic, it turns out that he accidentally sewed Archimedes ''into Scout's chest''. In gameplay, occasionally a dead Scout will even have a dove pop out of the corpse!

* There was a woman in rural Mexico who was having some childbirth complications. She was miles away from any hospital, and had no car or phone. Her husband was away at work, and her nearest neighbors were a good distance away. So she drank some tequila and [[DontTryThisAtHome performed the surgery ''on herself!'']] Both she and the baby were fine.

* WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime: Knock Out usually goes a more painless route (as painless as a Decepticon opts to be anyway), and him surgically [[spoiler:inserting a new T-cog into Starscream]] went off without a hitch. However when Megatron asks him to graft a new arm onto him in his pursuit of power, Knock Out wants to put him in stasis, only for Megatron to inform Knock Out that he wishes to be awake to witness it. Knock Out just shrugs, whips out his buzz saw and starts cutting away.

** On a related note, the world's first chainsaws were bone-cutting devices known as [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osteotome osteotomes]]. They're scaled down and hand-cranked, but the basic concept is the same.

* The ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' video ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=36lSzUMBJnc Meet the Medic]]''. Roughly half the video involves the RED Medic performing surgery on the Heavy, in a procedure involving a device (which, as it turns out, enables the Übercharge in-game) getting shoved onto Heavy's still-beating heart, said heart ''exploding'' and being replaced with a "Mega Baboon" heart, and Medic pushing the organ into the Heavy's chest cavity so hard he breaks off a rib. All while the Heavy is awake, mind you.

* This trope is zig-zagged in the ''{{Temeraire}}'' series. Human medical treatment is standard for UsefulNotes/TheNapoleonicWars, however the tools used by dragon surgeons could easily pass for melee weapons... but then given the [[IncrediblyLamePun scale]] of their patients most of the injuries that can be treated by human physicians are relatively superficial.

* PlayedForDrama in ''FanFic/{{Webwork}}'' when the Jorogumo Queen transplants the Vessel [[spoiler: filled with hundred of spider eggs]] into Jade with the only comfort being a rock to bite into, with the whole process given in ''horrifying'' detail, to the point that the author actually interrupts the story with a warning to squeamish readers to skip over that section altogether.
