* The Medic from ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' uses the "advanced technology" variant, combined with WorstAid. This man performs open chest surgery with his bare hands on a conscious patient (who assists in the procedure by "holding his ribcage open), replaced said patient's heart after a "modification" he made caused the first one to explode, left a live bird inside someone's body cavity, and lost his medical license after [[NoodleIncident removing a patient's entire skeleton]]... yet his ability to give the target of his medigun a temporary healing factor makes him vital to a team's success.

* In ''ComicBook/{{Elfquest}}'', the [[HealingHands healers' powers]]. The negative use is also shown, with corrupted former healer Winnowill, who [[BodyHorror creates twisted monsters]] [[InvoluntaryShapeshifting through shaping them against their will]]. However some, like Tyldak (who she gives wings) [[VoluntaryShapeshifting asked her to do it]].

* A self-healing version of this is used by the villainess Lucifer in ''Anime/AngelCop''. She reaches inside her own body to set some broken bones; she's also seen plunging her fingers straight into an enemy's head.

* In the ''Literature/BasLagCycle'', Biothaumaturges use a combination of magic and plain old MadDoctor surgery to "Remake" people with mechanical components or animal transplants. The magic side comes to the forefront when one practitioner answers a threat by starting to shove his hand into a man's chest like wet sand.

* ''Literature/TheBlackMagicianTrilogy'''s healing magic works precisely this way - by making skin contact and re-arranging internal organs, putting bones together, and flushing out poisoned blood via the nearest available cut made by the healer.

* ''Literature/TheBlackMagicianTrilogy'''s healing magic works precisely this way - by making skin contact and re-arranging internal organs, putting bones together, and flushing out poisoned blood via the nearest available cut made by the healer. Using it offensively is theoretically possible, but wizards have access to far easier ways to kill non-wizards, and conscious wizards can easily maintain an 'inner shield' that blocks it, so in practice it isn't done. [[spoiler: Then the Sachakans invade and turn out to, while in possession of immense raw magical strength due to their use of BloodMagic, never have developed the healing technique... meaning they don't know to keep up the inner shield.]]

& Trafalgar Law's Op-Op Fruit from ''Franchise/OnePiece'' gives him an ability that is similar to this, although limited to a space he himself conjures called Room. The power is very close to RealityWarper status, being able to mess with people's bodies through medical operation techniques that don't hurt or kill, most of the time.
