German term or phrase: Routine-OP
Actually, I'm not sure if it's a medical term or not.
What I need to know is not this term in English, but explanation. Please help me with its full meaning. Thanks

Explanation:
or a routine operation

OP is just short for operation.

This would be run-of-the-mill, scheduled, non-life-threatening surgery.
