Go under the knife

To go under the knife means to have an operation.

Examples:

England's best footballer won't play at the World Cup. He's going under the knife and won't recover in time for the start of the tournament.

I had tonsillitis eight times before doctors decided that I needed to go under the knife and have my tonsils removed.

Take note

Don't confuse this expression with put to the sword. That phrase means to kill something.

Example:

The captured soldiers should have been kept in a military prison but instead they were put to the sword. Hundreds were killed.
