I don't think you understand how surgery works.
As someone who has had a few I feel confident in saying that GURPS does ok here.
First Aid or Physician can stop the bleeding and includes stitches, so is great for saving a life and the go to skill for an emergency. If you have to undergo surgery to save your life your going to be laid up and need time to recover.
