All fields have departments (e.g. surgery department, medicine department). Emegency medicine wasnt always its own field and was staffed by a variety of doctors for a long time before it became a dedicated field (about 30 years ago). At some point after that doctors in emergency medicine preferred it to be called emergency department as it has a more legitimate sounding name to it

PSA: an intraabdominal testis that persists beyond puberty needs to be removed due to cancer risk. If never dropped is due to it never forming (or necrosing in utero) that's a different story.

Do you know if you have 2 kidneys? I took care of a pregnant patient in the past that had didelphys and she only had one kidney.
