In brief: Let me try to help
To wait for surgery there are two main reasons.
The first one, were you having some health issue they like to clear before they operate. Second the surgery schedule for either the doctor or the operative room is full. Thank you.

In brief: Scheduling
Doctors, like other professionals, have schedules they have to keep.
Many orthopedic surgeons perform elective, urgent and emergent procedures. Surgeries are schedule in the order in which they were scheduled, with priority given to urgent and emergent surgeries. Try to be patient.
