I would say that it wouldn't occur to a native English-language speaker to connect "surge" and "surgical."No full sentence down the memory lane. But the thing I can recall is the phrase was used to characterize a football player or a finished game itself (like "He was going wild and surgical..." or "The play was going wild and surgical...")
I agree it seems odd. I could envision a situation where it could be used as:I would not be very surprised to hear "surgical" in this sense in a football commentary, though "clinical" is more usual. It is the combination of wild with surgical that seems not to make sense.
