When I was lying on the operation table, I felt like an animal waiting to be slaughtered.

Is the above sentence correct?

Thanks.

No. Normally, it would be "operating" table, not "operation". Otherwise, it's okay.

"Operating Table" is the commonly used expression. An operating table is a special table in an operating room that a person lies on while having an operation. I would prefer to use this term.

It is useful to know that sometimes it is known as a surgical table or operation table.

No. It's called "operating table."
