    It is a term used in medicine. You need a glossary of terms to find the equivalent of the word in your language.

    If you have to divide this word into two I suggest you these two halves :
    "peri" and "operative".
    In my opinion, here "peri" is the short form of period.
    The whole word means all the procedures which take place during the period of the operation.

    check in and the check out= before the operation and after it?

    i mean the period starts when you enter the hospital, it takes sometime for them to prepare you for the surgical operation, and after the operation you are supposed to stay at the hospital let's say a few days. The operation takes a few hours but the period this word expresses includes the whole few days. I hope i could clarify it :)
