I second Mr Nair that you must meet CEO but before this I would suggest you to share yourself to the HR Head and your Immediate Boss/ Supervisor along with the medical advice note by your doctor.
No employer want to have an employee who can became a libality for them or won't like to take risk of your health because they will be responsible for any unwanted situation if happen during working hours or because of them.
For sure you will get early leave after completing the required proceure.
And hope you have enclosed the medical advice duly authorised by your doctor with your application to seek ealry leave before but if not you must submit the same.
This is your prime responsibality to take care of your health and to present these documents so that you can take proper medical treatment.
Wishing you very best of luck and God Bless you

One way is to talk to your HR Head, or CEO or MD or someone at senior level, who will understand the situation and the risk the company will be taking.
The other way is that you proceed on medical leave based on your doctors advice and certificate.
No company or employer can penalise you for going on medical leave on doctors advice.
(let the doctor be specific that surgery is immediate and not something vague that it needs to be done at the earliest)
Inform the company about the medical emergency and offer to complete your notice period after you recover and are allowed by the company to work. In the letter, specify that you had already informed the manager about your problem and had asked for early release and now on followup check, the doctor has ordered immediate hospitalisation.
Only a fool will try to counter leave of absence for surgery on instruction of a doctor. But then there may be idiots everywhere. You will know whether your management (not your manager, but the top management) is a fool or not.....

I would like to share the common practice in my country Indonesia, we have a labor law which has been ratified by ILO.
For certain reason, company has to be responsible due to employee illness because of day to day long work. Doctor has to diagnose the factor behind the illness. Once the doctor give the diagnoses of the illness, then the company will use for decision. There is still responsibility of company to pay the severance when employee exit from company due illness and also company cover the medical expense during he/she went to hospital.
This was under our labor law in Indonesia, hope it helps you to understand company obligation.
