A: Parallelism issue. Surgeries can't be parallel to simple gerund - Operating
B: Parallelism issue. "in" after and is causing parallelism issue.
E: No conjunction to join 2 parallel elements - surgeries and minute and critical operations. We need "and" here.

C/D: Not really sure here. Would request experts to chime in.

In this situation, I would pick C over D because "operations that are minute" is too wordy and GMAT would prefer an adjective "minute" over a clause (that are minute). (NOTE: I only did this because I couldn't decide between C and D).

I agree with your reasoning. Moreover logically "minute operations" include "micro surgeries" - thus separating them with "and" is incorrect.
(In case there is a technical difference between "minute operations" and "micro surgeries", GMAT would not expect the candidate the know the same and hence would not test on that aspect.)
