"Surgery" (UK) = "Office Hours" (USA). Usually only used by medics and politicians, but sometimes by academics (I suspect a tad tongue-in-cheekily). and I think also by people like counsellors (e.g. debt, employments, legal) who offer free advice to those needing help. Neither politicians nor Medical Doctors work in the same way in the two countries, so there really is no direct translation, but I believe this is closest.
