TKD doesn't say why it's done, but I think the reason is obvious: you're 
fronting the object for emphasis.

Fronting is commonly done in many languages for emphasis. Saying the 
most important word first is a common thing to do.

So here you're not only saying *DaH HaqwI''e' yISam*/Find the SURGEON 
(not someone else) now!; /you're saying*HaqwI''e' DaH yISam,* which 
essentially means /The surgeon! Find him/her now!/
