General Surgery

General surgery, despite the name, is actually a surgical specialty. General surgeons not only perform surgeries for a wide range of common ailments, but are also responsible for patient care before, during, and after surgery. All surgeons must start their training in general surgery; many then go on to focus on another specialty.

General surgeons are trained to operate on the:

  • Alimentary tract (esophagus and related organs)
  • Abdomen and its contents
  • Breast, skin, and soft tissue
  • Endocrine system

In addition, general surgeons are expected to have knowledge and experience in:

  • Surgical critical care
  • Surgical oncology
  • Trauma

Despite the term "general", surgeons that practice general surgery are highly skilled surgeons that typically operate on common abdominal complaints including appendicitis, hernias, gallbladder surgeries, stomach, and intestinal issues.
