General Surgery

General surgery is an indispensable medical specialty that forms the cornerstone for numerous other forms of surgical practice. Covering an array of procedures, general surgeons often refer to themselves as being “surgeon’s surgeons” due to their comprehensive understanding of different approaches and techniques employed during surgeries.

Responsibilities and Areas of Expertise

  • Trauma Surgery: General surgeons specialize in trauma surgery for injuries sustained through accidents or emergencies, stabilizing patients before performing lifesaving surgeries as necessary and working alongside specialists when required.
  • Hernia Repair: Repairing hernias – protrusions of organs or tissues through abdominal walls – are among the many tasks undertaken by general surgeons on an everyday basis.
  • Breast Surgery: General surgeons play an invaluable role in diagnosing and treating breast cancer through lumpectomies or mastectomy surgeries.
  • Thyroid and Endocrine Surgery: General surgeons specialize in performing surgeries on thyroid gland and other endocrine organs to manage conditions like hyperthyroidism or nodules on them.
  • Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS): Today’s general surgeons often specialize in minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic techniques that allow smaller incisions with reduced scarring for quicker recoveries and recovery times.
  • Colorectal Surgery: Surgeons specialize in performing procedures designed to treat conditions like colorectal cancer, diverticulitis, and inflammatory bowel disease by performing procedures on patients referred by general practitioners.
  • Vascular Surgery: Some general surgeons possess advanced training in vascular surgery for conditions affecting blood vessels.
  • Surgical Oncology: While specific cancers usually necessitate oncological surgeons for proper management, general surgeons can perform initial biopsies and offer supportive care services for cancer patients.
  • Emergency Surgery: General surgeons are on call 24-7 to handle urgent cases such as appendicitis, bowel obstructions or abdominal trauma.

Condition Treated:

  • Appendicitis: Appendectomy, the removal of the appendix, is often recommended when there is inflammation within it and requires general surgeon intervention to resolve.
  • Gallbladder Disease: Certain conditions like gallstones – known as cholecystectomy – require gallbladder removal in order to remain functional.
  • Inguinal Hernias: Protrusions located near the groin are typically addressed through hernia surgery repair procedures.
  • Bowel Obstructions: Blockages in the digestive tract may require surgery in order to clear them out and allow proper functioning of digestion.
  • Skin and Soft Tissue Lesions: General surgeons specialize in extracting skin tumors and cysts to restore normal functionality to affected areas.
  • Thyroid Disorders: Surgery may be necessary in treating thyroid conditions such as thyroidectomy.
  • Colorectal Conditions: Colon and rectal cancer, diverticulitis and hemorrhoids may require surgical intervention for proper management.
  • Breast Cancer Surgery: Surgeons offer lumpectomies and mastectomies as treatments for breast cancer.
  • General surgery: General surgery is an ever-evolving field that cuts across numerous medical specializations. General surgeons play an invaluable role in providing patient care, often as part of multidisciplinary teams to achieve optimal outcomes during surgical procedures. Their knowledge, versatility and dedication make them indispensable contributors in healthcare today.
