What is General Surgery?


General Surgery is the surgical specialty that focuses on the abdominal organs. Despite the term “general”, surgeons who practice general surgery are highly skilled and typically operate on common abdominal complaints such as appendicitis and hernias, along with gallbladder, stomach and intestinal issues. Surgeons must first complete a general surgery residency before further training in a specialty.
