General surgery is a surgical specialty that mainly focuses on conditions and medical issues within the abdominal area. General surgeons can provide expertise and consultation as well as perform a wide variety of procedures.
In addition to their specialized medical training, general surgery doctors receive similar training to trauma surgeons. Therefore, general surgeons are often involved in or in charge of critical trauma surgery.
