General Surgery


Comprehensive Surgical Care

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.

Your primary care physician may recommend a general surgery consultation if you are experiencing issues with the following organs:

  • Breasts
  • Endocrine system
    • Adrenal gland
    • Pancreas
    • Thyroid
  • Gastrointestinal system/Digestive Tract
    • Appendix
    • Bile ducts
    • Esophagus
    • Liver
    • Gallbladder
    • Large intestine
    • Rectum
    • Stomach
    • Small intestine
