Surgery is not fun, but it can often be the difference between life or death. You will likely need the skilled hand of a General Surgeon at some point in your life.
General Surgeons can perform a wide array of surgical procedures including abdominal and intestinal surgery, gallbladder or appendix removal, hernia surgery, surgical biopsies, breast surgery, as well as, trauma and burn operations. Using laparoscopic and robotic surgery techniques, many of the operations they perform are minimally invasive and will have you up in no time.
Some of the most common types of operations general surgeons perform are for abdominal conditions like a gallbladder surgery or a hernia, surgery for appendicitis, as well as treatment of intestinal problems and stomach. General surgeons are skilled in operating on any part of the body except for brain or cardiac. These are a list of operations that general surgeons perform.
This is not a limitation to what your general surgeon might offer. Many general surgeons go on to get additional board certifications in surgical specialties including bariatric surgery, pediatric surgery, vascular surgery, gynecology, and urology, just to name a few.
An experienced General Surgeon will make you feel comfortable by discussing the details of the procedure, costs, and risks and answer any questions you may have before surgery.
