General Surgery

What is General Surgery/Surgeon?

General surgery is the field of surgery mainly concerned with disorders of the abdomen. 

A large part of a general surgeon’s workload is to provide emergency surgical care to patients with a wide range of conditions (hence the general).  General surgeons also provide the backbone of trauma surgery in most hospitals in Australia.

Nowadays most general surgeons will have some sub-speciality training or have a sub-speciality interest for their non-emergency caseload.  These include upper GI, HPB, colorectal, endocrine, thyroid and breast surgery.
