General Surgery

General surgery is a medical specialty that deals with the surgical treatment of a wide range of conditions that affect the abdomen, skin, breasts, endocrine system, and many other organs and tissues. General surgeons also use endoscopic techniques to assess and diagnose abdominal problems. They perform emergency surgeries such as those for appendicitis, trauma, and ruptured aneurysms.
