What is General Surgery?

General surgery is a surgical specialty that focuses on abdominal organs. For example, general surgeons have expertise in the diagnosis and care of patients with diseases and disorders affecting the abdomen, digestive tract, endocrine system, breast and skin. General surgery also includes cancer removal, hernia repairs and emergency/trauma care.
