About General Surgery
A general surgeon has specialized knowledge and experience related to the diagnosis, preoperative, operative, and postoperative management, including the management of complications, in nine primary components of surgery, all of which are important to the education of a broadly based surgeon. Modern surgery has developed to such an extent that the body of knowledge and technical skills required have led to surgeons specializing in particular areas, generally an anatomical area of the body or occasionally in a particular technique or type of patient.
