What Does a General Surgeon Do?

Perhaps you have been referred to a general surgeon for a particular surgical procedure. While general surgeons do perform a wide breadth of surgical procedures, they also provide nonoperative treatments, as well as managing preoperative and postoperative services.

General surgery specialists address conditions affecting the following systems and areas of the body:

  • Vascular System

General surgery specialists diagnose and treat carotid artery disease, pulmonary embolism, varicose veins, and many other vascular conditions. 

  • Endocrine System

General surgery specialists diagnose and treat diabetes, Hashimoto’s, Addison’s diseases, and other conditions affecting the endocrine system.  

  • Breast Care

General surgeons can perform procedures that involve the skin and soft tissues of the breast, including lumpectomies and mastectomies. 

  • Alimentary Tract

The diagnosis and treatment of hemorrhoids, colon polyps, colon cancer, and other gastrointestinal disorders can be addressed by a general surgery specialist.

  • Abdominal issues

Hernia repair, gallbladder surgery, and appendectomies are examples of common procedures performed by general surgeons.

Extensive Training and Innovative Techniques

All general surgeons are required to complete a general surgeon education training program consisting of a minimum of five years. At GVS, our general surgery specialists have extensive educational and surgical-training backgrounds. To ensure our patients benefit from the latest approaches in general surgery procedures, many of our surgeons participate in continuing education.
