General surgery involves the surgical treatment of diseases of the skin, breast, gastrointestinal tract, liver, pancreas, soft tissue, thyroid, veins and arteries. General surgeons are trained to deal with any surgical emergency like bleeding, infection, bowel obstruction and organ perforation. They are the first point of contact for gravely injured patients and must perform emergency, life-saving procedures like thoracostomy, fasciotomies and emergency laparotomy to stabilize the patient. Surgeries are performed for the purpose of diagnosis, removal of diseased organs or tissue or obstructions of any kind, transplanting tissues or whole organs, implantation of device and repositioning structures to their normal site. The three main types of general surgery are optional or elective surgery where the patient can chose to have the surgery if he/she wants, but it is not essential to continue a good quality of life, required surgery which is essential to ensure good quality of life in future but does not warrant immediate operation and emergency surgery which is doe in reaction to an urgent medical condition like acute appendicitis.
