General surgery is a medical specialisation with focus on the contents of the abdomen. Abdominal contents include the oesophagus, stomach, small and large intestines, and the liver, to name a few. General surgery also deals with diseases of the thyroid gland, the skin, the breast, and other soft tissues of the body. Additionally, a general surgeon is vital to the treatment of different types of trauma, and the associated vascular surgeries. Treatment of hernias and varicose veins is also the responsibility of the general surgeon. General surgeons frequently need to work in tandem with other surgical specialists in treating specific conditions like: diseases of the liver or the biliary system, pancreatic surgery, surgery of the colon, surgery of the arteries and veins, and breast surgery. Whenever possible, laparoscopic surgical techniques are used. The benefits of laparoscopic procedures are: small incisions, less discomfort after the procedure, faster recovery, short stays in the hospital, and very minimal scars.
