General Surgery Department
A surgical specialty that focuses on abdominal contents such as pancreas, small intestine, large intestine, liver, gall bladder, appendix and the thyroid gland (depending on local referral patterns). They also deal with diseases that involve skin, soft tissue, trauma, breast cancer, peripheral vascular surgery, and many others. They also perform endoscopic procedures such as gastroscopy (used to diagnose gastric or duodenal ulcers) and colonoscopy (used to diagnose colon cancer and inflammatory bowel disease). General surgeons are specialized into the following types of surgeries:
- Trauma surgery
Often, they are the first port of call to critically ill or badly injured patients, and must perform a variety of procedures to stabilize those patients, such as thoracostomy (used for the treatment of collapsed lung), cricothyroidotomy (used to treat patient’s airway by making an incision through the skin and cricothyroid membranes), compartment fasciotomies (used to treat the loss of circulation to an area of tissue or muscle) and emergency laparotomy (related to abdominal organs) to cease bleeding.
- Laparoscopic surgery
Gall bladders, appendices and colons can all be removed with this technique. Bariatric surgery can be performed laparoscopically to reduce wound complications in obese patients.
- Colorectal surgery
This surgery treats a wide variety of major and minor colon and rectal diseases including inflammatory bowel diseases (such as ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease), diverticulitis, gastrointestinal bleeding and hemorrhoids.
