General surgery is a surgical specialty that focuses on abdominal contents including esophagus, stomach, small bowel, colon, liver, pancreas, gallbladder, appendix and bile ducts, and often the thyroid gland.

The general surgeons have the following sub-specialize:

  1. Trauma surgery
  2. Laparoscopic surgery
  3. Colorectal surgery
  4. Vascular surgery
  5. Endocrine surgery


Also called as weight loss surgery which is used to remove the excess weight from people have obesity problems. There are many procedures in this kind of surgery. First, a small stomach pouch, approximately one ounce or 30 milliliters in volume, is created by dividing the top of the stomach from the rest of the stomach. Next, the first portion of the small intestine is divided, and the bottom end of the divided small intestine is brought up and connected to the newly created small stomach pouch. The procedure is completed by connecting the top portion of the divided small intestine to the small intestine further down so that the stomach acids and digestive enzymes from the bypassed stomach and first portion of small intestine will eventually mix with the food.

This type of surgery can be divided into different types augmentation, reduction and reconstruction. Breast augmentation is performed to enhance the appearance, size and contour of a woman's breasts. Breast augmentation is performed with implants that can be placed over or under the pectoralis chest muscle. The incision can be placed in the axilla (armpit), areola or lower breast. Large, heavy, pendulous breasts can be uncomfortable. The excess weight can cause neck pain, back pain, skin irritation, bra strap indentations, numbness or weakness. Breast reduction is known as reduction mammoplasty. The procedure involves removal of excess skin, fat and glandular tissue.

Endocrine surgery is a surgical sub-speciality focusing on surgery of the endocrine glands, including the thyroid gland, the parathyroid glands, the adrenal glands, glands of the endocrine pancreas, and some neuro endocrine glands. Surgery of the thyroid gland constitutes the bulk of endocrine surgical procedures worldwide. This may be done for a variety of conditions, ranging from benign multinodular goiter to thyroid cancer.

Hernia repair refers to a surgical operation for the correction of a hernia—a bulging of internal organs or tissues through the wallthat contains it. It can be of two different types: herniorrhaphy or hernioplasty. This operation may be performed to correct hernias of the abdomen, groin, diaphragm, brain, or at the site of a previous operation. Hernia repair is often performed as an ambulatory procedure.

Types of repair

  1. Herniorrhaphy is making a long incision directly over the hernia then using surgical tools to open the cut enough to access it.
  2. Hernioplasty is covering the opening with a flat, sterile mesh, usually made of flexible plastics, such as polypropylene, or animal tissue.

Anesthesiology also called anesthetics s the medical specialty concerned with anesthesia (loss of sensation) and anesthetics (substances that cause this loss). Anesthesia is total or partial loss of sensation with or without the loss of consciousness.

Various forms of anesthesia are conducted throughout the hospital and beyond. In general anesthesia a reversible state of unconsciousness is achieved. It can be divided into three stages: induction, maintenance and emergence.

Obstetrics is the branch of medicine that focuses on women during pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period. Gynecology is a broader field, focusing on the general health care of women and treating conditions that affect the female reproductive organs. Medical doctors who choose to specialize in obstetrics and gynecology must undergo at least four years of post-medical school training in the areas of women’s general health, pregnancy, labor and delivery, preconceptional and postpartum care, prenatal testing, and genetics.

Eye surgery, otherwise called visual surgery or Ophthalmic surgery, will be surgery performed on the eye or its adnexa, regularly by an ophthalmologist. The eye is a delicate organ, and requires extraordinary care some time recently, amid, and after a surgical methodology. A specialist eye specialist is in charge of choosing the proper surgical methodology for the patient, and for taking the essential well being safety measures. Notices of eye surgery can be found in a few antiquated content. Today it keeps on being a generally rehearsed sort of surgery, having created different procedures for treating eye issues.

Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are unique among dental specialists in a number of ways. After completing four years of dental school, they go on to spend another four years in a hospital-based residency program for surgery. There, they are trained alongside other medical residents in the techniques of emergency medicine, general surgery and anesthesiology. In fact, they are the only health care specialists (aside from anesthesiologists) who can administer all levels of sedation, up to general anesthesia.

Orthopaedic Surgery is a discipline of surgery that is concerned with the axial and appendicular skeleton and its related structures. There are various subspecialties or subdivisions including fractures, arthritides, soft tissue processes, tumors, metabolic conditions, congenital and acquired conditions. A medical student rotation exposes one to various aspects of Orthopaedic Surgery. This rotation should provide a variety of experiences ranging from operative, office and clinical practice and emergency room experience.

Otorhinolaryngology is a surgical subspecialty within medicine that deals with conditions of the ear, nose, and throat and related structures of the head and neck. Doctors who specialize in this area are called otorhinolaryngologists, otolaryngologists, ENT doctors, ENT surgeons, or head and neck surgeons. Patients seek treatment from an otorhinolaryngologist for diseases of the ear, nose, throat, base of the skull, and for the surgical management of cancers and benign tumors of the head and neck.

Plastic, cosmetic, and reconstructive surgery refers to a variety of operations performed in order to repair or restore body parts to look normal, or to change a body part to look better. These types of surgery are highly specialized. They are characterized by careful preparation of the patient’s skin and tissues, by precise cutting and suturing techniques, and by care taken to minimize scarring.

Robotic surgery is a method to perform surgery using very small tools attached to a robotic arm. The surgeon controls the robotic arm with a computer.Robotic surgery offers many benefits to patients compared to open surgery, including:

1. Shorter hospitalization

2. Reduced pain and discomfort

3. Faster recovery time and return to normal activities

4. Smaller incisions, resulting in reduced risk of infection

5. Reduced blood loss and transfusions

6. Minimal scarring

Robotic surgery is an advanced form of minimally invasive or laparoscopic (small incision) surgery where surgeons use a computer-controlled robot to assist them in certain surgical procedures. The robot’s “hands” have a high degree of dexterity, allowing surgeons the ability to operate in very tight spaces in the body that would otherwise only be accessible through open (long incision) surgery.

Surgery as a medical field has been changing rapidly since the late 1800s, in large part thanks to the development of safe and effective anesthesia. Surgical oncology is a specialty that focuses on the surgical treatment of a variety of tumors. Cancer tumor that spreads further from its primary site is less likely to be controlled by surgery. The type of risks that cancer surgery presents depends almost entirely upon the part of the body being biopsied or excised. Risks of surgery can be great when major organs are involved, such as the gastrointestinal system or the brain. These risks are usually discussed explicitly when surgical decisions are made.


Surgical critical care is a specialty of surgery and a primary component of general surgery related to the care of patients with acute, life-threatening or potentially life-threatening surgical conditions. Surgical critical care not only incorporates knowledge and skills of nonoperative techniques for supportive care for critically ill patients but also a broad understanding of the relationship between critical surgical illness and surgical procedures.


In minimally invasive surgery, doctors use a variety of techniques to operate with less damage to the body than with open surgery. In general, minimally invasive surgery is associated with less pain, a shorter hospital stay and fewer complications.
