General surgery is a specialty that covers a wide variety of surgical procedures involved in the treatment of the abdominal organs from the intestines to the esophagus, stomach, small bowel, colon, liver, pancreas, gallbladder, bile ducts and thyroid. Though surgeons may sub-specialise in one or more of these areas using various methods such as laparoscopic surgery, they are still considered to be part of the general surgical team.

These specialist surgeons are experts in treating ailments and diseases in the major body systems including cardiovascular, digestive, endocrine, excretory, skin, muscular, nervous, reproductive, respiratory and skeletal functions.
