General Surgery

“Wherever the art of Medicine is loved, there is also love for Humanity .”


General Surgery is a medical specialty that surgically treats diseases of the digestive and endocrine systems, the breasts, skin, soft tissues, abdominal organs, and the abdominal wall. General surgeons can solve the emergencies of surgical specialties such as vascular and thorax, initially to stabilize a patient before referring him to the corresponding specialist.

The term "general" for these surgeons is relative based on everything they can perform since they are health professionals with a high degree of specialization, capable of solving complex pathologies coordinating with other specialties, and addressing treatment in a multidisciplinary way in favor of the patient.

General surgeons must have a solid knowledge of the fundamental aspects of surgery to treat the most common surgical problems, especially about the organs, apparatus, and systems described above. These doctors should also know the essential elements of intensive care for patients in critical condition, such as surgical diseases, general oncology, trauma, and surgical emergencies.

Some of the interventions that these specialists can perform are:

  • Appendicitis
  • Colon cancer,
  • Gastric cancer
  • Eventrations
  • Inguinal hernias
  • Umbilical hernias
  • Cysts
  • Tumors
