General surgery is an indispensable field in medicine that deals with the full range of diseases that require surgical treatment. This discipline requires full knowledge of a broad spectrum of illnesses that could span any part of the human body at any time. Aside from the functions listed, the practice also comprises the performance of invasive diagnostic procedures such as endoscopies, colonoscopies and laparoscopies.
Although a very crucial aspect of a particular patient’s health care experience, it is vital for physicians who practice general surgery to employ proper referrals to other specialties in order to allow for the continuity of the patient’s care.
