What’s the difference between a general surgeon and a surgical specialist?
General surgeons are trained in comprehensive care for a wide range of conditions that may necessitate surgery in almost any area of the body. Often responsible for managing trauma and certain types of critical illness and cancer cases, they also operate on the abdomen and pelvis, breasts, skin, chest, head and neck, and more.
Surgical specialists, on the other hand, have completed advanced training and work with a high volume of patients in their area of specialty.
