General surgeon refers to doctors who specialize in various surgical procedures. General surgeons use intricate and complex surgical procedures to remove diseases, repair injurises, and promote healing and health.

Typically, surgery refers to a procedure that alters your body’s tissues in order to diagnose or treat a medical issue. Thus, general surgeons perform diagnostic tests to provide guidance on whether you need surgery or not.

General surgeons are typically part of a surgical team including nurses, anesthesiologists, and surgical technicians.
