The field of general surgery encompasses a wide range of essential procedures aimed at treating diverse medical conditions. Among the most pressing and commonly performed by general surgeons are gallbladder removal (cholecystectomy), appendectomy for inflamed or infected appendixes, and various types of hernia repairs including inguinal and umbilical. Other frequent surgeries include breast procedures such as mastectomies or lumpectomies for cancer treatment, colon resections for bowel obstructions or cancer, skin lesion and cyst removals, and vasectomies for male sterilization. These surgeries often address acute health concerns and conditions that significantly impact the patient's quality of life, and in many cases, provide life-saving intervention.
