Are you experiencing abdominal, chest or other bodily pain? In some cases, general surgery may be the answer!
What is General Surgery?
General surgery is a broad field that covers the body from head-to-toe. Its main focus, however, is on the abdominal region.
Although most of the surgeries performed are on the abdomen, general surgery also includes operations on the chest and limbs. Some surgeons even specialize in operations for acid reflux and other common problems, such as hemorrhoids. The most common surgeries result from patients requiring hernia, gallbladder or bowel surgery. In fact, more than 1 million hernia surgeries are performed in the U.S. each year.
If you’re in pain, you should first seek your primary caregiver. If surgery is required, don’t be afraid to ask your surgeon any questions you might have. Educate yourself and trust your surgeon.
