General surgery is a discipline that treats the systemic and local diseases in the body with surgery and integrates with many medical branches. Although it is one of the oldest branches of surgical medicine, it is based on the principle of surgical treatment of diseases, injuries and structural defects that can not be healed by drugs or other forms of treatment. Throat (thyroid gland), stomach, small intestine, large intestine, breast, esophagus, hernias, liver, rectum, anus, gall bladder, biliary tract, endoscopic and laparoscopic surgical procedures can be counted as part of General Surgery. General Surgery is not only concerned with surgery, but also with preventive medicine.
