General Surgery is a specialty that focuses on the surgical treatment of abdominal organs, endocrine organs, skin and soft tissue. Some general surgeons further specialise and focus on a narrower area such as breast surgery, vascular surgery, surgical oncology, endocrine surgery, transplantation, laparoscopic surgery and trauma surgery.
This category features specialists in Paediatric Surgery and General Surgery.
In 2009 there were 155 specialists working in general surgery as their main specialty of practice. (AIHW 2011. Medical labour force 2009. AIHW bulletin no. 89. Cat. no. AUS 138. Canberra: AIHW)
