General Surgery & Sub-Specialties

Surgery is the specialty of medicine that treats diseases and disorders by cutting, removing, or changing the body with an operative procedure that opens the body for therapy. Surgery can mean a minor outpatient procedure, such as a carpal tunnel release, or may be a major procedure that treats life-threatening issues, such as a heart transplant.
