General surgery, despite its name, is a surgical specialty that focuses on abdominal organs such as, intestines including esophagus, stomach, small bowel, colon, liver, pancreas, gallbladder and bile ducts, and often the thyroid gland. They also deal with diseases involving the skin, breast, and hernias. These surgeons deal mainly in the Torso.
In vascular surgery diseases of arteries and veins are managed by medical therapy, minimally-invasive catheter procedures, and surgical reconstruction.
Thoracic surgeons treat conditions of the lungs, chest wall, and diaphragm.
