General Surgery is a surgical discipline that focuses on abdominal contents including digestive organs like the esophagus, stomach, small bowel, and colon, as well as organs such as the liver, gallbladder, and pancreas. General surgeons must possess an in-depth knowledge of a broad array of conditions, and may specialize in any number of disciplines including minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery, colorectal surgery, surgical oncology, and surgical critical care. Owing to the breadth of knowledge required by general surgeons, those who wish to specialize in this area in the United States must complete a five- to seven-year residency in the discipline, as well as pass an examination administered by a certifying organization. The general surgeons at Blue Valley Hospital possess extensive expertise and experience in the field, and have a strong record of achieving patient satisfaction and success.
