General surgery, is actually a surgical specialty by General Surgeons not only perform surgeries for a wide range of common disorders, but are also responsible for patient care before, during, and after surgery. All surgeons need to start their training in general surgery; many then go on to focus on another specialty. They can be found practicing many types of surgery, and the broad-based nature of their education makes it potential for general surgeons to perform many procedures in the performance of their jobs.

Vein ligation and stripping is a minor surgery. It is used to take out a damaged vein and avoid complications of vein damage. If several valves in a vein and the vein itself are severely damaged, the vein is removed. An incision is made below the damaged vein, a stretchy device is threaded up the vein to the first incision and then the vein is gripped and detached. Through this surgery, one or more than one incisions are made over the damaged veins, and the vein is tied off. During surgery in case the ligation cuts off a defective valve and the vein and valves below the defective valve are healthy, the vein may be left in place to continue circulating blood through other veins that still have valves that work well.

Surgery is the ancient form of cancer treatment, and for most patients, part of the curative plan includes surgery. The goals of the surgical oncologist are to remove the cancer and an area of healthy tissue surrounding it, also known as a clear margin or clear excision, in order to avert the cancer from recurring in that area. Sometimes it is not possible to remove the whole tumor, and a surgery known as "debulking" is done to remove as much of the tumor as possible and to relieve indications such as airway obstruction, pain, or bleeding. However the influence of the surgical oncologist goes beyond what is done on the day of surgery itself. As part of the multidisciplinary care team, he or she provides expert opinion about biopsy techniques, optimal image guidance, the likelihood of achieving clear margins, and what role there is if any for surgical management of more advanced disease.

Bariatric surgery is performed on the stomach or intestine to relief an individual with extreme obesity loses weight. Bariatric surgery is a preference for people who have a body mass index (BMI) above 40. It is also an option for people with a BMI between 35 and 40 who have health problems like type II diabetes or heart disease. Two basic types of bariatric surgeries are there: restrictive surgeries and malabsorptive surgeries. Restrictive surgeries work by physically restricting the size of the stomach and slowing down digestion. Malabsorptive surgery is more offensive surgery in addition to reducing the size of the stomach, remove portions of the digestive tract, interfering with absorption of calories.

Laparoscopic surgery is a specific technique for performing surgery was commonly used for gall bladder surgery and for gynecologic surgery. Over the last 10 years the use of this technique has expanded into intestinal surgery. In traditional “open” surgery the surgeon uses a single incision to enter into the abdomen. Laparoscopic surgery uses several 0.5-1cm incisions. Each incision is called a “port” and at each port a tubular instrument known as a trochar is inserted.  Specialized instruments and a special camera known as a laparoscope are passed through the trochars during the procedure. In this procedure, at first the abdomen is inflated with carbon dioxide gas to provide a working and viewing space for the surgeon. The laparoscope transmits images from the abdominal cavity to high-resolution video monitors in the operating room. During the operation the surgeon watches detailed images of the abdomen on the monitor. This system permits the surgeon to achieve the same operations as traditional surgery but with smaller incisions.

Laser surgery is a type of surgery that uses a laser to cut tissue or remove a surface lesion such as a skin tumor. There are a number of different types of lasers that differ in emitted light wavelengths and power ranges and in their ability to clot, cut, or vaporize tissue. The frequently used lasers are the YAG laser, the pulsed-dye laser, the argon laser, the CO2 laser, the excimer laser, the KTP laser, and the diode laser. Laser surgery is commonly used on the eye. Methods used include LASIK, which is used to correct near and far-sightedness in vision, and photorefractive keratectomy, a procedure which permanently reshapes the cornea using an excimer laser to remove a small amount of the human tissue.

Vascular surgery is the branch of surgery in which surgery is performed by medical therapy, surgical reconstruction and minimally-invasive catheter procedures diseases of the vascular system, veins, arteries and lymphatic circulation. The specialty evolved from general and cardiac surgery as well as minimally invasive techniques pioneered by interventional radiology. Vascular surgeons are trained for diagnosing the diseases affecting all parts of the vascular system excluding those of the heart and brain. Cardiothoracic surgeons and interventional cardiologists manage diseases of the heart vessels. Neurosurgeons and interventional neuroradiologists surgically manage diseases of the vessels in the brain.

Robotic surgery or computer-assisted surgery is a type of minimally invasive surgery. “Minimally invasive” means that instead of operating on patients through large incisions, we use miniaturized surgical instruments that fit through a series of quarter-inch incisions. It was developed to enhance the capabilities of surgeons performing open surgery. During this surgery, instead of directly moving the instruments, the surgeon uses one of two methods to control the instruments, either a direct telemanipulator or through computer control. A telemanipulator is a remote manipulator that permits the specialist to perform the regular actions associated with the surgery while the robotic arms carry out those movements using end-effectors and manipulators to perform the actual surgery on the patient.

A surgical nurse is also known as a scrub nurse, specifies in preoperative care, providing care to patients before, during and after surgery. To become a theatre nurse, Registered Nurses or Enrolled Nurses must complete extra training. There are different areas that scrub nurses can emphasis in depending on which areas they are interested in. There are many different phases during surgery where the theatre nurse is needed to support and assist the patient, surgeons, surgical technicians, nurse anaesthetists and nurse practitioners. Pre-operative, they must help to organize the patient and operating room for the surgery. During the surgery, they assist the anaesthetist and surgeons when they are needed. The last phase is post-operative, enduring that the patients are provided with suitable care and treatments.
