General surgery encompasses a wide range of elective and emergency procedures.
Appendicitis is a condition that involves inflammation and infection of the appendix, a small organ located in the lower right part of the abdomen. Symptoms include pain in the lower right abdomen, nausea, vomiting, and fever. Treatment typically involves surgical removal of the appendix, and early diagnosis and treatment are important to avoid complications such as a perforated appendix.
Gallstone disease is a common condition characterized by the formation of hard deposits called gallstones in the gallbladder. Symptoms can range from mild or non-existent to severe pain in the upper right abdomen, nausea, vomiting, and jaundice. Treatment options include observation, medication, and surgical removal of the gallbladder.
A skin lesion is an abnormality in the skin’s appearance that can range from a minor blemish to a more serious condition. Some skin lesions may require surgery. Lesions that typically require surgery include skin cancer, such as melanoma or basal cell carcinoma, as well as benign growths that are causing discomfort or cosmetic concern, such as lipomas or cysts.
A skin or perianal abscess is a painful, pus-filled pocket that forms under the skin. It is usually caused by a bacterial infection that results in the body’s immune system creating a wall around the infection to prevent it from spreading. In some cases, a skin or perianal abscess may require surgical intervention to drain the pus and prevent further complications.
