General surgery is a term used for the surgeons who are trained to operate on all the body like the abdomen, GI tract, breast, soft tissue etc. The more specialized forms of surgeries are then referred to their specialists. Since general surgeons can perform on almost all parts of the body, they have extensive knowledge regarding the anatomy and even physiology of the body. 

They perform diagnostic and interventional surgeries as well. General surgeons are also trained to be able to take care of the patient prior to and after the operation. They also are expected to have knowledge of the clinical side of the things as they are involved in the disease management process as well.

Many a times when there is dearth of the specialist doctors, general surgeons are expected to and are able to, step in. They are known to perform oncological surgeries, pediatric surgery and even at times perform procedures related to obstetrics and gynecology. General surgeons also provide medical aid to the trauma patients, which is an extremely difficult task. Experts in this field are also able to treat burn patients as well. 

Many of the issues treated by the general surgeons include breast surgery like lumpectomy, surgeries of the digestive tract to remove any obstruction, colostomy, hemorrhoidectomy, gastric bypass surgery as well.

Having the right doctor is the first and the most important step towards a healthy life. Surgeons have to execute their job with finesse as they not only have to cure the underlying issue but pay heed to the aesthetics as well. This part is possible only at the hands of a good, detail oriented and a competent doctor. A bad job at stitching especially on the parts of body which are generally visible can potentially have a bad impact on the self-esteem of the patients. 

Moreover, general surgeons have to have a knowledge of a wide range of topics. Surgery is a risky option for many patients like the morbidly obese people. Hence, a general surgeon has to have a sound knowledge for not just anatomy, but clinical concepts have to be strong as well.
